City Holds Ribbon Cutting to Celebrate Completion of Metrolink Parking Expansion and Passive Recreation Area Projects in Old Town Newhall

Mayor Laurie Ender and Councilmember Marsha McLean were on hand today as the City of Santa Clarita dedicated new expansion projects at the Community Center.

The City received $950,000 in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant funds to add 95 additional spaces to the Newhall Metrolink parking lot which represents a 42 percent increase in parking.

Ray Tellis of the U.S. Department of Transportation talked about how  the parking expansion was a good example of ARRA funded projects adding jobs to communities.

Additionally, the City was able to development a new half-acre passive recreation area behind the Community Center. The new half-acre passive recreation area includes benches, picnic tables, new landscaping, walkways and irrigated planting areas.  The passive recreation area was funded by Quimby funds.
