Congressman Salud Carbajal (CA-24) and Lompoc Mayor Jenelle Osborne toured examples of how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) is providing funding for infrastructure upgrades and transit operations in the City of Lompoc, and discussed how these programs will raise the quality of life for Lompoc residents.
Since the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law was signed at the end of 2021, over $11,000,000 has been allocated to fund projects and support operations in Lompoc.
“You might be driving on a road, flying out of an airport, or taking a bus that is being funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and not even know it.” said Rep. Carbajal. “The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is delivering investments all across the region that are vital to the functioning of our communities, and these Lompoc taxpayer dollars coming back to Lompoc are just a few of the many ways this landmark law is helping improve the day-to-day life of our Central Coast residents.”
“The federal funds that Congressman Carbajal has supported and appropriated for the city of Lompoc have been a game changer for our community,” said Mayor Osborne. “We have invested in public safety equipment, park renovations, and infrastructure that not only improve the quality of life and safety for all our residents, but the funds are also creating additional jobs and economic development. By working together across all levels of government, the city is investing in long overdue projects and looking for additional partnerships to build on these achievements. Thank you, Congressman Carbajal, for the ongoing support of Lompoc.”
Rep. Carbajal and Mayor Osborne were joined on their tour of infrastructure stops by City Manager Dean Albro, Public Works Director Michael Luther, and Aviation Transportation Administrator Richard Fernbaugh.
Funding provided through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which was championed in Congress by Rep. Carbajal through his role on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, delivered over $9.5 million for renovations and repairs at Lompoc Airport and $1.7 million to support transit operations at City of Lompoc Transit.
The City is also receiving funding through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program, a grant program funded in part by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, to upgrade the energy efficiency of the city’s electrical grid.
Rep. Carbajal recently noted a milestone of $500,000,000 in federal funding that has already been delivered by the landmark law for nearly 100 projects across the Central Coast to support upgrades to airports, transit systems, climate resilient initiatives, and high-speed broadband connectivity.
