We certainly know how anxious everyone is to have Santini Plaza back open as soon as possible. Especially residents living and visiting the south end of the island.
We’ve been staying on top of the progress at Santini as much as possible with a big assist from Vice Mayor Jim Atterholt.
We did find out Monday morning that once the parking is safe and secure there will be Food Trucks set up in Santini until your favorite restaurants reopen.
There is no hard date set for when that will happen because it’s unknown when the work will be completed. There is underground work that needs to be done. We were told progress is being made and it’s being made as quickly as possible.
Right now, the parking lot is not safe enough to allow for the food trucks. The owners of Santini Plaza have permits for 5 food trucks and plan to add food trucks to their parking lot as soon as possible.
All we can say is stay tuned.
