I don’t know. I suspect there could be an overpass query to pull all the objects with addr:city tags from within an administrative boundary. If so then it could be pretty easy to do with manual edits for those areas with boundaries.
In the case of Pine Valley, it seems to be a place name with a post office but not an incorporated city or town with formal boundaries. So finding the correct set of objects to correct will not be so easy (thus my hope for some local mapper to step up and help).
With respect to finding incorrect street names (Dr. instead of Drive, etc.) one could simply block out the area (tasking manager?) and work off the errors indicated by OSM Inspector: http://tools.geofabrik.de/osmi/?view=addresses&lon=-116.97428&lat=32.79299&zoom=11&overlays=buildings_with_addresses,street_not_found,connection_lines,nearest_points,nearest_roads

>> Late last year September 2014 i sent an email about a 2009 San Diego address import that needed it's street names expanded by a bot. It was imported before the community had an acceptance of expanding street names. Any chance some one can run a bot to expand them. I have no experience on that. Not home right now, but you search anywhere near San Diego and check an address and you'll see what I'm talking about.
