The La Mesa Village Association has been working to develop a Downtown La Mesa District Sign to become a beautiful new focal point in our Village community, and would be located above La Mesa Blvd. and Palm Ave.! The sign will feature the Downtown La Mesa Village name, plus "Jewel of the Hills" tagline. The sign will also be back lit with LED lights to make it shine at night! The supporting columns will be a work of art, literally, where the community will be able to buy & paint tiles to be placed on the columns for generations to admire! We will also have brass plaques available around the top perimeter of each column. The District Sign will truly be a community project for all to enjoy! See below for additional info on how you can participate in the tile & plaque fundraising.
We want to hear from YOU! The LMVA is hosting several community forums in the coming weeks to discuss the project with you, our La Mesa residents and the business community, in order to receive your feedback on the design!
