News and Announcements

The City of La Feria held a Ground Breaking Ceremony on August 15, 2014 at 10:00 A.M. for the two Safe Rooms (Domes) that will be built in La Feria.  The ceremony was held at the site of the Pancho Maples Drive location with a presentation of the dome building process featured at the theater room of the La Feria Recreation Center located east of the dome site.  Refreshments were served and entertainment was provided by the El Mariachi Mundial.

This project, funded through grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and local matching funds from the City of La Feria, consists of constructing two safe rooms (domes) to be used during a hurricane or tornado.  They will be built to withstand severe weather conditions.  The dome to be constructed at 1001 Pancho Maples Drive will be a 15,000 sq. ft. facility at a total cost of $2,459,500.00.  This facility will also be used as a wellness center when not being used as a safe room.   The dome to be constructed at FM 506 and Dodd Lane will be a 20,000 sq. ft. facility at a total cost of $2,983,895.00 and will also be used as a multi-purpose facility.  The total grant funds for both facilities are $4,082,546.00 and the local match is $1,360,849.00.  Both domes are expected to be completed by August 2015.

Note:  The Main Street facility will be expanded with another building to facilitate the Technology and Success Center through another funding source and will be completed at a later time.
