WESTMORLAND — The City Council here, acting as the city Redevelopment Agency board, will decide Wednesday whether to purchase property from Westmorland resident Steve Dickerson for the development of a drug- and alcohol-treatment facility for women.
The property, between H and G streets just south of Highway 86, would house a facility to be built and run by Alternative Program Inc. of Bakersfield. The property would be sold to Alternative Program by the RDA for $1 as an incentive to develop the facility in the city.
In other business, the council will look at a preliminary plan for an overpass.
About a year ago the city was awarded $500,000 from the Safe Routes for School Grant from the California Department of Transportation.
The overpass is to be built at the corner of Main and C streets and will pass over Highway 86. It will help schoolchildren more safely cross the highway on their way to and from school.
