The Fallbrook Beautification Alliance is a non-profit volunteer organization working with community partners to enhance Fallbrook’s visual appeal. Many of Fallbrook’s beautification projects are initiated and maintained by community organizations such as the Fallbrook Beautification Alliance (FBA). FBA was founded in 2005 as a result of a recommendation from the Fallbrook Revitalization Council to improve collaboration between groups and individuals dedicated to making and keeping Fallbrook beautiful.
Join the Keep Fallbrook Clean and Green Annual Clean-Up Day
Keep Fallbrook Clean and Green, a division of the Fallbrook Beautification Alliance, has scheduled their annual community-wide Clean Up Day for Saturday, Sept. 19, in conjunction with the statewide California Coastal Cleanup Day and International Coastal Cleanup held by I Love a Clean San Diego, and the California Coastal Commission.
In San Diego County alone, the event brings together roughly 7,500 volunteers, local businesses, community organizations and government agencies, all working towards the same goal: a cleaner and healthier county. Locally, Fallbrook residents will have an opportunity to participate in cleanup activities organized at two Fallbrook locations, picking up litter on neighborhood streets and roadways. Roadside debris is often the result of deliberate or accidental actions by people. Improperly covered trash bins, litter, debris left in streets and parks, and items thrown from cars or uncovered truck beds, all end up along our roadways, impacting the beauty and health of Fallbrook, and which may also travel through storm drains, before landing on our shorelines or settling in the ocean.
Volunteers should register in advance at: www.cleanupday.org to select one of the two Fallbrook Clean Up sites listed under Zone 2 North County Inland. The two locations are: Downtown Fallbrook (parking lot on Alvarado located between the Fallbrook Art Center and the Fallbrook Library), and the Live Oak Park (parking lot at 2746 Reche Road). On the day of the event, participants are to meet at 9 a.m. at their selected location, where they will be assigned a street to collect debris.
Bags, gloves and water will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to help reduce their use, by bringing along their own reusable bucket or burlap, gardening gloves, and reusable water bottle.
Come “Sea” What’s Swimming Along the Pico Promenade
The Fallbrook Beautification Alliance (FBA), with the help of Save Our Forest, maintains the walking path along the Pico Promenade in downtown Fallbrook. The benches that line the path, providing a shady spot for rest or reflection, were in need of a major makeover or replacement. Earlier this year, a suggestion was made to enlist the help of student artists, and that is how this art story began. The idea took hold with multiple goals in mind: to help young people be more involved in a positive way with the community, bring some youthful art to Fallbrook, and to remake the benches to enhance the Pico Promenade walking path.
