Chamber committee raises funds for sign restoration project
The Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Committee, in partnership with local muralist Ann Thompson, is seeking to raise $6,000 for the restoration of a Santa Rita Wine sign located at the southern entrance to Lompoc.
The sign’s design celebrates the local wine industry and the town’s connection to the Santa Rita Hills wine region that borders the valley.
Funds raised for the Gateway to the Santa Rita Wine Sign Restoration campaign will cover the cost of supplies, artist fees and future maintenance, as well as help the EDC volunteer committee achieve its goal of further beautifying the city, a chamber spokeswoman said. .
Members of the EDC committee believe that the beautification of the town is important to make Lompoc visually appealing, not only to community members but also to visitors, the spokeswoman said. She noted that the beautification also brings uniqueness to “underperforming areas.”
Once the mural project is complete, the committee will launch another round of fundraising for a second restoration project – a sign at the defunct drive-in at the north entrance to Lompoc.
To donate to the Santa Rita Wine Sign Project, checks annotated with “Santa Rita Wine Sign” can be made payable to: Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce Community Development Foundation and mailed to PO Box 626, Lompoc, CA 93438.
