Push underway to make Saratoga Springs outdoor dining permanent

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Outdoor dining has become popular during the pandemic, and in Saratoga Springs it might be a part of the landscape after the pandemic.

New City Accounts Commissioner Dillon Moran is pushing a long-term plan to close some streets to cars on weekends during the spring and summer months.

Restaurants would be allowed to serve customers on sidewalks.

Moran says COVID made it a necessity, but it should continue even after COVID.

It would be Thursday through Saturday nights.
