Rick Steves at the Main Street fountain. His dream of a European-style plaza in town may soon become a reality.

It appears Rick Steves might get his wish for a closed-to-traffic portion of downtown Edmonds – at least temporarily.

During his second virtual town hall, on May 21, Mayor Mike Nelson responded to a simple question: "Are you going to close Main Street?"

He smiled.

"You better believe we're definitely going to close down Main Street at some point for a pilot project, if you will, so we have a pedestrian-safe experience for folks," he said.

"We're getting a lot of feedback from that," he added. "We're getting good input from our citizens, from community leaders, feedback from businesses."
