City Council Approves Plaza de Panama Project Financing Plan
This week the city council voted to approve the financing plan for the Spreckles Organ Pavilion public parking garage. This was an important step required to move the Plaza de Panama project into construction phase. At the city council meeting, Councilmember Todd Gloria noted, “this is a necessary step to fulfill the obligation this council entered into when it approved the project, and it represents the city’s contribution to the overall project.” The Plaza de Panama Committee is grateful to the city council for its continued support, and to all of the city staff members who worked on putting the plan together in such a timely manner.

Event attendees will be treated to a mayoral debate between the candidates, live music by The Blonde Brothers, Kid Zone complete with mini-voter booths, Stone Brewing Co. beer garden and dozens of community booths. Updated project fact sheets and information will be provided at our informational booth. We hope to see you there!
