Camino Roundabout Beautification Project

While the new Ponderado (Camino) roundabout provides a helpful, and safe, connection under Highway 50 in Camino, it desperately needs landscaping and beautification.

District 3 Supervisor, Wendy Thomas, and Arts and Culture El Dorado are working together with acclaimed local artist, Terrie Bennett, to design a sculpture that represents this unique and special region. A survey was sent out to get input from the community on how they view the Camino area, and what kinds of details they want on the sculpture.

A community meeting was held at Rainbow Orchards on August 30 at 5:30 pm to discuss the survey outcome, and collaborate on how we move forward - it also served to let the public see a model and renderings of the proposed statue.
