FBA continues efforts in 2022, adds a new project

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Beautification Alliance maintains and beautifies the community by initiating and maintaining projects to enhance Fallbrook's outdoor spaces. This year FBA continued to support various projects and initiated a new project.

The FBA continues to maintain the Mission Road medians, having now 20 yearly donors who help defray the costs of plants, planting, soil and the gardeners who perform the work. Additionally, this area has been plagued by hit-and-run accidents and collisions, resulting in damage to trees, shrubs and irrigation for which FBA continues to raise funds to keep this gateway beautiful.

The flowerpots along Main Avenue are another project of FBA. They have been assessed and moved to their permanent positions and are growing so well that some have outgrown their pots and have been replaced with smaller plants.

Partnering with the Rotary Club of Fallbrook, the Fallbrook Village Rotary and EDCO Recycling, FBA recycles buckets of household batteries. Albertsons, Major Market and Ace Hardware all allow the FBA to collect batteries at their stores.

Another project, Keeping Fallbrook Litter Free, has volunteers collecting trash and recyclables from streets each week. Materials needed for this effort are provided by FBA. Also, two community group clean ups occurred this year, one in the spring starting at Don Dussault Park and surrounding area, and one in November cleaning up the streets of downtown Fallbrook and the watershed, collecting over 600 pounds of litter.

FBA continues to keep up the Pico Promenade; cleaning up litter, emptying trash and managing the cigarette butt recycling drop off receptacle, placed along the walkway.

FBA volunteers continue to report locations where graffiti is found, and the county removes the graffiti on public property or works with the homeowner or business owner.

The new project that FBA is working on is the Dark Sky Initiative. This initiative aims to decrease light pollution, preserve Fallbrook's dark skies, encourage astronomy activities, help residents learn the health benefits of darkness for both humans and animals and more.

FBA depends on volunteers to be successful. If you have any interest in any of the above projects or need more information, visit
