Statement from Mayor Alex Finter regarding WM Grace property at Southern Avenue and Alma School Road

       

          “In the first week of my service as Mayor, I reached out to the WM Grace Company to introduce myself, discuss the Grace property at Southern and Alma School, and present an update on all the great things happening in the Fiesta District.  The next week we held a very positive and productive meeting at the Grace Company headquarters.   During the meeting, we received encouraging news that changes to the corner are on the horizon.  Follow up conversations have provided us with descriptions of several possible revitalization proposals that may include employment, restaurants and other mixed use opportunities.  Additionally, we were informed of environmental testing currently being conducted on the site in preparation for future demolition and clearing of existing structures.  Although still early in the process, I am excited that we are getting ready to see big changes at that location.  I appreciate working with Mr. Howard Grace as we continue the renaissance of the Fiesta District.”
