Short Street which was a popular vending spot, was recently reopened to vehicular traffic and will remain open during the Christmas season.

The San Fernando City Corporation also began a Harris Promenade Enhancement Project which included power-washing, tree lighting, painting, and improved security for this Christmas season.
