Close to through-traffic

Block car access from 28th or Guerrero to San Jose (and vice versa).

Add parking?

Closing the street to traffic allows for new parking. Not adding parking allows for a bigger public space.

Adding parking at E could offset removing parking at H.

Add parking meters?

Revenue from new meters could be specifically earmarked by the city to pay for local improvements.
