A workshop has been set for tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 17th, on a Nimitz Boulevard “community vision plan”, sponsored by the Point Loma Association (PLA). It will be at 8:30 p.m. and will be held at the Point Loma Presbyterian Church Family Life Center, 2129 Chatsworth Blvd.

The workshop to discuss the community’s vision for Nimitz Boulevard will enable PLA to seek support, input and funding for further improvements along the Nimitz corridor, as they recently completed a median-enhancement project at West Point Loma Avenue and Nimitz Boulevard.

Toward that end, a Nimitz Visioning Task Force comprising Peninsula leaders and recent and past city planners has been formed.

Cecilia Carrick, past PLA chairwoman, talked about the group’s expectations for the workshop.

“We want the whole community to come in and give us input on what their vision is for Nimitz Boulevard. Do they want more or fewer bike lanes? More landscaping? Road improvements? Public art? We’d love to hear from the community and also share what our mission is.”

The Nimitz Task Force includes:

  • Ron Brooks, PLA Beautification Committee chairman;
  • Carrick;
  • Coleen Clementson, a planner with the San Diego Association of Governments;
  • Ned Daugherty, landscape architect;
  • Karen Davis, PLA master gardener;
  • Kerri DeRosier, PLA newsletter editor;
  • Dan Dennison, PLA board member;
  • Jim Hare, former San Diego city planner;
  • architect Lee Hope;
  • PLA chairman Robert Jackson;
  • architect Dick Lareau;
  • former San Diego planning director Betsy McCullough;
  • and former San Diego City Councilman Byron Wear.
