CALEXICO, Calif. – Calexico Mayor John Moreno began his State of the City address in a more creative way with a video presentation with interviews from various departments.
“I think the worse is behind us and we’re really looking forward to the future,” Calexico Police Chief Mike Bostic said.
And the fire department has new equipment that will help public safety.
Various projects are underway in Calexico with parks being renovated to include recreational areas to the expansion of the Gran Plaza creating 600 more jobs by next year.
“We’re here at the Gran Plaza Mall which is due for another phase and yet another phase that will take us to the American Canal and triple the size of what we see now,” Mayor John Moreno said.
Roads have also been paved and more to come.
“We’re happy that Cole Road was resurfaced earlier this year in September. It’s one of the many streets in Calexico that needed that resurfacing,” Moreno said.
While Moreno focused on the positives he knows there matters that need to be taken care of.
“I’m a realist. I know we have things that need to happen, but we have things that are happening now,” Moreno said.
