La Jolla Shores lifeguard, parking projects get underway

First District Councilmember Sherri Lightner, Mayor Jerry Sanders, Fire-Rescue Chief Javier Mainar and staff from the city’s Engineering and Capital Projects and Storm Water Departments participated in a groundbreaking ceremony Nov. 22 at Kellogg Park in La Jolla Shores.

The group kicked-off two projects:

• A 1,485-square-foot, state-of-the-art La Jolla Shores Lifeguard Station to include an observation tower with a 270-degree view, a modern first aid room, male/female locker rooms, administration areas and a staff ready room; and

• Kellogg Green Lot Infiltration, which will remove 18,000 square feet of asphalt and replace it with permeable pavers to treat storm water and urban runoff to prevent pollutants from entering the Areas of Special Biological Significance (ASBS). The project includes elements that will capture surface runoff from the parking lot and public right-of-way.
