A Message from Bob Yarris, Casa de Oro Alliance President
The $23 million library project is in final negotiations with all parties. I am more optimistic today than I was six months ago that the library and the Field of Dreams will become a reality for Casa de Oro.
Construction of the long-awaited curb and sidewalk on Kenwood Drive to Campo Road was scheduled to begin this month, but has been delayed due to Covid-19 emergency measures.
Small trash containers along Campo Road have been replaced with new, larger covered containers.
Board Members walked with Metropolitan Transit Service representatives along Campo Road in February and completed a bus bench survey which resulted in the approval of new, covered benches and updated bus route signs along Campo Road. Check out this post for more information.
President, Casa de Oro Alliance
The Economic Development Committee will be distributing information packets and conducting a survey of all Casa de Oro businesses when the quarantine is lifted. Results of this survey will be shared at upcoming General Assembly meetings and may be viewed on our website when completed.
We continue to work with the Sheriff’s Department and county agencies to address problems associated with homelessness and illegal marijuana outlets in our community. Please know that we share your concerns and frustration with these challenging issues and remain committed to finding solutions.
A special thank you to our community volunteers (especially our students) who have given up their Saturday mornings once a month to pick up trash along Campo Road. A huge thank you, also, to our passionate and dedicated Board of Directors for their continued hard work and commitment to our goals and mission.
I hope this newsletter finds everyone in good health. Remember, we’re all in this together. Take good care.
