City of Yuma and consultants want input from residents about new project developments downtown


YUMA, Ariz. (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 residents.

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 project's plans.

"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.
