If you happen to be in the downtown historic district in the next several months, you’ll notice the street work being done along North RR in the 100 blocks of East and West Main. This is a collaborative project funded by the City of Cuero and the Cuero Development Corporation which surfaced in 2012-2013 Cuero strategic plan discussions. The project, Backdoor Beautification, includes replacement of the sewer lines and gas lines followed by construction of curbs, sidewalks, new historic lighting, and finally new paving of streets and the parking lots which will be landscaped. The project is expected to take 6 months, weather permitting!
Enjoy the beautiful wildflowers throughout our area particularly in DeWitt County. Pick up the newly revised tour map at the Cuero Chamber of Commerce, 210 E. Main, and find out the several routes and events happening as recognized in the DeWitt County Staycation brochure!
