Adding a Mercado is one idea that could help revamp Avondale’s historic Old Town area, according to a city plan.
More townhomes, restaurants, splash pads, parks and murals. That’s part of the plan to make south Avondale a hotspot destination within five years.
The $6.3 million plan seeks to revamp three historic parts of the city with high-density housing options, neighborhood “beautification” efforts, space for recreation and a walkable downtown that offers shops, restaurants and entertainment options.
The goal is to make Avondale an entertainment hub for all Valley residents.
