The Port Isabel Capital Project Planning Committee met Tuesday to continue discussions regarding the prioritization of several capital improvement projects.
The committee agreed to a number of additional street improvement projects, and considered removing from their priority list a project aimed at improving the City’s park facilities and the Laguna Madre Youth Center (LMYC).
First up, the committee decided to amend a project to improve Lincoln Street in the recently annexed portion of Laguna Heights — a project they added to their priority list last week. The amendment would include add another $40,000 to the project cost for the installation of fire hydrants, making the total cost $440,000.
The committee next identified Windward Street on the eastern edge of town as a priority, estimating it would take approximately $97,000 to fix that street and cul-de-sac.
