Construction Underway at Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens
Permeable pavers installed at Alice Keck Park Memorial GardensInstallation of permeable pavers at Plaza de Vera Cruz has been completed, and our contractor has moved on to Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens.
The sidewalks surrounding the park are being removed and replaced with permeable pavers, which allow storm water and urban runoff to soak into the ground below the pavers rather than running offsite. 
Next summer, permeable pavers will also be installed in the sidewalks and street in the 700 and 800 blocks of N. Quarantina Street.
Funding for these projects has been provided primarily through a grant agreement with the State Water Resources Control Board, and by hotel visitors through Measure B.
