The Casa de Oro Alliance is accepting donations to support a new project to decorate utility boxes along the Campo Road commercial corridor. A utility box recently wrapped by professional photographer Lee Sie seen on the northeast corner of Conrad Street and Campo Road, near the AutoZone, is the non-profit charity’s latest beautification effort.
Deploying a beautiful succulent design, printed on a sturdy UV-protected vinyl, Sie’s installation was sponsored by local resident, Joan Forbes. Alliance members are eager to cover at least six more Campo Road utility boxes with various designs. For example, Spring Valley Academy art students, working with teacher Jack White, will paint their own “wrap” design to be installed by Sie. The Bancroft Ranch House, a local landmark, could be honored as the subject of another utility box graphic.
The Casa de Oro Alliance is accepting community donations to wrap six more boxes. The project budget is $6,000 and all donations received beyond the actual project costs will be used to fund future Campo Road beautification efforts.
Give our main drag the pizzazz it deserves. Your tax-deductible donation, of any size, will make a visible improvement to Casa de Oro.
