SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Construction of the Verdugo Street Beautification Project continued the week of Jan. 23 with the installation of several “noticeable amenities,” according to a weekly update from the city manager on Jan. 23.
“The City’s contractor installed concrete brick pavers along the southerly sidewalk of Verdugo Street, and constructed footings for the new trellis and light poles in the plaza area,” the update said. “Planting pots were also installed, and a portion of the new southerly sidewalk was opened to pedestrians for access to the movie theater and adjacent businesses. It is anticipated that improvements to the northern sidewalk could begin in early February.”
