Taste of Temescal postponed


In light of the latest guidance from Governor Newsom, we will be postponing the Taste of Temescal, likely to May 2020. We will issue refunds to all who would like one. We will be honoring all the tickets at our postponed event and so urge all who can, to keep their tickets, since the proceeds go to our local schools and nonprofits.

Repave & Redesign of Telegraph Ave.

First Quarter 2020

After the lengthy design process, and discussion with the Cityโ€™s paving contractor throughout Summer 2019, the paving contractor has communicated that they will not have crews available until December 2019. Because of the negative impact paving would have on Temescal businesses during the holiday season, there will be no paving in December. The City anticipates construction beginning in the first quarter of 2020 subject to weather and other considerations.
