The PLA is a 501 c4 non profit group, founded over 50 years ago, whose mission is to improve and beautify our Peninsula community for the benefit of all.
We routinely tend 18 different public spaces in the Peninsula (list enclosed). Every Friday morning (9am-10:30), the PLA Mean Green Team, takes care of one of the listed sites. This includes taking care of plantings (weeding, trimming, fertilizing), picking up litter and cleaning up graffiti.
We fundraise to transform medians with ugly black asphalt into beautiful areas with plantings and color.
We pay artists to paint utility boxes to deter graffiti.
We send timely, informative E-news with local events and activities
We hold yearly Town Hall Forums to inform and educate residents about topics relevant to the Peninsula.
We support the free summer concerts at the Point Loma Park.
We sponsor the “Welcome Home Submarine” banner program to welcome our submarines after their long deployments.
