    Pacific Beach banner program Discover PB is offering merchants an opportunity to advertise their businesses and beautify the community at the same time via banners. Banners will be placed in high-traffic corridors on Garnet Avenue, Mission Boulevard and other prime locations throughout the beach community.  “The PB banner program is a community beautification program with the intent of promoting local businesses, events and community gatherings of general public interest on the streets and public rights-of -way,” said Sara Berns, Discover PB’s executive director. “It is also a way to promote neighborhood pride and identity.” Banners costing $350 include a business logo on the merchant’s choice of a Shop, Play, Eat or Farmers' Market banner to promote shopping small while encouraging tourists and locals alike to shop, eat and stay local.  Banner sponsorships are open to all PB small businesses and local organizations. Proceeds from banner sales will go directly back to neighborhoods, helping to fund ongoing community improvements. “We also have a renewal discount for anyone renewing their banner from last year,” said Berns. Día de los Muertos at Old Town In honor of one of Mexico’s most vibrant holidays, Old Town icons Bazaar del Mundo and Casa Guadalajara will team up to celebrate Día de los Muertos, Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 1-3. The entrance to Casa Guadalajara will become a marketplace of artisans and merchandise from Bazaar del Mundo, face painting, and a life-size Catrina sitting in an Instagrammable 1800s carriage. Throughout the weekend, performances from lively Ballet Folklorico dancers and Casa Guadalajara’s world-class Mariachi band – all in painted skeleton faces – plus Chinelos dancers, will take place. Popular in Mexico but rarely seen in the United States, Chinelos dancers dress in vibrant, traditional costumes designed to mock Europeans and European mannerisms from the colonial period to the end of the 19th century.   Arrest made in in the Point Loma Heights homicide On Tuesday, Oct. 9, at about 11:42 p.m., the San Diego Police Department Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a person in the parking lot of 4013 W. Point Loma Blvd, who had been shot. The first police units to arrive found a black female with a gunshot wound to the upper body. Paramedics arrived and transported the victim to a local hospital. Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced dead at the hospital. The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim and the suspect were standing next to a vehicle inside the parking lot at 4013 W. Point Loma Blvd. talking. At some point the two began to argue and one gunshot was heard. The victim was seen laying on the ground in the parking lot and a dark sedan was seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed east on W. Point Loma Blvd. The suspect was described as a black male in his mid to late 30s wearing dark clothing. The victim has been identified as 20-year old Octavia Williams from Phoenix. San Diego Police Department Homicide Detectives determined that 41-year old Joe Bennette Conway shot the victim and then fled the area before police arrived. A warrant was issued for Conway’s arrest for murder. On Oct. 30, Conway was located and arrested in Tempe, Ariz. with the help of the Phoenix Police Department. Conway is being held pending extradition for the murder of Williams. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Hookah lounge stabber sentenced to 4 years A man who stabbed an employee of a Pacific Beach hookah lounge was sentenced on Oct. 23 to four years in state prison. Simone Myjel Carter, 26, was given credit for already serving 93 days in jail by San Diego Superior Court Judge Polly Shamoon, which includes good conduct credits. No restitution was ordered for the Sept. 6 incident at the Pharaoh Hookah Lounge at 976 Garnet Ave. A 21-year-old employee was injured at 11:40 p.m. when he tried to eject Carter after he caused some problems in the lounge. Carter pulled a knife and stabbed the employee twice. The worker was taken to a hospital but the injuries were not life threatening. Shamoon denied probation and imposed four years in prison which Carter had agreed to accept when he pleaded guilty Sept. 20 to assault with a deadly weapon. The maximum sentence was eight years. Other charges were dismissed including two assault counts of a woman and another man and vandalism. Arrest made in Midway District homicide On Oct. 29 at 1:45 p.m., the San Diego Police Department Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a subject who was injured and possibly deceased inside the X-Spot adult bookstore located at 3600 Midway Drive. Fire personnel arrived on scene and found a 65-year-old white female with trauma to her upper body who was deceased. Fire personnel exited the business and police officers entered the location to ensure no one else was inside. San Diego Police homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate the incident. Based on information developed during their investigation, 39-year-old Shaun Ward was identified as the suspect. Ward was arrested in the City of San Diego on Oct. 29 and was booked into jail for the murder. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 1 at 1:30 p.m. The victim was identified as 65- year-old Diane Spagnuolo of El Cajon. Dogs from Florida now available for adoption Some of the dogs transferred to San Diego from shelters in Florida are ready to find loving homes. On Oct. 18, 93 dogs were flown to San Diego to create space at shelters in the Florida Panhandle for animals who have been displaced by Hurricane Michael. The Florida dogs are available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s San Diego Campus (5500 Gaines St.). These pets are not direct victims of Hurricane Michael. They are dogs who were transported to San Diego to create room for pets who have been lost, strayed or abandoned due to the hurricane. These pets do not have owners who will be searching for them when the conditions improve. All of the dogs will be spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped. The available dogs can be found at sdhumane.org/pet and can be identified by the tag “#hm.” Adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis.

They can send in their ballot by mail, drop it off at the Registrar of Voters Office in Kearny Mesa or drop it off at any one of 59 additional sites (including the Pacific Beach Library on Cass Street) throughout the county before Election Day. The drop-off sites will be open during each location’s regular business hours from Monday, Oct. 29 through Election Day. The high number of contests in the Nov. 6 election means San Diego County voters will be getting a two-card ballot, with races listed on the front and back of each card. The quicker that ballots are returned to the Registrar’s Office, the quicker they can be prepared for counting Election Night, saving time and taxpayer dollars.

    With the goal of enhancing and preserving San Diego’s regional parks for generations to come, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer was joined on Oct. 31 by Councilmember Lori Zapf and park advocates to announce more than $40 million in infrastructure investments for Mission Bay Park over the next six years for environmental protection and infrastructure projects, including new and improved playgrounds, comfort stations and other public amenities. Projects include: - Bay dredging – More than $10 million has been spent to restore navigational safety to the bay. Mitigation, which is now complete and in the monitoring phase, was ranked as the top infrastructure priority for Mission Bay Park. - Parking lots – More than $5 million for parking lot resurfacing at Crown Point North, De Anza North, De Anza South, Dog Beach, North Cove, Old Sea World Drive, Santa Clara, Dusty Rhodes, Hospitality Point, Mission Point, Ocean Beach Dog Beach Walkway, Quivira Road, Playa Pacifica North, Robb Field, Rose Marie Starns South Shores, Sunset Point, Tecolote North and Tecolote South. - Playgrounds – Nearly $8 million to replace playground equipment at Bonita Cove West, Crown Point, Santa Clara, Tecolote North, Tecolote South, Bonita Cove East, Dusty Rhodes, Mission Point, Playa Pacifica and Robb Field. - Comfort stations – More than $7 million to replace and upgrade comfort stations at Bonita Cove West, El Carmel, Mission Bay Athletic Area, North Cove, Santa Clara, Tecolote North, Tecolote South, Bonita Cove East, Dusty Rhodes, Hospitality Point, Mission Point, Playa Pacifica, Robb Field, Sunset Point and Ventura. - Fitness and recreation facilities – More than $3 million to replace and upgrade the adult fitness course on East Mission Bay and the recreation center at Robb Field. “Mission Bay Park is getting the investment of a century with a wave of voter-approved funding,” said Zapf. “From dredging, lighting, comfort stations, bike and walking paths and new playgrounds, Mission Bay Park will better serve San Diegans and visitors.” The Mission Bay Park Committee advises the Park and Recreation Board on the development and operation of Mission Bay Park. The committee also acts as the Mission Bay Park Improvement Fund Oversight Committee and is responsible for overseeing permanent capital improvements and deferred maintenance of facilities within park boundaries. “My committee and I were ecstatic that the voters of our city overwhelmingly approved Measure J,” said Mission Bay Park Committee chairman Paul Robinson. “This will permit the City, with our oversight, to continue to invest millions of dollars in Mission Bay.” Long-term investments also include $7 million for a master environmental report to streamline construction and guide the City on the environmental impacts of proposed projects, including wetland expansion and water quality improvements for Rose Creek, North Fiesta Island, Tecolote Creek and Cudahy Creek. It will also include the restoration of failing shorelines, San Diego River Trail improvements, and the expansion of preserves and habitats for endangered species within the Mission Bay Park Improvement Zone. “Mission Bay Park is one of San Diego’s most popular destinations to both residents and visitors alike, and we are excited to see the tremendous amount of investment in the upkeep and improvement of the park,” said Herman Parker, director of the City’s Parks and Recreation Department. “The planned upgrades in infrastructure, playgrounds and facilities will ensure one of the nation’s largest water parks continues to be a source of enjoyment today and for future generations.” In November 2016, voters approved Measure J to extend 2008’s Proposition C – co-authored by then Councilmember Faulconer – to direct a portion of Mission Bay lease revenue toward capital investments in Mission Bay Park and regional parks for an additional 30 years. An estimated $1.5 billion will be generated through 2069. “Our regional parks are among San Diego’s most valuable assets and the significant investments we’re making to Mission Bay Park will ensure it is preserved and enhanced for future generations to enjoy,” Faulconer said. “This continues the largest park investment effort San Diego has seen in modern history as we’ve opened dozens of new or improved parks in neighborhoods across the city over the past few years.” Mission Bay Park is the largest aquatic park of its kind in the country, consisting of more than 4,000 acres of parkland and 27 miles of shoreline. About 15 million people visit the park annually.

    A round-robin discussion of the ubiquitous electric scooters headlined Pacific Beach Planning Group’s October meeting. Community planners vetting the issue on Oct. 24 followed unanimous approval that day of a City Council committee’s endorsement of Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s proposed new regulations of dockless scooters. PBPG board member Eve Anderson and community activist Marcie Beckett presented numerous proposed additions to the mayor’s framework. “Scooter companies are using our infrastructure and not paying for anything,” contended Beckett, who’s been documenting widespread law violations by local scooter riders. “Each scooter should have a license plate, and riders should be required to scan their driver’s license each time they ride to prevent use by underage riders” (Bird scooter riders are required to scan their driver’s licenses). Becket issued a handout with a laundry list of suggestions for new scooter regulations that included: cost-recovery fees from companies to provide law enforcement; company fees for bike/scooter lane development and maintenance; citations and fines for adults unlocking scooters for underage riders; and citations/fines for scooter companies whose vehicles block ADA ramps, sidewalks, businesses or private property. Group chair Henish Pulickal said other cities have employed high-tech to control scooters. “If you don’t park it in designated areas, it won’t turn off,” he said. “It keeps running.” “We need to limit the number of scooters in any community,” Anderson added.  “Proper parking for these is a big sore point,” said board member RJ Kunysz. “What we actually need is a per-mile use fee for each vehicle accessed,” said board member Jason Legros. “That is the only way we can keep up with the impact of scooters.” “The mayor’s framework is a first step,” said board member Karl Rand. “Tracking them needs to be refined,” added board member Jim Morrison. Board colleague Ed Gallagher noted, “[Scooters] should be able to slow down. The technology is there. [Dockless] bikes also shouldn’t be left on the sidewalk at night to get knocked over.” Audience member Chris Brewster gave a hotline number, 866-205-2442, people can call to get scooters fetched from in front of their properties. Board member Kristin Victor suggested scooter regulations ought to be part of a broader discussion of transportation safety to include bicycles and cars. In other action SDMTS transportation planner Peter Casellini updated the group on a feeder bus study underway for the Mid-Coast light rail extension from Old Town to University City serving nine new stations, including Pacific Beach/Clairemont. Casellini fielded numerous questions from board members and residents. MTS is developing a plan for adjusting bus service to better serve the new Trolley extension. Mid-Coast Trolley construction began in fall 2016 and service is anticipated to begin in 2021. Casselini said SDMTS is hosting regional workshops on the future Mid-Coast interconnection between buses and trolley. A workshop was held Oct. 29 at PB Rec Center.

    Conceptual plans released for Mission Bay wetlands restoration
    Nov 01, 2018 | 1245 views | 0 0 comments | 20 20 recommendations | email to a friend | print
    ReWild Mission Bay – a project of San Diego Audubon and its partners to enhance and restore wetlands in the north east corner of Mission Bay – recently released the final conceptual plans for how wetlands can be feasibly restored to protect wildlife and our communities. The three plans include expanded public access and habitat restoration options, as well as cost estimates and sea-level rise modeling.  “What is so exciting about this effort is how involved the community has been from the beginning, helping our consultant team develop the restoration plans from the ground up,” said Rebecca Schwartz Lesberg, project manager for ReWild Mission Bay. “These aren’t just our suggestions – this is what the community has asked for. People have been vocal about their support for finding a way to restore and protect this piece of San Diego’s coastline, and ReWild Mission Bay provides that path forward,” she said. The plans, and all of the analysis that went into them, will be presented to the public at a workshop on the evening of Dec. 6 at Mission Bay High School. The full report describes the existing and historical land use and environmental conditions of Mission Bay, what the opportunities and constraints are to restoring wetlands, and analyzes how each of the final plans stacks up in achieving the goals of ReWild Mission Bay. The report, and the detailed restoration plans it includes, is the result of more than four years of public engagement, including four workshops attended by hundreds of community members.  The project’s Wetlands Working Group Steering Committee, including the California State Coastal Conservancy, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the University of California’s Natural Reserve System led the process collaboratively with restoration professionals at Everest International Consultants and San Diego Audubon staff and volunteers.  The effort also involved close coordination with an expert Science and Technical Advisory Committee, which included scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve, as well as staff from the City of San Diego’s Planning, Parks and Recreation, and Transportation and Stormwater Departments, among others. “Rarely has a planning process in the City of San Diego involved such collaborative efforts between scientists, conservationists, and the community,” said Schwartz Lesberg. Wetlands — including marshes, mud flats, creekbanks and more — play an important role in San Diego’s quality of life, as they attract wildlife, foster a diverse ecosystem, improve water quality and protect communities from flooding by providing a cushion during high tides. Today, only 5 percent of the historic 4,000 acres of Mission Bay wetlands remain, making ReWild Mission Bay a critical and time-sensitive project for the area. Chris Redfern, executive director of San Diego Audubon, highlighted the value of having City of San Diego support for the effort, which has been part of the Mission Bay Master Plan for decades. Redfern said: “We are excited to work with the City and all of our partners to see this vision implemented. This is the only way to protect the bay’s few remnant wetlands, which provide crucial habitat for wildlife, from disappearing.” in the coming years due to sea level rise.”  At more than 350 pages long, the Feasibility Study Report (available at rewildmissionbay.org) provides detailed information on restoration alternatives and the process used to generate them. San Diego Audubon and the ReWild Working Group will host a final public workshop on Dec. 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Mission Bay High School cafeteria to present the findings of the study and outline future efforts to make wetlands restoration in the northeast corner of Mission Bay a reality. “For the first time in half a century, the public has the opportunity to weigh in on how these public lands are used. And it is probably our last chance to do so before we see some of the most damaging impacts of climate change. It’s our responsibility to make sure our children and grandchildren have a chance to enjoy nature, and experience the protections wetlands provide for our communities,” said Redfern. “Over the past century, Mission Bay has been converted from a rich natural treasure into a heavily developed recreational area,” said Julia Elkin with the California State Coastal Conservancy, who also served on the ReWild Working Group. “People have lost the opportunity to really experience nature along the shoreline in Mission Bay. This is an unprecedented opportunity to restore a small piece of what was lost.”  The workshop will be an opportunity for the public to learn about the results from the ReWild Mission Bay Wetlands Restoration Feasibility Study, including seeing up close details of the plans they helped create. The ReWild project teams will be on hand to answer questions. From there, next steps include integration of these plans with the City’s ongoing land use and development plans for the area, environmental review, permitting, and restoration of the area’s wetlands.
