MISSION—The Mission Redevelopment Board received an update on the status of the Conway Streetscape Project last week from Ricardo Gallaga with L&G Engineering.
Gallaga explained work on Conway Avenue started on Feb. 19, and crews had already demolished portions of the sidewalk at Leo Pena Placita Park.
“The grapefruit, under the direction of the city, will be cleaned … repainted and reinstalled at the same location,” Gallaga said.
MRA Chairman Richard Hernandez asked Gallaga who designed the park’s grapefruit statue, and City Manager Martin Garza said the city has searched for the designer but has come up empty handed.
