UPDATE: By the beginning of this month, all three precincts had completed installation of streetlights in the 13 colonias. We are celebrating these victories along with colonia residents. For pics from these celebrations, visit our facebook page.
This month, Precinct 3 is taking the important first step down the enlightened path toward justice for colonia residents. Starting January 23rd, colonia residents will see the first round of streetlights installed in five colonias, starting with colonia Pueblo de Palmas.
LUPE residents worked with Precinct 3 Chief Administrator Dr. Mona Parra on the plan to install solar-powered streetlights in the five colonias north of Alton, including Pueblo de Palmas, Buena Vida, Mi Sueño, La Homa Meadows, and El Flaco. Precinct 3 found funds to purchase the lights via a federal grant and amended the county budget to pay for their installation.
