The City of Clovis will hold two public meetings one at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 at the Ingram Room, Clovis-Carver Library, 701 Main Street, Clovis and the other at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, August 19th, 2015 at the Assembly Room, Clovis City Hall, 321 N. Connelly, Clovis to discuss major projects/purchases that should be included on the City’s Infrastructure and Capital Improvement Plan (ICIP). Residents of Clovis are invited to attend and provide input on projects they believe should be included.
The ICIP is a document that is revised each year to show major projects the City hopes to accomplish within the next five years. A “major” project is defined as one that exceeds $15,000 and is a one-time cost. Projects must also fall under the responsibility of local government and not be related to private business.
Municipalities and counties all over New Mexico submit their ICIPs to the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration each year, and state legislators use these documents to decide which projects will receive state capital outlay funding in subsequent years.
Should you have any questions or comments regarding this meeting, please contact the City Manager’s Office at 575-769-7828.
Maria Beene and Eugene Vigil with the Department of Health-Developmental Disabilities Support Division in the Southeast Region based in Roswell have been facilitating a wonderful partnership between ENMRSH a committed and dedicated provider agency that helps support Individuals with Developmental Disabilities, talented local artist Ms. Patsy Delk with the Clovis Parks, Recreation & Beautification Committee the Clovis Municipal Zoo, and the true stars of the project the individuals that participated from ENMRSH.
The Clovis Zoo Legacy Project has reached completion and will be unveiled at the Clovis Zoo on August 14, 2015 at 10:00 am. We invite you to share in this wonderful event and support the local Clovis community and community members.
This project started with an idea and a lot of collaboration, patience, creativity, and most of all passion by all involved. The participants were “not” chosen but made their own choice if they would like to participate. The individuals who participated came into this project with enthusiasm and a love of art and the excitement to be a part of something that will contribute to the Clovis community in which they love. This project is also a way to influence others in the community as well as promote positive community awareness about individuals with developmental disabilities. It was a great opportunity for the participants to just have fun in an art project that was meaningful to them. The project consists of two large trees with extended branches and various sized plates that are added to the branches that were individually painted and decorated by the participants. This piece is hung on the wall of the Clovis Zoo for all to see and enjoy. The project is suitably named “Trees of Tolerance” and includes a quote which states: “All things share the same breath – the beast, the tree, the man…the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.”
Roadwork will be ongoing on Thornton Street & 21st Street from July 27th – 30th, 2015 and at the intersection of 14th Street and Thornton Street on July 30th and 31st, 2015. For more information or if you have any questions please contact the Public Works Department at (575) 769-2376.
The City of Clovis would like to advise area residents that they may access businesses located on the south side of Mabry Drive by turning south on Oak Street off of Mabry and east or west on Santa Fe Avenue, while roadwork is being completed on the south side of Mabry. K. Barnett & Sons are placing signage to indicate the access route to these businesses.
Roadwork has not started on the north side of Mabry Drive and businesses located there may be accessed in the usual way.
“We would like to encourage area residents to continue to visit the businesses located on Mabry Drive and let the public know these areas can still be easily accessed during the road construction,” advised Commissioner Chris Bryant, Wednesday.
