At a meeting with local owners and managers of businesses on the block Friday, Feb. 14, City Manager Martin Garza said the city is starting on the west side of the block in front of the park. There, he said, contractors will put in a demonstration of what the entire project will look like.
“We wanted to make sure that we addressed priorities for them,” Garza said. “We wanted to know what times they open, what times they close, what parking areas do they use the most.”
The $2.6 million project revamps Conway Avenue from First to 14th Streets. It includes benches, pavers, palm trees and new lighting. The project also has been expanded to include a splash pad and a “Welcome to Mission” sign.
