Welcome to July in Casa de Oro
Happy Belated 4th of July!
As we mark our democratic founding and independence as a country, the Casa de Oro Alliance invites you to celebrate and appreciate the rich independence we enjoy each and every day. Read below for a special invitation.
The Casa de Oro Alliance (CDOA) appreciates our independence to pursue our goals and vision to revitalize our community – we are working diligently to restore the health and safety of Casa de Oro.
Did you notice?
Sanitation is improving! With support from EDCO, Casa de Oro now has multiple large trash containers available to pedestrians.
The weeds are gone! Our beautification committee dawned their masks, pulled the weeds and picked up litter along Campo Road.
An illegal dispensary was shut down! Because of fast action by the Department of Public Works (and specifically Joe Valencia) in cooperation with the Rancho San Diego Sheriff’s Department, the infamous ‘tennis court dispensary’ was surrounded and closed.
We have new transportation stations! Thanks to MTS for replacing the old, unsafe, and unsightly bus benches, and replacing them with 12 brand new fixtures along Campo Road. Plus, within the next 45 days, several covered benches will be added in high-ridership areas.
You can be part of the ongoing success of our great community. On Thursday, July 16th at 6pm, the Casa de Oro Alliance is proud to present our July General Assembly as a live webinar. Guest speakers, Joe Valencia and Lt. Joel Strange, will answer questions related to crime and illegal dispensaries in our neighborhood. The Casa de Oro Alliance appreciates their hard work and dedication to the Casa de Oro community as well as their close collaboration and support of CDOA.
Also look for an update on the Casa de Oro Specific Plan being developed by San Diego County with grant funding from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and how you can get involved to shape our future..

Members of the Casa de Oro Alliance salute the health professionals, first-responders and others that continue to work during this difficult time. The definition of a patriot in today’s world has expanded from not only one with a focus on those serving in the military but includes those among us cultivating the health and life of our communities. We wish to recognize your service and extend a heartfelt thank you.
Several Alliance Board of Directors are spending their home-bound hours working on a community reinvestment grant application. Items for which funding will be requested include streetlight pole banners, planters, landscaping and other business corridor improvements. Using electronic communication methods enables important efforts to continue, even during this time of social distancing.
