Community Leader’s View: Working together the key to La Jolla organizations’ success

By Joe LaCava
La Jolla Community Planning Association

Last week’s op-ed pieces may have caused some confusion at best or fear of returning to the bad old days at worse.

I can say that the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) is committed to sustaining the joint committees that are unique to La Jolla and put in place nearly twenty years ago. This working relationship is by mutual agreement with La Jolla Town Council (LJTC), La Jolla Shores Association, Bird Rock Community Council, and the local manager of the La Jolla Business Improvement District (LJBID). The value to La Jolla in this joint advisory approach has clearly been proven time and time again.

The LJCPA recognizes the LJBID appointments to the committees that were made last year and intends to respect the hard-working merchant volunteers to the conclusion of their one-year term. As further evidence, up for consideration at tonight’s Annual LJCPA Member meeting is an amendment of our bylaws to ensure that the manager of the LJBID, the La Jolla Village Merchant Association (LJVMA), continues its role in making appointments to the joint committees and we look forward to the announcement of their appointees in May.

Certainly part of the job ahead for LJVMA is to address other committees and authorities created by direct action of the city previously under the jurisdiction of Promote La Jolla. The LJCPA will do its part to help, recognizing that a smooth transition will be to the benefit of the LJVMA, the merchants and La Jolla. To that end I have already started working with the LJVMA and LJTC.

Paraphrasing my op-ed piece in January, let 2011 be the year that the LJTC, LJVMA and the LJCPA are each up and operating at their full potential.
