Indio Senior Center Offers Blood Pressure Classes and Unveils New Blood Pressure Kiosk

The Indio Senior Center, in partnership with the American Heart Association (AHA) and Desert Oasis Healthcare, began offering a series of blood pressure classes in September 2019 to educate residents on how to improve their heart health as part of the “Desert Communities: Life is Why” initiative. The AHA also unveiled a new blood pressure kiosk at the Indio Senior Center to allow members to check their blood pressure on a regular basis outside of the doctor’s office. The kiosk is free to use and is a great way to monitor blood pressure in a relaxing setting, and offers tips on how to lower high blood pressure risk. High blood pressure is known as the "silent killer" because there are no obvious warning signs and if left uncontrolled it can lead to heart attack, stroke, heart failure and other serious life threats.

The remaining classes will be held from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m., in both English and Spanish, on the following dates:

  • Control Your Blood Pressure - October 21, 2019
  • Eating Smart with Fruits & Vegetables - November 18, 2019
  • Salt & Cardiovascular Risk - December 16, 2019

To join the Indio Senior Center or for more information, visit Indio.org/SeniorCenter or call 760-391-4170.

Indio Begins Citywide Road Improvement Projects

The City of Indio began laying new asphalt on major roads and residential streets throughout the City on Monday, September 30, 2019. The work will continue through Monday, December 23, 2019, and will occur between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Residents and motorists should expect travel delays, are urged to use alternate routes, and should observe all construction signs and obey road crews.

The project is part of the City’s street maintenance program to restore the appearance of the street pavement while extending its service life and minimizing further deterioration. The work involves grinding the top surface of the street and overlaying it with new asphalt as well as slurry sealing, which is a mixture of asphalt and fine aggregate to repair cracks and surface defects on roads. Some streets will also include the repairs of curbs, gutters, sidewalks, ramps and driveways.

INDIO, CA (September 26, 2019) – The City of Indio will lay new asphalt on major roads and residential streets throughout the City from Monday, September 30 to Monday, December 23, 2019.

Residents and motorists should expect travel delays, are urged to use alternate routes, and should observe all construction signs and obey road crews. Access for emergency vehicles will be unaffected.

The project is part of the City’s street maintenance program to restore the appearance of the street pavement while extending its service life and minimizing further deterioration. The work involves grinding the top surface of the street and overlaying it with new asphalt as well as slurry sealing, which is a mixture of asphalt and fine aggregate to repair cracks and surface defects on roads.

The total cost for the project is $3.4 million and is funded by Measure X, which was a voter-approved 1% sales tax increase measure passed by Indio voters in 2016 for infrastructure improvements and public safety. The City was able to secure $420,000 in funding through the federal Community Development Block Grant Program to cover the cost of road improvements in the Sun Gold neighborhood.
