    Donate pet toys, food When Tatum Merrill, a seventh-grader at Pacific Beach Middle, experienced her dog Dezzi dying last year, she decided to turn it into a positive experience by trying to help other animals in need. Merrill and her classmate Mackenzie Brooks organized a pet toy drive for animals in need at the San Diego Humane Society as a community service project. The students set up a box for people to donate treats, toys, clothes and pet accessories at Yogurt on the Rocks, 1886 Garnet Ave. The box will be set up through Dec. 20 and then Merrill and Brooks will donate the items to the San Diego Humane Society. Blood Mobile at Tourmaline Surf Park Pacific Beach Surf Club is partnering with the Tailgaters of Tourmaline and the San Diego Blood Bank to have the Blood Mobile parked and established in the car park of the Tourmaline Surf Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6. There will also be a pancake breakfast. More than 4.5 million people require blood each year in the U.S and Canada. One pint can save up to three lives. Only 37 percent of U.S. population is eligible to donate blood and fewer than 10 percent do annually.

Toy drive at Woodstock’s Pizza  ’Tis the season for giving, and Woodstock’s Pizza is stepping up to the plate. Passionate about giving back to the community they call home, Woodstock’s is on track to raise more than $200,000 in 2018 for worthy charities around San Diego. This December, Woodstock’s is celebrating the spirit of the holidays and benefitting with a month-long fundraiser and one-day toy drive event benefitting Rady’s Children’s Hospital. From 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 14, Woodstock’s Pizza, at 1221 Garnet Ave., will be accepting toy donations at their in-store “gift tree” to be given to Rady’s Children’s patients and the Ronald McDonald House, where many Rady’s patient’s siblings stay. While the greatest need is for new infant and toddler toys, the items must be able to be sterilized for sick children. Santa Saturdays at Belmont Park It’s the most wonderful time of the year at Belmont Park. During Santa Saturdays, guests are invited to share their wish lists and take a free photo next to the beach-themed Christmas tree for a holiday memory. Photos with Santa will be available on Saturdays, through Dec. 22, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Food Court Stage (Santa also accepts wish lists in Spanish).  In partnership with The Salvation Army, Belmont Park will participate in a Free Ride Toy Drive through Dec. 16. With a donation of one unwrapped, brand new toy, guests will receive one free ride of choice. Toys must have a minimum $5 value to redeem a free ride. One ride per person is offered upon redemption. For Christmas shoppers, Belmont Park’s annual pass is available for purchase. The annual pass includes unlimited rides, attractions, discounts and more for a full year of unlimited fun. To learn more about Santa Saturdays, the Free Ride Toy Drive, and annual pass, visit belmontpark.com. San Diego residents may seek permits through online portal As part of his push to speed up the permitting process and give residents access to more City services with the click of a button, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer announced on Dec. 6 the expansion of an online portal (business.sandiego.gov) that will make the application process for single-family home improvements easier and more efficient. San Diego’s new residential feature is an expanded function of the OpenCounter online business portal – an innovative web portal that streamlines the process of locating, expanding and getting permits for a business in the city. San Diego is the largest U.S. city to implement the OpenCounter platform.  With this expansion, OpenCounter will now provide homeowners, contractors and builders with knowledge about the potential permits required and fee estimates. It guides users through the permitting process for single-family home projects, such as building or repairing a secondary structure like a pool or deck; installing solar panels or graywater systems; and upgrading building exteriors like replacing a roof or windows. Pure Water Project receives EPA loan Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer recently joined the Acting Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to officially accept a $614 million federal loan to help finance the first phase of Pure Water San Diego – an innovative water recycling program that will provide one-third of the City’s drinking supply by 2035. With the EPA’s Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act loan, the City will help fund the first phase of the Pure Water San Diego program, which would expand the City’s potable water production capacity to 30 million gallons per day to replace the use of imported water. This additional drinking water supply will save the City money through reduced imported water costs, benefit the environment through reduced discharges into the ocean, and provide a reliable, sustainable water supply for future generations.

This year’s event built on this foundation of excellence as children learned about and created art in different media, such as woodworking, clay sculpting, stamp-making, paper-cutting and origami, still-life drawing and painting, spin art, and 3-D printing. Favorite activities included a sewing station created by Paint Box Art Studio, a wooden peg doll decorating station staffed and supplied by the Mingei Art Museum, and a Banksy-inspired exhibit where children were allowed to graffiti “buildings” in “Barnardsville.” “I really like Art Night; it was really fun,” Barnard first-grader Riley W. said. “My favorite stand was the positive and negative space stand. I really liked cutting things out and pasting them to make art.” Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools - Registration for the Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools’ 2019 SchoolYard Dash 5K and 1 Mile Kids Run is open.

    City creates mobility board to focus on safer and cleaner transportation goals

    A new mobility board has been created by the City of San Diego combining two previously existing bicycle advisory and parking advisory boards under the same roof. It’s a development bicycle advocates Nicole Burgess, District 2’s rep on the previous bicycle advisory board covering the beachfront, and Andy Hanshaw, executive director of San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, are cautiously supporting. “Innovation in transit and increasing competition for the public right-of-way has fundamentally shifted the way we move ourselves around, meaning the decisions we make will have greater impacts on the quality of life of all San Diegans,” said District 3 Councilmember Chris Ward, who spearheaded creation of the new mobility board. “This will build on past successes, while informing future transportation decisions in a holistic, comprehensive manner.” Ward said the new mobility board will aim to provide “safe choices to move around San Diego that facilitate our goals in the Climate Action Plan (CAP) and Vision Zero.”  Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, particularly those involving pedestrians and bicyclists, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. San Diego’s legally binding CAP enacted in 2015 calls for eliminating half of all greenhouse-gas emissions, and for all electricity used in the city, to be from renewable sources by 2035. Ward said the new mobility board will incorporate the work of its predecessors. “I want to reassure parking and bicycle board members that their work will be capitalized on through the guise of the mobility board,” he said adding the process was not “a last-minute thing.” “For more than six months, we have met with stakeholder groups, both private and public,” Ward said. “The challenge is, if you are asking your advisors to help advise decision makers, you need them to answer the same questions, with the same wider perspective, we have to operate under.” Ward added the mayor’s administration has promised to have a city staffer with “the proper skill sets and expertise,” to respond to the new mobility board and address a lot of its goals.  “That’s a huge step forward,” Ward concluded. While supporting the new mobility board in concept, both Burgess and Hanshaw are keeping a watchful eye on its implementation. Burgess has some reservations. “Although I am supportive of Mayor Faulconer's and Chis Ward’s office for good intentions to create a holistic mobility board, I am disappointed with the process and the ordinance that was approved,” she said. “I believe we should have done better, and would have appreciated a more collaborative and inclusive proposal.” Burgess noted she was “proud” of the work the Bicycle Advisory Board accomplished during the past four years noting, “It was the only City board dedicated to creating safer streets for everyone.  As streets have been resurfaced, we have collaborated with City staff to repurpose them with paint to slow traffic, dedicate space, and prioritize active and healthy modes of transportation.” There is a lot to gain — and lose — said Burgess, with the outcome of the newly created mobility board. “There is great potential for San Diego to become a world-class, bicycle- friendly city,” she said while pointing out, “I believe dissolving the Bicycle Advisory Board is a step backward. Nonetheless, I will stay optimistic, and roll with the changes and continue to enjoy my commutes near and far and advocate for a healthy future.” Hanshaw has taken a wait-and-see attitude toward the new mobility board. He pointed out there’s a lot of work to be done to make San Diego more bike-friendly. “The City is facing challenges on a daily basis for implementing its CAP,” said Hanshaw. “I want to believe that, moving forward, the mobility board is going to make things better.” “The underlying goal here is for the City to meet their CAP goals, which are focused on bike, walk and transit, and shifting modes away from single-occupant driving,” Hanshaw added. “We have to be focused on mobility, prioritizing bike, walk and transit, which has to be 50 percent of mode share by 2035. If creation of the mobility board streamlines, or makes more comprehensible, the CAP and its implementation plan, I want to support it.”

    Ho Ho Ho-ing for a good cause – Pacific Beach SantaCon donates to Toys for Tots

    Hundreds of Santas, elves, reindeer – and a few trees – pub-crawled through Pacific Beach on Saturday, Dec. 8 to spread holiday cheer and spirits while donating gifts and raising funds for Toys for Tots. “It has been an amazing turnout,” said Rachel Boles, who organized this year’s SantaCon, after restarting the tradition in Pacific Beach in 2017. “Last year, we had about 100 people. This year we had more than 400 come out.” All those somewhat-sauced Santas donated more than 200 toys and raised more than $2,000 for the Toy for Tots program. “I’m going to be buying a lot of toys for children,” Boles said. “I’m really happy about that.” They also filled restaurants and bars – Tavern at the Beach, Mavericks Beach Club, The Local PB, and Sandbox Pizza – spreading more green around for service workers during a normally slow Saturday. “These places are packed on what is usually a dead Saturday because people are busy with the holidays and college football’s not on,” said Boles, who works for US Foods and has many contacts in the service industry. Boles, who’s originally from south New Jersey, said she was surprised there wasn’t an active SantaCon in Pacific Beach when she moved to San Diego. “It’s huge on the East Coast and in other West Coast cities like San Francisco and LA. I know it gets a bad rap at times, but last year we had no incidents. Hopefully, this year everything goes well.” Boles said that most people she meets are also San Diego transplants with no family here, so they rely on friends during the holidays. “This event is a big deal for me because I can’t always go back east to visit family at Christmas. A lot of these people here can’t either, which is why spending time with your friends is so important – we become family. And today, we’re also helping out other families so they can have a wonderful Christmas,” Boles said.

    The holidays hit the ground running early in Pacific Beach kicking off with Christmas on Crystal Pier Dec. 1, followed by two other events, the San Diego Santa Run and the Holiday Parade, both on Dec.15. “The holiday events create a sense of community, lively action in our streets and storefronts and build community pride,” said Sara Berns, executive director of Discover PB, which is hosting the Christmas 2018 celebration. “Not only does it help create the festive feel of the holidays when the weather here says different, but it is a day to get the entire community connected to our businesses, neighbors, schools and organizations,” Berns said. “Who knows, standing out waiting for the floats to go by or running past in the 5K, you may notice a business you never noticed before from your car.” Held from 2 to 5 p.m. on Dec. 1, Christmas on Crystal Pier highlights feature a sunset tree lighting and photos with Santa.  The pier is also festooned each year with wreaths hung by local businesses and community groups. Wreaths being sold by Discover PB will adorn Crystal Pier through Jan. 1. Wreaths are high visibility given the thousands of visitors who check out the pier each month.  Santa photos will cast $10 or $5 if a donation is made for school supplies benefitting PB schools. Needed school supplies include: Hand sanitizer (big family size bottles), sanitizing wipes, Kleenex boxes, color copy paper 8 by 11 ½ (any color), and white copy paper 8 by 11 1/2, staplers and staples, adult scissors, Post its, white cardstock paper, spiral notebooks, glue sticks and colored pencils and markers. Pictures are first-come, first-served. There is no guarantee your picture will be taken if you arrive after 3:45 p.m. The Holiday Parade starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15 is the centerpiece of the beach community’s annual holiday fest.  This year’s parade theme is “Jingle Bell Rock,” so rock out to your favorite holiday tunes. Replete with community floats, local school bands and Santa wrapping things up, join everyone on Garnet Avenue for a fabulous friends and family event to rejoice in the holidays. Easily PB’s most colorful holiday event, nothing compares with 5,000 red-clad St. Nicks converging in the annual Santa Run preceding the parade on Dec. 15. The run is actually three races, with the 5K Santa Run starting at 10 a.m. There is also a competitive Speedy Santa Mile Race and a Santa’s Little Helper Mile (Dog Run) race for kids age 12 and under. Parents are welcome to join their children. All 5K adult participants receive a Santa suit, hat, short- sleeve jacket, shorts, belt and beard as well as one drink ticket and a pair of San Diego Santa Run sunglasses. Adults in the one-mile races will also receive a Santa hat, sunglasses and complimentary drink ticket. Plan to spend the day participating in the events, just spectating, or knock off some of that holiday shopping at local neighborhood businesses. There is also a PB window decorating contest to the theme of Jingle Bell Rock highlighting everyone’s favorite holiday numbers. The winning window will be featured in the Beach & Bay Press.
