(The City of El Centro to receive a check for just over $4.7 million)....The funds are for El Centro's Embellece Downtown Project.

The presentation is scheduled for 2 pm this Friday at the Downtown Square Park. Participating in the presentation will be Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, Cal Trans Officials and El Centro Mayor Sylvia Marroquin. The funds are being awarded through Cal Trans Clean California Program. They were approved last October. The funds will go towards the revitalization of the Downtown Square Park which includes a food truck court within the park, murals, gateway signs, curb inlet screen protectors, tamper proof trash and recycling receptacles, new LED lights, and new benches. Mayor Marroquin says she has a goal of revitalizing the Downtown area, and this project is another step in that direction.
