Quietly Behind the Scenes, IB Beautiful is Playing a Big Role in Beautification Underway in City of Imperial Beach Helping Fund Parks, Murals, and other Projects.
It's hard to drive through Imperial Beach and not see a part of the City that IB Beautiful hasn't touched. IB Beautiful is probably best known for the Imperial Beach Certified Farmer's Market it started in 2010. Every Friday afternoon in Pier Plaza you can find a wide variety of locally grown fresh produce, delicious ethnic foods, and artisans selling an array of arts and crafts. However, the last few years IB Beautiful has also been busy helping fund projects like the Peoples Art Park across the street from the Marriot on Seacoast Drive where along with the City of IB, the IB Arts Bureau and a lot of volunteers, IB Beautiful provided $10,000 for the project.
Currently, IB Beautiful is providing $8,000 in funding along with the City and AT&T for a beautiful mural going up on the AT&T building at Palm Avenue and 13th Street. It also provided $8,000 in funds for the turtle art mural created by Pangea on the wall of the Arco/SD Vapors Building on Palm Avenue and has several others selected or are being finalized for selection.
Besides making a big footprint on Palm Avenue and Seacoast Drive, IB Beautiful has been there when funds were needed for the Helicopter Park at 10th Street and Iris Avenue and other projects 4Walls International was working with the City on providing $20,000 in funding. IB Beautiful has also funded projects by the local Eagle Scouts.
Needless to say, IB Beautiful is playing a big role in some of the most exciting beautification projects going on inside our City
