Board of Police Commissioner Norman Roldan and School Committee member Joesiah Gonzalez were also in attendance.
The Neighborhood Improvement Project will construct concrete sidewalks, driveways and wheelchair ramps in the North End, South End and Indian Orchard. The project will also include construction of a curb extension to create additional on-street parking and associated thermoplastic pavement markings.
Mayor Sarno states, “My administration is proud to support these quality of life neighborhood infrastructure projects in our North End, South End and Indian Orchard neighborhoods. The installation of new sidewalks is important for our residents and our local businesses – including Medinas Market right here in our North End. I want to thank City Councilor Maria Perez and our New North Citizens Council, especially Executive Director Maria Ligus and COO Jose Claudio, for their efforts and for working with my administration to get this project done.”
Councilor Maria Perez stated, “I want to thank Mayor Sarno, CDO Tim Sheehan, DPW Director Chris Cignoli and the dedicated city team for advancing this neighborhood project for our residents. The installation of new sidewalks and the many other neighborhood improvements the city has supported and completed, not only in the North End but across the city, is a testament to the city’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life for our residents and businesses.”
The project is funded through APRA and CDBG.
