State budget includes $350K for Gilroy crosswalk construction

The City of Gilroy will receive $350,000 from the recently adopted state budget that will fund a new crosswalk in front of the Monterey Gateway Senior Apartments at 6500 Monterey Road.

The project, which is outlined in the city’s Capital Improvement Program, includes adding a “High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk,” where pedestrians can activate a stop light for road traffic to allow them to cross Monterey Road. The project will also construct curb ramps.

The funds for Gilroy were among the more than $20 million secured for projects in Senator John Laird’s district.

“While California faces another difficult budget year, it is heartening to be able to secure funding for numerous important projects that will assist in securing and improving our quality of life,” Laird said. “Senior assistance, homeless services, disaster recovery, and climate change planning and mitigation are a few of the areas we are able to tackle throughout the Central Coast.”

San Ysidro Park cleanup event scheduled

The public is invited to help clean up San Ysidro Park, 7700 Murray Ave., on July 15 at 9am.

The cleanup is part of the City of Gilroy’s “Fight Dirty” campaign, which has included events at other areas around the city.

The city will provide trash bags and grabbers. Students looking to earn volunteer hours are advised to bring their paperwork.
