Beautification project to offer welcoming entrance into North Park and City Heights

SAN DIEGO -- Thanks to the combined efforts of North Park Main Street (NPMS), the City Heights Business Association (CHBA) and one dedicated Uptown resident, a new and welcoming community beautification project is well underway.

The idea came approximately six months ago, when North Park resident and NPMS board member Steve Codraro was sitting in traffic at the corner of University and Wabash avenues, near the northbound I-805 exit ramp.

Codraro said that is when he noticed a small area, containing overgrown weeds and a cracked cinder-block wall, in major need of aesthetic improvement.

“This space caught my eye because it’s in a prominent area that leads into both North Park and City Heights,” Codraro said, who also owns a home development company.

“I thought, ‘This area should really be in better condition. It doesn’t reflect the greatness of the two communities.’”
