The Honorable Mayor, Raul G. Salinas & Members of the Laredo City Council invite all Laredoans for the unveiling of the new walking track. District VIII residents can now enjoy a pleasant walk on the complete soft surface track around their local high school, elementary school, Veteran’s Field and the Civic Center while staying fit and enhance their health. This project was an investment of $235,800.00 thru Discretionary Funds and the 35th Action Year CDBG Funds.
This event takes place Thursday, September 8 at 10:00 a.m. I think that's so less people will show up and the city won't have to worry about offering refreshments or anything.
I got to ride on the new cushy track the other night when I took my bike out for a spin. The turf dragged a bit, but I'm sure runners and walkers will appreciate it. I'll have to resort to riding next to the cars.
