Report of OB Town Council Meeting – Get It Done App, New 7-11 Coming, and Board Elections Scheduled

July 29, 2016 by Frank Gormlie

OBTC Meet 72716 crowd
This is a brief report of the OB Town Council meeting held Wednesday, July 27th, as usual at the Masonic Center on Sunset Cliffs Boulevard. What we found out: the City has a new complaint website and App, there’s another 7-11 coming into OB, and the Town Council has set up its election schedule – half of its seats are up for re-election.

What with conflicts with a big-name concert, the continuing Democratic convention, and the heat – the gathering was a little sparse. Forty attendees were counted by the end of the meeting, but many of the city departments that serve OB did not have their usual reps present to make reports (SDPD, firefighters, life guards).

“Get It Down” Webpage for City

One of the main presentations of the evening was by Conrad Wear, representative of Councilwoman Zapf’s office, on a brand new element of the City’s website called “Get it done” that makes it easy to report problems, especially street-related issues. There is also an App available. Here it is .

San Diegans Voice Concerns to State Officials About Air Quality, Environmental Justice, and Climate Change

July 29, 2016 by Source

By David Harris / San Diego 350

SD350 members David Harris, Eddie Junsay, Nicola Peill-Moelter, Roland Bleu, Michael Brackney and others participate in the energy tableWhat do you get when you bring together 120 environmental activists and residents from environmental justice communities in a room with a dozen state regulators?

If you’re lucky, dozens of ideas for incentivizing renewable energy, improving public transit, and protecting neighborhoods from toxic industrial fumes.

This is exactly what happened on July 14th when the California Air Resources Board (CARB) sponsored a workshop on climate change at the beautiful new Cesar Chavez campus in Barrio Logan.

Local residents, whose voices are rarely heard by policy makers in Sacramento, came out in force to speak out about air pollution from local industry, the need for better transit options, and the impacts of climate change on communities already impacted by poor air quality.

    Fiesta Island Debate: “One of few open and undeveloped areas within City will end if current proposed plan is implemented.”

    July 28, 2016 by Source

    Fiesta Island mapBy Jean Spengel , FIDO Boardmember

    I would just like to reply to Ms. Swink’s editorial, ‘Improvements Needed to Expand Access’

    She obviously thinks that people enjoying the beach with their off-leash dogs do not matter,- they should be replaced by other users she wants to bring into the area.

    This is in spite of the fact that the 90 acre fenced off-leash area is the most heavily used space in all of Mission Bay Park.

    Every day, 365 days a year, hundreds to thousands of tax paying citizens use this area to exercise with their dogs.

    While there are over 40,000 acres of parkland in San Diego only about 40 of those acres (not including Fiesta Island) are available for off-leash use. That is about 1% of the public parkland.

    A San Diego Millennial’s View of the (Recent) History of Marijuana

    The Old OB Hippie Blogs

    An old fart like me gets really excited in anticipation of recreational marijuana being finally legalized for the first time in California this November. I’ve been smoking “black market” weed for 50 years, always having to hide it – first from my parents, then from my kids. But no longer.

    Smoking herb will be legal very soon. I can’t wait. In the meantime, of course, I got my Letter of Recommendation from a doctor for medicinal cannabis. (I have plenty of genuine ailments, you doubters!)

    In a quick leap, I went from smoking “Mexy” – the average marijuana from the border region – to smoking the good flower you can buy at the dispensaries. That is quite a jump. And I’ve had to run to catch up on all the brand names and accoutrements. The friends I have of my age all laugh at the different titles to this or that variety – as they don’t understand that the titles represent brands, and different strains.

    So, to understand even more and to broaden my views, I sat down recently with a local millennial from San Diego to get his perspective on the marijuana experience and its and his history. I’ll call him “Mick”.

    Another Death at Sunset Cliffs – Fisherman Dies at Luscom’s

    Sunset Cliffs mattwood

    There’s been yet another death at Sunset Cliffs – this time a man fishing near Luscom’s jumped into the ocean on Sunday, July 24th around 1 pm, reportedly to cool off, and ran into trouble immediately, according to bystanders. Luscom’s is near Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and Monaco Street.

    He’s been identified as San Diego resident AbelkHalek Boutayeb, 61.

    Boutayeb had been fishing for about2 hours when bystanders saw him either climb down the cliffs and got in the water or jumped in. As he struggled, he hit his head against the reef. One or 2 people jumped in and tried to save him, and one of them tried to keep the victim afloat.

    The Ocean Beach Historical Society had a presentation to coincide with the Ocean Beach Pier turning 50 years old. There was a briefing and celebration at the Point Loma United Methodist Church on Sunset Cliffs Blvd last week on Thursday, July 21stat 700PM.

    Ralph Teyssier lectured on the engineering and building that went into the Ocean Beach Fishing Pier.

    Per the Historical Society’s web site:

    Leonard Teyssier, Ralph’s father, was owner of one of the largest construction companies in San Diego in the mid- 1960s. Leonard’s firm, Teyssier, Teyssier, Inc., built the Ocean Beach Pier.”

    Ralph spoke to a packed house and engaged the audience with slides of historical photographs and architectural blue prints of the Ocean Beach Fishing Pier. He had been a teenager during the construction progress and was on-site to witness much of the pier fabrication and construction.

    Outside Spaces, the Bold Vista of Ocean Beach, and Other Wonders : 2016 Summer Chronicles 6

    July 25, 2016 by Jim Miller

    sunset in OBOne of the great pleasures of my life to date was having access, for a period of several years, to a dingy little studio by the sea in Ocean Beach.

    It was so small that when you rolled out the futon, it took up the entire room. The kitchen was too tiny for a dinner table, the hot water frequently didn’t work in the bathroom, and the constant noise and pot smoke from the neighbors streamed through the cracked, paper-thin walls.

    It was paradise.

    The saving grace, no, the miracle, of this claustrophobic hovel was that you opened the door to the ocean and within a few steps you arrived at a disheveled patio full of rusty tables and moldy plastic chairs overlooking the cliffs and the pounding surf below. As with the dramatic difference between the cell-like studio and the big blue sea, on the patio, the juxtaposition of grit and grandeur was striking, and somehow perfect.

    Zapf Introduces Surveillance Cameras to OB at Press Conference But No Questions Were Allowed

    OB cams 72116 prot
    Councilwoman Lori Zapf on Thursday, July 21st, introduced the newly-installed police surveillance cameras at a brief news conference held on the greens near the OB Lifeguard Station.

    With ranking police officers and OB merchants on both sides of her, Zapf led off the presser before 2 TV cameras, and a handful of protesters opposed to the cameras.

    Zapf said that over a year ago, police leaders at Western Division working with her office to come up with safety measures came up with the idea to install ten cameras along OB’s waterfront.

    Now they’ve all been placed, from the OB Pier to Dog Beach, and the signs went up just now, Zapf said, and the cameras can now go live.

    Emphasizing the cameras were a crime-prevention tool, a deterrent, they’ll make the beach more safe, she said, mentioning that the cameras will bring relief to the tourists worried about being victimized.

    Why the cameras? Zapf asked.

    Debate Over Future of Fiesta Island Continues: ‘Improvements Needed to Expand Access’

    Thumbnail image for Debate Over Future of Fiesta Island Continues: ‘Improvements Needed to Expand Access’

    Editor: This is a continuation of the debate over the future of Fiesta Island. It began with op-eds in the San Diego Union-Tribune, and we helped it along with our earlier post. Here below, Judith Swink rebuts the rebuttals.

    By Judith Swink

    Improvements on Fiesta Island will happen eventually because they must.

    The 1994 Mission Bay Park Master Plan carried forward that intention from the previous master plans. The proposed Fiesta Island improvements will make the island more useful and inviting to a much larger number of people than just those who want to use it as it is today. It is a key tenet of both the Mission Bay Park Master Plan and the California Coastal Act that coastal recreation areas be developed to enable use and access for everyone.

    A Local Coastal Program amendment in 2002, in conjunction with approval of the Sea World Master Plan by the Coastal Commission requires the City to develop Fiesta Island as proposed in the 1994 Mission Bay Park Master Plan and LCP.

    Is the City hard of hearing or just slow?

    Four-story duplexes going up in the three-story zone of the Roseville neighborhood at Emerson and Evergreen created almost universal community outrage.

    Citizens turned out to protest. TV stations, social media and print publications such as the OB Rag, The Reader and The Beacon took note.

    Community advocates such as Elisa Brent, Babita Souza and this writer – organized a Town Hall meeting on June 27. Some 250 people attended and donated a third of the money necessary for a legal campaign in just five minutes.

    The mayor heard. Kevin Faulconer issued a stop-work order on the project the very next day.

    But that wasn’t enough, the broader issue of all the other potential height violations remained unaddressed.

    Today at 2pm – July 19th – the San Diego City Council will vote on their Single-Use Carryout Bag Reduction Ordinance, or “bag ban”.

    This will happen at 2 pm in Council Chambers at City Hall, 202 C St, 12th Floor, San Diego CA 92101. Activists from Surfrider San Diego are urging caring San Diegans to attend this hearing.

    If the ordinance passes, San Diego will become the 150th jurisdiction in the state of California to be covered by a ban.

    In the City of San Diego, 700 million plastic carryout bags are distributed each year and less than 3% are recycled. This ordinance will remove 665 million plastic carryout bags from distribution and San Diego will take a huge step in reducing plastic pollution at its source and ultimately protecting our ocean and beaches.

    Charger's ConvadiumThe Chargers want the City to create a separate Fund, the Convention Center Expansion and Stadium Fund, which will borrow money from Wall Street in the form of Bonds and be firewalled off from the City’s General Fund. So it’s like a separate entity for which the City is not responsible at all, but the City has to create it.

    The BIG question is, “Will Wall Street go along with this?” The monies flowing into this fund come solely from an increase in the Tax On Transiency (TOT) of 4% (or is it 6% as stated in the proposal?).

    If these monies aren’t sufficient to make the payments on the $1.15 billion in bonds that this “entity” (not the City, mind you) is responsible for, then what happens? Who’s left holding the bag?

    It’s Not Just Dog Owners Who Want to Keep Fiesta Island ‘Wild’

    By Frank Gormlie

    Perhaps you’ve been too busy with summer to notice, but there’s been a ‘quiet’ debate going on recently in certain circles – including the op-ed pages of the San Diego Union-Tribune – over the future of Fiesta Island.

    Fiesta Island – you know that flat and sandy piece of land that juts out into Mission Bay – it’s not really an island as it’s connected with the rest of San Diego by a narrow land bridge with an asphalt road – where people bike, do day-camps on the sand, water or jet-ski, or take their horses, have fires in the firepits, – oh, and who take their dogs to the great off-leash area on the Island.

    The land of Island Fiesta itself is what’s left from all the sludge dredged up during the 1950’s development of Mission Bay Park.

    There’s been for years an ongoing debate between dog owners who have formed a group Fiesta Island Dog Owners (FIDO) and others who want to see Fiesta Island developed with “improvements”. And the now the debate is ramping up ….

    Those same visitors created 1,341 job,s which had a cumulative benefit to the local economy of $128 million, according to an April 21, 2016 statement from the National Park Service.

    And still, knowing how much his constituents rely on the existence of a National Park within his congressional district, Republican Rep. Paul Cook has done everything within his power to hinder any growth of the Park Service, which will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in August.

    Friends of the Ocean Beach Library Have High Hopes for its Expansion

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    The Friends of the Ocean Beach library and its staff have high hopes for the expansion of the branch – one of the oldest in the City’s system.

    It was in a cool, air-conditioned backroom where I sat down with head librarian Matt Beatty and Laura Dennison, one of the co-chairs of the Expansion sub-committee for the Friends to discuss the library’s expansion plans.

    The basic idea is for the library to take over either parts of or all of the building next door, which is already owned by the City – bought over a decade ago in anticipation of the OB Library’s rehab and expansion.

    The next door building – now inhabited by law firms – all with leases with the City – is so close to the Library, that the hopes are that they can be connected at some point, with a computer lab, meeting rooms and staff offices for the librarians.

    Chargers Convadium Plan: Lipstick on a Pig

    chargers design 5Part 2 in a series

    By John Lawrence

    I previously reported on the 110 Pages of Gobbledygook that represents the Chargers’ proposal to build a combination football stadium and convention center expansion in downtown. It looks like it’s not going to happen because Mayor Kevin Faulconer and a lot of conservative businessmen are against it.

    Perhaps the Chargers assumed that Faulconer would immediately climb on the bandwagon and start cheering for the so-called convadium.

    Faulconer, however, to his credit has been cautious, questioning the $1.15 billion in new debt the City would have to take on as its part in this endeavor. The Chargers casually gloss over this in their gobbledygook proposal. And they say nothing about the $50 million still owed on Qualcomm Stadium as if that’s not even something worth mentioning.

    As if this wasn’t bad enough, recent state Supreme Court ruling means that the Chargers will probably have to have a two-thirds approval from the voters in November instead of a simple majority.
