Caltrans Project – Champlin Slough:
SR 99 south of Los Molinos at the Champlin Slough Bridge continues to be fully closed to through traffic. The detour for this project will be South Avenue. Please anticipate an increase of traffic in this area and plan accordingly if you travel in the Los Molinos area.
Water and Sewer Service Repairs:
- The water service leak in the alley behind Bob’s Tires has been repaired.
Clark Park Playground:
The installation of the new play structure at Clark Park in the old tennis court area has been completed. Painting of the play area around the play structure will start this Friday and continue through Saturday.
Corner Storefront on Fifth and Solano Street:
If you haven’t seen the former M & M Auto Parts Store on the southeast corner of Fifth & Solano Street, it is getting a face lift. The City is very excited about the improvements to this building as well as other store fronts along our downtown corridor. Progress is slowly being made and our downtown is beginning to shine. We thank our Solano Street business/property owners for taking pride in our downtown. This not only improves the appearance of our town, but it hopefully will also improve business activity.
City Planner Christina Meeds attended a Subdivision Map Act Class on Friday, May 27th which she found very informative.
Clark Park Playground & Holistic Playground Painting:
The new playground equipment replacing a portion of the former Tennis Courts at Clark Park has been installed.
The painting of the Holistic Playground covering the remaining portion of the courts will be taking place this weekend. Friday, June 10th from 7:30 a.m. to Noon we will be stenciling the outline of the Holistic Playground, then on Saturday, June 11th from 7:30 a.m. to noon we will begin painting the Holistic Playground. We had to change the times due to the hot weather forecast and the excessive heat watch. If the playground does not get completed, then Dusty Jobe with the PAL group will come on Monday afternoon to finish it up. We hope to open the play area up early next week. We would love to have any volunteers to help on either day. The Rotary Club will be there to feed us. 😊
The new playground at Children’s Park on Edith Avenue is scheduled to arrive and start installation on June 15th; it should be completed the following week. Following the installation completion, the City will be working with the County’s AB 109 Crew to install the wood fiber.
