Notable Facts about Encino Park, 2006–2010
Because of the US 281-N Super Street construction, the Encino Park Home Owners Association was forced to move the community’s 30-year-old entryway sign. In response to this change, the landmark sign was carefully removed and placed in the community’s bay area, and a new sign was designed for the community entrance. It resides among a rock wall, oak trees, and blooming spring flowers to represent our ever-growing community.
