San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved grants of $42,500 to the Lakeside Chamber of Commerce for the archway sign across Maine Avenue, $30,000 to the La Mesa Arts Foundation for the sound system at the La Mesa Arts Academy’s auditorium and Blackbox Theater, and $5,000 to the Jamacha United Support Team for the outdoor fitness circuit at Jamacha Elementary School.

San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved grants of $42,500 to the Lakeside Chamber of Commerce for the archway sign across Maine Avenue, $30,000 to the La Mesa Arts Foundation for the sound system at the La Mesa Arts Academy’s auditorium and Blackbox Theater, and $5,000 to the Jamacha United Support Team for the outdoor fitness circuit at Jamacha Elementary School.

NRP is intended to provide grants for the furtherance of public purposes at the regional and community levels. Supervisor Dianne Jacob recommended the District Two NRP funds for the Lakeside archway sign, the La Mesa Arts Academy, and the Jamacha Elementary School fitness circuit.

The Lakeside Chamber of Commerce believes that an archway sign across Maine Avenue will enhance civic pride and unity among Lakeside residents while also providing the community with a central location to promote and share community events. The NRP grant will provide partial funding to purchase materials, pay for permit and site plan costs, and construct the sign.

La Mesa Arts Academy is a La Mesa-Spring Valley School District program and the La Mesa Arts Foundation was founded in 2014 to support that endeavor. An upgraded sound system at the auditorium and Blackbox Theater will improve the sound production for dance, music, and theater performances, rehearsals, and lessons.

Jamacha Elementary School students benefit from the Jamacha United Support Team founded to enhance the education and health of the students. The NRP allocation will provide partial funding to construct the outdoor fitness circuit providing students, staff, parents, and the community with opportunities for exercise and will also be used in cross-curriculum learning.
