The Twentynine Palms City Council will hold a ribbon cutting tomorrow afternoon at 5:30 p.m. midway down National Park Drive, on the center median across from the Old Schoolhouse Museum. The ribbon cutting will celebrate completion of the National Park Drive improvement project, which consists of new curbs, gutters, and sidewalks, road surface repaving, and median work. A highlight of the improvement project is a new sculpture by acclaimed artist Ricardo Breceda of Temecula, a life-size metal sculpture of a prospector and his burro, a historical piece that honors the gold mining heritage of the 1870s to early 1900s. Breceda also created the sculptures on the north end of National Park Drive. The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held prior to the regularly scheduled City Council meeting, which is expected to begin at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall, when council members arrive back in Council Chambers from the site.
