Of the 120 homes included in the "Ruta del Color", 37 facades have already been painted. The 20 murals included in this federal project will be added two weeks after the facades are finished, representing some of the history of this unique, beautiful island. This will create a new tourism corridor along Paseo de las Aves in colonia La Gloria. The homeowners were allowed to chose the colors they preferred.

FRIDAY, Feb 3--
Unfortunately, a young motorcyclist lost his life early Thursday morning when his vehicle impacted a concrete electrical post on prolongacion Aeropuerto (Jesus Martinez Ross Ave) across from the airfield control tower. The victim had no vital signs when the Red Cross paramedics arrived, and the cause of the accident is unknown. Our condolences to their family and friends.
Thursday was World Wetland's Day when we're reminded to respect and take care of these ecosystems which are a source of life and habitat for many aquatic species.
