Mayor Joe E. Vega and the Port Isabel City Commission have invited the public to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the long anticipated new City of Port Isabel Visitor & Events Center and Emergency Operations Center.
The event will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 21, at the future site of the events center, located at 309 Railroad Avenue across from the Port Isabel Historical Museum (Champion Building).
The City of Port Isabel was successful in obtaining a low interest loan from the USDA Rural Development in the amount of $4 million, allowing for the new building of a visitor and event center and the emergency operations center. The Port Isabel City Commission contracted ERO Architects for the design, Fulcrum Consulting Services for engineering and Colair, Inc. as the general contractor.
