The Visitor Restroom Program provides restroom facilities for visitors in downtown businesses through an agreement between the City and the business owner. The City gives the business a Visitor Restroom sign which is displayed outside the business and pays a monthly stipend to cover additional maintenance costs. The business makes their restrooms available to visitors and maintains the restrooms during their regular business hours.
The businesses currently participating in the program are:
|Cafe Gratitude||103 Lincoln Avenue|
|Bookshop Santa Cruz||1520 Pacific Avenue|
|Pizza My Heart||1116 #B Pacific Avenue|
This program is part of an overall objective of making the downtown more comfortable and attractive to visitors and community members. The program is coordinated by the Economic Development Department. If you have questions about the program, please contact:
