Originally slated to break ground in October, the new sidewalks in Meiners Oaks are finally being installed. The demolition phase is now under way for the 5-foot-wide sidewalks on the south side of El Roblar Drive between Lomita and La Luna avenues; they are expected to be complete by the end of April.
“Everyone is excited, and residents are being very cooperative,” said Alison Sweet, project manager with the County of Ventura.
