The Calexico City Council, by unanimous vote this week, gave the green light to David Shteremberg and his Bravo partners to build a subdivision, a mobile home/RV park and an industrial park near the intersection of Cole and Bowker roads.
In doing so, the council brought to an end a contentious issue involving legal action and other entanglements that took more than two years to bring to conclusion. We hope the conclusion reached works out to be the best one for the city. We think it can be, but the partners must follow through with the plans approved.
They have said the project could create 1,000 jobs through the industrial park and that is what would make this project positive for the city. In an area where jobs are not easy to find, creating more than 1,000 jobs would certainly be a boost. That would only serve to benefit the Valley's economy.
