Hard work paying off for La Jolla merchants group

By Sherri Lightner
Councilwoman, First District

In great news for our business community, elections for the new La Jolla Village Merchants Association are being conducted now. Ballots have been mailed to all businesses located within the boundaries of the Village’s Business Improvement District and are due on Thursday by 5 p.m.

If you haven’t already completed and mailed in your ballot, it’s not too late to deliver it in person to the City of San Diego’s Office of Small Business, located in the Civic Center Plaza, 1200 Third Ave. Suite 1400, San Diego, 92101.

Ballots will be counted beginning at 1 p.m. on Friday at the La Jolla Rec Center. The top 15 vote-getters will constitute the first Board of Directors for the new group. The new board will be ready to hit the ground running, thanks to the efforts of many dedicated volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the past several months to draft bylaws and a concept budget for the new group to consider. We’re looking forward to the group’s first meeting, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 24 at the La Jolla Library, 7555 Draper Ave. The public is invited to attend.

Thank you to all the community members who participated in the informational forum on the conceptual design of the Torrey Pines Corridor Project on Jan. 19. We received many good suggestions and comments from the community. The discussion on this project will be continuing with an opportunity to provide public input at the La Jolla Traffic and Transportation Board meeting at 6 p.m. on Feb. 24 at the La Jolla Rec Center.
