Construction on both sites began in April, and on Wednesday, local officials including Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin, the Fresno Housing Authority, and the Lowell Community Development Corporation gathered with news crews and neighbors to commemorate the groundbreaking of the Lowell neighborhood revitalization. And, of course, Brown Construction was there to appreciate and honor what a significant impact this construction project will make on this underserved community.
