The Balboa entrance at Route 5 got an updated new look in 2015. This entrance happened to also be our Club’s first project which was completed in 1992. We prepared a new planting plan this year that retained many of the original trees and shrubs. Our members to enhance the overall look of this important Village entrance pruned the remaining existing plants, weeded the islands, brought in new soil, planted new shrubs, and mulched the plant beds. The Club funded the new plants at $2,256 and provided 178 man-hours to install these improvements. The Club has and continues to maintain these Balboa Gate plantings.
