Heritage / Community
The Time is Now to preserve Campbell’s heritage. So much of what is the Campbell charm is its community. Community events and historic preservation are important to Anne. The library is the gathering place of the community. She will make sure that the measure O funds are spent wisely to ensure we have an updated library to serve our community.
As part of the Civic Improvement Commission, Anne voted to grant the downtown Campbell Neighborhood Association money from the beautification program to build a historic pillar on the corner of Alice Avenue and South First Street. The modest brick pillar has a plaque explaining the history of Alice Avenue, where a portion of the George E. Hyde fruit drying and canning company once stood.
Anne was a volunteer and sponsor for the 4 th grade students from Capri Elementary School and Rosemary Elementary School to attend the May 9th Sebastian Peralta Adobe Plaque Dedication. This event commemorated the very first adobe built in Campbell--near the Rincon parking lot at what is now John D. Morgan park.
Anne would like more residents to know about the Historic Preservation Board. The Board is responsible for recommending measures to implement historic preservation and reviewing the historical significance of structures and properties.
Anne will continue to support community events like the Farmer’s Market, Bunnies and Bonnets Parade, Second Saturdays in downtown, Boogie Music Festival, First Friday in downtown, Wine Walks, and much more. Bringing the Campbell Community together at events like these make this city a desirable place to live.
