Have you noticed the beautiful utility box wraps along Campo Road? With the help of some wonderful donors, and the talent of photographer Lee Sie, we can brag that we have finished SEVEN boxes with the beautiful names of Upsy Daisy (donated through donations to the Alliance GoFundMe campaign), Aeoniums (Joan Forbes), Lush Lantana, Lipstick Hibiscus (Bob and Holly Yarris), Agave Gold (Dr. Curtis Howard, DDS), Breath of Heaven (CDOA GoFundMe campaign), and California Dream (Vince and Wanetta Sherrod and Lyn Earl). We are very grateful to photographer Lee Sie, our consummate artist and wrapper. Things are lookin’ up!
Be on the look out for new banners hanging from the light posts along Campo Road! These will be changed out seasonally. We also have new potted trees and succulents: this was a 2-day project that took the effort of many volunteers….a huge thank you to everyone involved! If you would like to adopt some planters to care for, please send us an email
- Utility boxes near the Pho & Grill/Grecian Cafe on Conrad Drive (Design by Jack White, SV Academy art teacher and students; photographed by See Lie)
- Welcome to Casa de Oro sign (historical panorama with photos of Spring Valley; produced by Lee Sie; paid in part by Chris Hagan, Sonya Heiserman, and Mike Herron)
- Boxes near “Poppies” in front of San Diego County Credit Union kiosk, and three more traffic light boxes—at North Granada, Casa de Oro Blvd and Agua Dulce Blvd.
To donate to the utility box decoration project, this link will take you to our PayPal donation page for a Historical Spring Valley-themed box, and this link is for a utility box that will be decorated with art from Spring Valley Academy students.
You can also donate to a general fund for all the boxes. Just think how wonderful Campo Road will look once we finish; something which YOUR generosity made happen! Our undiscovered Casa de Oro gem in East County is slowly being transformed thanks to the Beautification Committee of the Casa de Oro Alliance.
