I am pleased to announce that after many years of waiting, the City accepted possession of the Desiderio property from the Federal Government. The City is working on the EIR (Environmental Impact Report) as it plans to demolish the buildings. This process should take about a year. Funding is in place to move forward with the development of the open place. This project will expand the City’s open space, make one of the most beautiful vistas of the Colorado Bridge accessible to all, and add affordable housing under Habitat for Humanity for many families.
