    Dog owner’s tails were wagging as the San Diego City Council Environment Committee May 23 voted 4-0 for their preferred option in redeveloping Fiesta Island. The issue will now go to the full City Council Monday, June 17 at 2 p.m. in council chambers. It will also have to pass muster with the California Coastal Commission. Government agencies have gone back-and-forth on choosing between two alternatives: Option B favored by Fiesta Island Dog Owners, and Option A espoused by non-motorized boaters including kayakers and paddle boarders. Option A would divide the manmade island with a road and reduce access for off-leash dog park users, while providing storage and beach access for personal watercraft. Option B would keep the island intact and undivided while increasing the fenced, off-leash area, which would be bisected by a road if Option A is ultimately selected. Either option is proposed as an amendment to the Mission Bay Park Master Plan to update the land uses and vision for 470-acre, multi-use Fiesta Island. City staffer Sarah Osborne told the council committee that either option would “amend and update the Mission Bay Park master plan with a new vision and conceptual plan.” Emotions ran high on both sides during lengthy public testimony. Speaking for Option A, James Gonzalez said, “It’s about sharing, not someone winning or losing. The solution can be a win-win for all.” Added Gonzalez, “There are 17 off-leash dog parks in San Diego. … We are dog owners too. The paddling community needs a permanent home.” “The San Diego Audubon Society supports Option A,” testified Andrew Meyer.“ “Tens of thousands of people use this open space 365 days a year from dawn to dusk,” testified Kathy Parrish of FIDO for Option B. “We come from every demographic, every ethnicity and economic circumstance. Please don’t pave our paradise.” “This is not an issue of taking versus sharing,” testified FIDO president Carolyn Chase arguing if Option A is chosen, “You’ll be turning seven acres of multi-use today over to exclusive use by one group forever.” How many of you love Fiesta Island the way it is?,” asked another speaker. “I’m in support of doing everything we can to keep Fiesta Island as natural as possible,” said committee chair Dr. Jen Campbell of District 2, who moved to approve dog lover’s Option B. Committee member Councilman Scott Sherman, a dog owner, said he’s been going to Fiesta Island since he was a kid. “Being a boater and a paddler as well, I like to try and find a compromise,” Sherman said proposing an alternative for non-motorized boaters. “The nearby South Shores boat launch is both underutilized, and the best place to practice. This can be a win-win for everybody,” he said. “I appreciate that we had two options and the passion and commitment on both sides,” said committee member Barbara Bry of District 1. “This is a most opportune time to preserve Fiesta Island as a magic place to San Diegans for generations to come.” Pointing out her pooch, Luna, is frequently mentioned on her Facebook page, committee member Vivian Moreno of District 8 said, “I truly understand why so many dog owners use Fiesta Island.”

    One of the ultimate “American foods” is the hamburger. Almost every restaurant menu includes some kind of burger made of beef, bison or beans, and topped with everything from bacon and eggs to avocado and aïoli, while served on a variety of brioche, buttermilk or ciabatta buns.

    It’s official, City’s new scooter regulations to start July 1

    On May 14, the City Council unanimously approved the new electric scooter regulations, which will go into effect July 1. The new rules will decrease the allowable speed of electric scooters from 15 to 8 mph on the boardwalk, and to 3 mph in high-traffic areas with the use of geofencing technology. Scooters are to be banned from parking near hospitals, schools, near Petco Park, and on the boardwalk. Electric scooters and bikes are prohibited from riding on city sidewalks. Key components of the regulations include: ·Speed limits: In specific geofenced areas, operators will slow scooters to 8 mph. Three of the geofenced areas are pedestrian-only and operators will slow scooters to 3 mph with a push message notifying riders to leave that area. ·Geofencing will be in effect for beach-area boardwalks, Balboa Park, NTC Park, Mission Bay Park, Petco Park and the pedestrian-only locations, including North/South Embarcadero, MLK Jr. Promenade, and La Piazza della Famiglia. ·Staging: Operators will no longer be able to stage scooters and e-bikes on sidewalks in downtown. The City has identified – and is currently installing – 330 on-street dockless parking corrals throughout downtown where staging is allowed. ·In the beach areas, operators are only permitted to stage in groups of up to four, with 40 feet in between each group. The City will identify corral locations in the beach areas and, once installed, will require their use.The City also will conduct an evaluation of locations throughout San Diego where designated parking corrals would be beneficial and, working with the City Council and communities, install more. ·Rider parking: Operators will prohibit riders from ending a ride in specific geofenced areas, including beach area boardwalks. ·Education: Consistent messages about local and state laws in smartphone applications will be required. As will on-device labeling about age requirements and how riding on the sidewalk is illegal. ·Per device fee: A per device fee of $150 annually will be assessed. A reduction of $15 per device will be offered for operators offering a qualified equity program. ·Equity programs may include discounts, equitable distribution, credit-card free unlock or mobile-device free unlock. ·Data sharing: A variety of data will be shared about ridership, parking, paths of travel and more to assist the City in transportation planning, Climate Action Plan reporting and enforcement. ·Indemnification/insurance: Operators will be required to indemnify the City from liability and to hold a $2 million per occurrence, $4 million aggregate and $4 million umbrella insurance policy. ·Performance bond: Each operator will be required to pay a “Safety Deposit” – $65 for each device in fleet – to be held in the event the company leaves the market without its devices.  The ordinance will charge dockless companies an annual $150 per-device fee. The City noted that should act as a de facto cap on scooter numbers. “If we could do a rewind, I would have banned this entire thing from the city from the start without regulation,” District 2 Councilmember Dr. Jen Campbell said previously. District 1 Councilmember Barbara Bry said she plans to propose an ordinance to ban electric scooters from the boardwalk.

    Will this be enforced? I’m doubtful.

    Riding escooters on the sidewalk and multiple riders on a single escooter are already illegal, yet I’ve never seen law enforcement react to these common occurrences.

    No, nothing will be enforced. Police have already said they don't have the manpower to enforce the new regulations and that they have been told by their higher ups that ticketing these infractions is very low priority.

    Typical SD City politics - Ready, Shoot, Aim. I think that this is a start - of course, all of the policing seems to be done via the operators via their technology. What recourse are we going to have if they aren't following the speed limits? As a parent to an 8 year old - I would love them being banned on the boardwalk - it is so unsafe with all the joy riders now - we watched 2 kids aged 10 zooming in and around walkers, cyclists, strollers, seniors etc.
