EL CENTRO — COVID-19 has not stopped work on the $2.3 million Carlos Aguilar Park Project, although it has slowed it down.

The renovation project began in March around the same time the COVID-19 pandemic began, and the crisis has played a role in pushing the project past its original June completion date.
