CALEXICO — Residents of the Victoria Estates subdivision on Wednesday called for additional basketball courts to be included in the city’s proposed conceptual plan for Cordova Park improvements.

The residents’ requests came during a public hearing organized by the city in preparation of its plan to soon apply for state grants to potentially fund such park improvements.
