Nassau County plans to streamline municipal requests to close county roads so businesses can open up and expand outdoor dining, according to Newsday.

County Executive Laura Curren said that local officials could submit requests online and get a response to requests within seven days. Road closures typically have to go to three separate county agencies for approval through snail mail.

The measure is meant to help businesses that are reopening in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Curren said closing roads would help provide “an additional canvas for these businesses to strategically find ways to operate.” [Newsday] — Dennis Lynch
