Zoom Forum on Beach Fires and Fire Preparedness

SEPTEMBER 10th, 5:30PM – 6:40PM

Join us for a presentation on beach fires and fire preparedness. Residents will explain the recent beach fire activities and issues, including the high amount of particulate matter in the air from the wood burning fires and provide a safer alternative to wood burning fires on the beach. Our local 5th Battalion Fire Chief will review ways to stay safe during fire season, which started early this year.

If Proposed bus route #34 becomes a reality, it opens all property along it’s route to all the new bills in Sacramento touting to increase density without going thru any Local Planning Groups.

The Metropolitan Transit System released its Mid-Coast Feeder Bus Plan this week, including the new local route #34 depicted in bright green on the map.  If the MTS Board gives its final approval, the route will open when the trolley begins service in the Spring of 2021.  Note: All new bus routes are re-evaluated at the end of one year.

Letter to the Mayor re Kellogg Parking Lot Gates:

Dear Mr. Mayor and All –

On behalf of all the Shores residents and owners, we at La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) want to express our appreciation for all your efforts to keep our Community safe during COVID-19. Keeping the gates to Kellogg Park Parking Lot locked 24/7 is crucial to this effort.

Keeping these gates locked makes it possible for SDPD and Lifeguards to successfully and effectively enforce the all important social distancing and no groups policies so essential at this time. With the Kellogg Park Parking Lot gates open, these all important enforcement efforts would be impossible.

Again, we all thank all of you for continuing to keep our Community of mostly over 60+ years olds safe. We rely on your for our continued health and safety at this time.

Many thanks – Stay well and safe all – Janie Emerson, President LJSA
