As mentioned at last year’s meet-and-greet, one of the Association’s goals was to put up signs that read our neighborhood’s name at all entrances to our community. That goal was met today, as Elite Ironworks installed the signage on the rock walls on the corner of Russell Blvd. and Pete Domenici Hwy., Comerciantes and Megan St., and Comerciantes and Elizabeth St.
The next step will be for At-East Lawn Care to accent the signage with plants. For the time being, check out the newly installed signage below!
On Wednesday January 24, El Paso Electric began installing light poles at both Villa Valencia neighborhood parks. The project was supposed to be completed by the end of that day, but the crew encountered a few issues that extended the project to three work days. The work was officially completed on Monday January 29, and immediately, Villa Valencia homeowners took advantage of the new lighting to enjoy the parks a little later than usual, as described by homeowner Cristy Castillo-Diaz.
On Tuesday January 16, City Council voted against an ordinance that would have approved rezoning land from a residential district to a multi-family residential district. The plot of land is located on the corner of Russell Blvd. and Pete Domenici Hwy, which has long been eyed by developers for a luxury apartment complex.
Things are definitely looking brighter for Villa Valencia. El Paso Electric will begin installing lights at both parks starting January 24.
