The potential establishment of a Main Street lighting and maintenance district in downtown El Centro will be addressed Wednesday by the El Centro City Council.
The City Council meets in open session at 6:30 p.m. at 1275 Broadway.
The recommendation before the council is to approve a resolution initiating the proceedings to form such a district by ordering the city engineer to prepare a report that analyzes the assessments to be levied and the potential benefits to those properties within the proposed district. The district's boundaries would be the Union Pacific Railroad tracks on the east and Imperial Avenue on the west. Only Main Street would be included.
If the resolution is approved, a public hearing would be conducted Aug. 7 and ballots would go out to all property owners.
