The city of Encinitas has sent a loud and clear message that it doesn't think much of it's red headed step child, Leucadia and that if Leucadians want improvements then Leucadians need to take matters into their own hands. Never mind that the city has a surplus of funds and has pet projects all over town, if Leucadians want a nice Leucadia then it is up to us man.
The city still thinks we are blighted despite the happy talk damage control of late and after the mini revolt against the RDA we are pretty much cut off from daddy.
So some plucky citizens have taken matters into their own hands and have started a 5 dollar donation program to buy plants to beautify our center medians in Leucadia.

ENCINITAS ---- For five bucks, you can adopt a plant and contribute to the beautification of downtown Leucadia. The Leucadia-Encinitas Highway 101 MainStreet Association plans to put 1,500 plants in the medians of six blocks on North Coast Highway 101, on each side of Leucadia Boulevard between Glaucus and Cadmus streets.
For a minimum donation of $5, donors can sponsor one plant and receive a commemorative card. For $50, donors can buy 10 plants and get a commemorative sticker for their home or office. Encinitas will embed the plants and the irrigation needed to sustain them
To adopt a plant, call Kirpalani at (760) 436-2320 in the association's office at 216 N. Coast Highway, or visit the association's booth at the farmers market at Paul Ecke Central School, 185 Union St., between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on any Sunday
Throw down a Lincoln and plant a ceanothus
I wonder which nursery they are going to buy the plants from?
