West Palm Beach and residents team up on 'grass roots' project

One of West Palm Beach's oldest neighborhoods is getting a makeover, thanks to a partnership between residents and the city.

The streets of El Cid, the neighborhood located east of Dixie Highway near Belvedere Road, have received dozens of new trees in an effort to recapture the look and feel of the trees that historically lined the roadways.

The neighborhood association raised 20-thousand dollars to pay for the new landscaping; the city contributed nearly eight-thousand more.
