The Clean California Local Grant Program prioritizes grant funding towards projects that enhance communities and improve spaces for walking and recreation. Gilroy’s project includes the renovation and beautification of Gourmet Alley and Railroad Street within the downtown area, renovating these spaces into pedestrian and bicycle-friendly pathways through infrastructure and aesthetic improvements. Also included in the project is a “Keep Gilroy Clean” anti-littering campaign.

“The City of Gilroy is pleased to receive this grant award. Out of 329 applications that were submitted, only 105 projects were awarded, and we’re lucky enough to be one of them,” said Gilroy Mayor Marie Blankley. “We’re very excited about the opportunity to make some significant improvements to the downtown and to see the plans for Gourmet Alley come to life.” 

Gilroy’s Historic Downtown has long been known for its historic charm and local dining and shopping. The City of Gilroy has long recognized that the downtown provides unique spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy and looks forward to creating new spaces and vibrancy to be shared by all.
