On Thursday, August 27, 2020, Cuero Development Corporation (CDC) board members and staff attended a dedication ceremony for an electric vehicle charging station in the Historic Downtown Area. The EV charging station is the newest addition of Phase Three of the ongoing Downtown Renovation Project which began in Fiscal Year 2018-2019.

The project includes improvements to parking lots, streets and sidewalks, grounds and landscaping, irrigation and drainage, and lighting in the 100 blocks of East and West Main Street. In December 2019, Cuero citizen and philanthropist Robert Oliver contributed to the project by donating a dozen trees around the newly paved parking area. Members of Keep Cuero Beautiful were also in attendance at the ceremony on Thursday to recognize the area with a sign for “Excellence in Landscaping”.

To date, the cost of the revitalization project is $643,857.75, with $325,000 in contributions plus an additional $100,000 pending final approval this month from the Cuero Development Corporation.
