From the College Area Business District--

Hello College Area Residents:


The College Area Business District is coordinating a Clean-Up on Saturday, August 29, 2015 from 8:00am – 12:00pm. We are asking for volunteers to bring their shovels, rakes and hoes to the vacant lot located at 6505 El Cajon Boulevard (on the corner of Filipo Street and El Cajon Boulevard). We will be  removing debris and weeds from the lot and transplanting some of the vegetation that currently is on the lot to small areas of new landscaping.

This is an opportunity for you and your neighbors to have fun and do something positive for the aesthetics of the neighborhood. The College Area Business District has the approval of the out-of-town property owner for this project and we have secured a 40 yard dumpster from Republic Services with the Dump Fees waived by City Council Member Marti Emerald. Additionally West Coast Arborists has agreed to trim the palm trees on the property. With your help in spreading the word, we now need volunteers from your group to sign up, show up and help out with the needed manpower. We are asking volunteers to bring shovels, rakes and hoes (or similar yard tools) and have some fun by getting together with other concerned neighbors in making a difference for the College Area.

Local neighbors can clean out their garages, yards and homes of any unwanted large items to be brought to the site and discarded into the dumpster for FREE haul away. You will have to bring these items to the site.

***NO Electronics, Appliances, Hazardous Waste (paints, oils, solvents, chemicals, gas, pesticides, toxics) or Tires will be accepted.***

The College Area Business District will provide coffee, water and light snacks on-site for the volunteers and we are in the process of coordinating lunch to thank you all for your hard work.
