What Is All the Building in Frazier?

Those who enjoyed the grand opening of the Crazy Duck Chinese Restaurant in Frazier Park on July 20 noticed there are many other building projects underway in town this month, both private and public. For instance, Koko’s motel addition on Mt. Pinos Way and San Carlos Trail is nearing completion. Those same roads have been torn up while Frazier Park Public Utility District’s water pipe improvements were installed, thanks to a federal loan/grant. Now the pipes are in the ground, so new sidewalks and curbs are being extended from the streetscape beautification area near Pomona Trail all the way to Frazier Park School. That is also being paid for with federal funds, allocated by the county.

And now new classrooms are finally being built at the school. El Tejon Unified School District trustees heard an update on that property-tax funded project last week [see story].

Over in Frazier Mountain Park, Kern County Roads Engineer Mark Evans toured with an arborist to check whether oak trees are being protected where pathways are about to be built by the county, again with a federal grant.

Tilton Pacific Construction has its office and staging areas in the park during ongoing work for the new Kern County branch library being built on Park Drive. Tree fences have finally been installed to protect the town’s prized heritage Valley oaks from more damage.
