In August, the City of Ceres unveiled plans to revitalize two downtown blocks along Fourth Street. The conceptual plans show moving trees out into the street enabling 10-foot-wide sidewalks and allowing for outdoor café dining. Trees - possibly palm trees - would be planted nine feet out from the existing curb. The two existing Fourth Street roundabouts will be removed and artistically designed arches will define the two main entrances leading into the downtown district. A portion of the $2-2.5 million project will be paid for from proceeds of the bonds sold by the now defunct Ceres Redevelopment Agency. To view this and other elements of the plan, visit the Ceres Chamber of Commerce at 2904 4th Street.
