La Jolla Shores Association works for our community

Audrey D. Keane

Chair, La Jolla Shores Association

A great way to get involved in the community is to attend a La Jolla Shores Association meeting. On the second Wednesday of every month, we meet to review issues affecting the La Jolla Shores area, with the goal of providing local input.

Meetings include reports from UCSD, police, lifeguards, City Council District 1, and Friends of La Jolla Shores. Committees report on land use, parks and beaches, traffic, and merchants.

We are fortunate to live near the marine reserve, but that includes the responsibility to protect it. Construction of the new lifeguard station and parking lot, while inconvenient, offers the long-term benefits of improved safety and special features to control water run-off.

The City of San Diego recently presented a proposal to replace the storm sewers on Avenida de la Playa and to build a new outfall structure on the beach. Currently, storm water and pollution flows directly into the Reserve (a state designated area of special biological significance). LJSA has asked the city to develop plans that minimize the impact of construction on traffic and parking. As a result, the City organized a special community meeting last night.

Another current issue is City Council re-districting. The association recommended that La Jolla be reunited into one district and that La Jolla stay in the same district as University City. Furthermore, the group objected to dividing University City.

We have 16 Board Members and we welcome public comment from the community. We are responsible for recommending permits from the City Parks and Recreation Department for major events held in La Jolla Shores Beach, Kellogg Park, Laureate Park, Cliffridge Park and Allen Field.

Our next meeting is June 8 at 7 p.m. in Building T-29 at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography campus. Check out our website at HYPERLINK “http://www.LJSA.org”www.LJSA.org for directions and current information. Please join us!
