CALEXICO — Skateboarders and sporting children of all types will be happy to know this city's Redevelopment Agency could allocate $500,000 to finish construction of Nosotros Park.
The RDA board will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in City Hall.
At previous meetings, every RDA board member supported the under-construction Nosotros Park project and voted unanimously to spend agency funds this month if state money wasn't available.
It wasn't, city officials were informed.
The Imperial Valley's state assemblyman, David Kelley, informed the city that state general fund money won't be available because of the energy crisis but did say the city could apply for state money from parks and recreation bonds, according to Kelley assistant Bob Ham.
When he was in the state Senate three years ago, Kelley secured $750,000 to begin construction of the park near the international border on the west side of town.
