Congressman Levin Secures Funding for Vista Projects
Congressman Mike Levin secured $2.231 million for a Sidewalk Improvement and Enhanced Street Lighting Project for the City of Vista. This project will fund the installation of frontage improvements that will enhance safety and improve multimodal transportation access along the south side of Nevada Avenue, from N. Santa Fe Avenue to Lemon Avenue, and east side of Lemon Avenue, from Nevada Avenue to Raintree Place.
Specific improvements include road widening and new curbs, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant corner ramps, restriping roads and crosswalks, and installing new lights. The City of Vista Sidewalk Improvement and Enhanced Street Lighting Project is a good use of taxpayer funds because it will ensure that pedestrians in the Townsite neighborhood have access to safe pedestrian facilities and improve lighting throughout the neighborhood for the benefit of residents and users of multiple modes of transportation.

Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention
The Oceanside Police Department recently arrested catalytic converter thieves. A recovered converter was linked to a victim who engraved their catalytic converter at a North County Ford engraving event last May. Because of this, detectives identified the victim. Engraving catalytic converters allows victims to be linked if stolen, resulting in stronger court cases.
