Stockton awarded $568,000 for March Lane improvements

STOCKTON - The City of Stockton was awarded over $568,000 in grant funds for landscaping improvements for a 3-acre bike and pedestrian trail along March Lane from Pershing Avenue to Precissi Lane, south of Delta College.

Improvements will include street trees, turf, shrubs and an educational garden with information for city residents about plants that thrive in the valley climate.

"I am proud of this project," said Councilwoman Diana Lowery, who was apart of the planning process for improving the March Lane corridor. "It is an excellent example of the city, community partners and the state working in concert."

The funds, awarded in December, were made available by Proposition 84 and are administered by the state's Strategic Growth Council.
