CentrePointe Site Cleanup
It was originally planned to be a mixed-use residential and commercial center, but when the economy took a downturn, everything came to a screeching halt.
For this north Rolando Village neighborhood, the nearly 9-acre site has been a point of aggravation for people who live and work in the area. It wasn’t only the piles of cement block and steel rebar which created this eyesore; Graffiti vandals hit on a regular basis and the cement islands with trees and bougainvillea were a haven for trespassers.
In mid-August, demolition crews began clearing the CentrePointe site at 63rd and El Cajon Boulevard, with the Douglas Wilson Companies footing the bill.
The property is now nearly clear of rubble which is great news for the neighborhood. And, at the request of Councilmember Marti Emerald, most of the debris is being recycled! The cement block and rebar is targeted for an Interstate-905 project and EDCO is taking the bougainvillea and other greenery for mulch. The trees will remain and improved fencing should help keep people off the property which will remain vacant for the time being.
