Update on Reata Park and Event Center

What’s the latest on Reata Park and Event Center?  Here’s an update from San Juan’s City Manager:

Decomposed granite for the trails in the southerly and easterly portion of the site has been installed. Concrete pours for trash enclosures, concrete pads, and other miscellaneous items are in progress. Grading is complete at the westerly portion of the site where the equestrian staging area is located, and construction of the ADA horse access ramp has begun. Installation of the irrigation system and miscellaneous utility work continues, with citrus tree planting between the drive aisle areas started.
