Some folks in Point Loma think there is a great need to form a Point Loma Town Council. And there’s a presentation about that at the next Peninsula Community Planning Board meeting, Thursday, May 18th.  The presentation is at 6:30 pm.

The Board meets at the Point Loma Hervey Library, 3701 Voltaire Street.

Point Loma, like Ocean Beach, has a planning committee, but unlike OB, it doesn’t have a town council. Planning committees are limited to land-use issues in most cases, whereas town councils can take on a wider arrange of community issues and service projects.

Back in March, PL resident Michael Winn wrote here, “Why we need a Point Loma town council“,:

We need to elect a Point Loma Town Council that appropriately reflects demographics on the Peninsula, and charge it with promulgating a vision to preserve and restore quality of life on the Peninsula.

The Emerson project and San Diego airport (SAN) flight path expansions show us what we should expect from traditional back-door politics and ad hoc citizen protests.

Kellogg Beach shows us that unless we organize better, this will continue to plague our community because we must organize unpaid labor for each new proposal, while developers can budget it.
