  • Solana Beach seeks electricity options

  • Last month, Solana Beach announced the hunt for a service provider to help launch the county’s first local power program, which aims to curb greenhouse gases. This month, a war on community choice aggregation, as it’s called, could begin.

  • Guns aimed at Solana Beach cheap housing

  • 10 units of affordable housing built on a parking lot in Solana Beach should not be built because “affordable housing does not belong at the coast,” according to the Arizona resident who invested in the neighboring timeshare.

  • The beach belongs to all of us

  • The Surfrider Foundation announced Wednesday (February 17) that it will join in the defense of the City of Solana Beach, which was sued in April 2013 by a group of bluff-top homeowners. The suit was brought after the city enacted policies that made it harder for the homeowners to use concrete to shore up bluffs.

  • De facto seawall denied

  • Despite a push by San Diego County supervisor Greg Cox to approve it, on January 14 the California Coastal Commission shot down the Solana Beach & Tennis Club’s attempt to get permission to fill in five sea caves on the ocean bluff with concrete.

  • Solana Reef

  • In an effort to slow erosion at Fletcher Cove, a popular strip of coastline in Solana Beach, the United States Army Corps of Engineers proposes constructing an artificial offshore reef. The reef's main purpose would be to prevent heavy storms and high tides from taking sand off the beach and lessening the impact high surf would inflict on the nearby bluffs.

  • Teaming History, Heaping Plates

  • Seems that, once upon a time, the good folks of Rancho Santa Fe decided they needed someplace where all their Mexican workers could live, close enough to easily man the kitchens and adjust the sprinkler systems, but not so close that the kids would go to the same schools as the offspring of Rancho Santa Fe’s elite. And so Eden Gardens, La Colonia, was born.
  • By Ed Bedford, July 8, 2009
  • Until 1977 it was Tri-City Roller Rink

  • With the recent closure of Solana Beach’s Antique Warehouse, in the Cedros Design District, the 35-year old business brings up memories of years gone by. Not necessarily from only the customers and renters of the 100 booths that sold old stuff, but also from the building’s original incarnation.

Antique Warehouse in Solana Beach. “To antique malls, public enemy number one is e-Bay.”
  • Party's Over

  • During the May 27 meeting of the Solana Beach City Council, councilmembers made permanent a ban outlawing brews, wine, and cocktails, making dry the last of San Diego County’s beaches during busy summer months. (Del Mar allows alcohol consumption during the winter months.)

  • Solana Beach

  • What makes Solana Beach interesting for me is not only the Hispanic history, which infuses the area with words of Spanish origin: Rios, Cedros, and Granados (rivers, cedars, and pomegranate trees), but that the town, because of these roots, has adopted the feeling of a zócalo — where people walk just to walk and to talk to friends and neighbors, and they don’t rush to get anywhere in particular.

  • Solana Beach’s Financial Straits

  • Back in the 1920s, Colonel Ed Fletcher took his brother in-law to the cliffs overlooking the ocean on his newly purchased land in what is now Solana Beach. Fletcher armed his brother-in-law with a fire hose and instructed him to make a beach access. It took three months to erode the cliffs down to the ocean, making what is now Fletcher Cove, Solana Beach’s main beach access.

  • Visit the uncrowded San Dieguito Park, just east of Solana Beach

  • While late-afternoon traffic snarls and tempers flare on North County's Interstate 5 and at the "merge," just inland lies an oasis of tranquillity: San Dieguito Park. Not to be confused with the huge San Dieguito River Park emerging along a 50-mile-long strip of wildland centered on the San Dieguito River, San Dieguito Park is a relatively small county-run regional facility.
