Needles City Council Voted In Favor of Moving Forward.

Needles, CA: At last Tuesday’s Needles City Council Meeting, the City Council discuss if the City Council should approve some Community Enhancement Projects for the City of Needles.

Western Regional Consulting Elaine Cullen as well as the City of Needles are working together to get Needles moving forward and bring new businesses, events, and jobs to the Needles area.

If it’s bringing new retails and restaurants that would bring new job opportunities to those living in Needles such as a new dollar store to possibly to be built along Needles Highway across from the old Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant, marketing Needles to bring new events into the Needles area and enjoy what Needles has to offer, or planning community events such as a volunteer event that would bring the community together to sign up people interested in volunteering in events that help clean and fix Needles; the Needles City Council wants to see Needles succeed.

After discussing the item, the Needles City Council voted 6 to 0 in favor of the Community Enhancement Projects.

Many in the community hope that these projects will get Needles driving again and bring more people to Needles; for both business or for fun.
