Welcome to Carmel Valley Village
That’s what the rustic wooden sign in the Welcome Garden says as you enter the Village from the west. This beautiful garden–planned and maintained by Carmel Valley Village Improvement Committee (CVVIC, pronounced “civic”) –is but one of our many on-going projects designed to preserve and enhance the rural lifestyle of the Village.
Founded in 1978 by a group of civic-minded residents, CVVIC is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to preserving the rural lifestyle of the Village, while making improvements for the enjoyment of both residents and visitors.
The pathway in front of the Little European Inn was cut back to the County line and a retaining wall built to keep the pathway clear and allow drivers to see pedestrians.
At the beginning of 2016, CVVIC relandscaped and refreshed the Welcome Garden, including repainting the beloved sign.
At the end of 2015, we moved the Sheriff’s deputies’ office to the Activity Building in the Community Park on Ford Road, a much more central, visible location.
