University of the Pacific and City of Stockton team up to beautify the Miracle Mile

Sep 24, 2012

University of the Pacific and Stockton city officials will gather Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 2 p.m., on President's Drive to kick off a Pacific Avenue/Miracle Mile beautification construction project. It's a good example of University and city officials joining forces to beautify one of Stockton's most cherished neighborhoods. Median improvements will provide manicured and branded entrances at both ends of Pacific Avenue near the University.

"The University is deeply committed to collaborative efforts that aim to advance the economic and social well-being of our regional community," President Pamela Eibeck said. "We believe that these locations serve as key gateways to the University and Miracle Mile neighborhoods and that to enhance them will help develop an atmosphere of safety and vitality that is critical to the quality of life both on and off campus."

The joint infrastructure project will be paid for with University funds, as well as local and federal dollars.

The projects are located along Pacific's Miracle Mile/Pacific Avenue between Harding Way and Elm Street and from Fulton Street to the Calaveras River. The kickoff will be on President's Drive behind Morris Chapel.
