The Olde Town Arvada Business Improvement District (BID) announced today that to support local businesses in the COVID-19 recovery effort, street closures in Olde Town Arvada have been extended through November 3, 2020.
“The Olde Town Arvada BID and the City of Arvada felt it was critical to continue to do everything possible to support small businesses during this time,” Joe Hengstler, Executive Director of the Olde Town Arvada BID said. “We want to give the public every opportunity to social distance and be safe while continuing to frequent their favorite Olde Town businesses.”
Street closures in Olde Town Arvada went into effect June 12, 2020. Establishments within the street closures are now serving additional patrons with expanded patio seating and retail outlets are using additional space in front of their stores for art demonstrations, sidewalk sales and more.
