SAN DIEGO -- Community groups, local businesses and city leaders unveiled six new bronze plaques in Mission Hills, replacing century-old neighborhood markers that were stolen in July and August 2011.
With a focus on neighborhood pride, Councilmember Kevin Faulconer joined Mission Hills Heritage, Chism Brothers Painting and representatives from the Mission Hills Town Council and Mission Hills Business Improvement District for the official unveiling March 20.
“It’s about community character,” Faulconer said. “It’s about what’s special in San Diego, and particularly here in Mission Hills. Our residents and our neighbors here love this community.”
Held at the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Alameda Drive, the ceremony focused on the Inspiration Heights pillars and plaques that were of the last damaged in the 2011 crime spree. Over 20 bronze plaques marking historical buildings and sub-neighborhoods throughout Mission Hills were stolen.
