MENDOTA – Today, October 10th, Assemblywoman Soria presented the City of Mendota with an $8 million check for the construction of a new community center.
This funding is part of a total of $140 million in state investments Assemblywoman Soria secured for the constituents of Assembly District 27.
The $8 million in funding will allow the City of Mendota to move forward with plans to build the first community center in the city’s history. This community center will be accessible to all constituents and aims to serve as a hub for emergency services and recreation. The project will also create a new, long-term resource for the community to access ongoing programs like educational, employment, and workforce development support.
“The residents of Mendota lack a community center to gather, access resources and serve as a central meeting location during an emergency,” said Assemblywoman Soria. “With this $8 million in funding from the state, the community will finally have a central place to meet for recreation and other services.
“Today is a very special day for the community of Mendota,” said Victor Martinez, Mayor of Mendota, “this is history for the community because this is the single biggest investment. This community center will serve as a much-needed senior center and resources center. We are very thankful”
The project is projected to be completed in 2026.
