Clematis Street Could Close to Traffic Permanently

Clematis Street Could Close to Traffic Permanently

One of the ideas coming out of a "walkability" study in the downtown West Palm Beach area, that we've told you about is to block all vehicles from Clematis Street. 

The study was conducted to determine how to make the area more pedestrian friendly and the idea involving Clematis is to put more benches in place.  The city would hope more people would hang out and find downtown more welcoming and spend more money. 

Some business owners like the idea as long as it is on a trial basis, because if business doesn't pick up, they want to be able to go back to allowing cars back in. 

Right now, a city spokesman says it's just an idea.
