Could/should University Avenue be a pedestrian avenue?

The idea that University Avenue be a no-auto-traffiic pedestrian-only avenue has come up now and then for years. It's worked in major cities in Europe like Munich to great success. Would this be a good time to test that idea in downtown Palo Alto? Westbound on Lytton and eastbound on Hamilton? Since University is closed for one block past the fire, this might be a good time to experiment. Could University Avenue be made into a real 'tourist destination" as well as a local draw.
