During this meeting, City Officials presented on the San Luis I Port of Entry Modernization Project and what is being projected by our counterparts in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora.
“It is an honor to represent the City of San Luis at BBBX in Washington, DC. We are excited to showcase the most recent federal investment for the San Luis I Port of Entry,” Stated Council Member and Greater Yuma Port Authority Chairman Matias Rosales. “By presenting, it allows us to bring forth a project that took collaboration from state partners, federal agencies, local municipalities, and their counterparts in Mexico,” he added. “While some feel that projects like these are impossible, let this soon-to-be new Port of Entry serve as an example that infrastructure projects are possible with hard work, time, and support from all stakeholders, we are proof that they are possible to obtain,” he concluded.
