City of Yuma and consultants want input from residents about new project developments downtown
Story by 13 On Your Side Newsroom
(13 On Your Side) – Consultants who are partnering with the City of Yuma to revamp unused
properties downtown were in town today.
They set out to talk to people who
the project will affect the most: Yuma
Whether you work, live, play or just
occasionally stroll through Main
Street in downtown Yuma—the City wants your input so they can
make the best use of a $400,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.
That's why today, they invited
Yumans to take a tour through the empty area to spark interests and ideas about
what should become of it.
Representatives of companies
involved in the project also met with Yumans at City Hall to talk about the
"The fact is that these folks we're
looking for ideas from, they live, work and play here every single day. So
their ideas are the most important to us," said Scott Wilson, the Vice
President of Environmental Engineering with Ayres Associates.
This public outreach is only the
beginning of the downtown Yuma project, which
the City hopes will bring more businesses to thrive in historic downtown Yuma.
