Committee speaker Jerry Hall addresses the Pacific Beach Town Council.
Pacific Beach Proactive business owners and residents met Wednesday, January 21st at 6:30 p.m. at the Pacific Beach Recreation Center with the collective intent of deciding upon and implementing a variety of strategies aimed at improving both the safety and appeal of Pacific Beach.
Attendees were encouraged to voice their concerns and visions, which were immediately posted at the front of the room for everyone to see. Some of the issues raised included gum and graffiti removal from business-area sidewalks and walls, rent control and renter education programs about “Good Neighbor’’ behavior, surveillance video camera installment on Garnet Avenue, the development of an east-west corridor bike path, rape prevention/education programs, the reduction of bars and improved vigilance against drunk driving, increase in youth events not focused on alcohol, all-inclusive broadband Wi-Fi coverage, and more.
Town Council meetings take place the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Birdie Taylor Library, 4275 Cass Street. The Council welcomes and encourages all community members to attend their monthly meetings: “We want to hear from you and we need your help” were the final words of committee speaker Jerry Hall (pictured).
