    The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority Board certified the final environmental impact report for the Airport Development Plan, which envisions replacement of the 53-year-old Terminal 1 at San Diego International Airport. “Today we took an important vote that will help ensure our airport can accommodate expected passenger growth well into the future and ensure our customers and their families are treated to a better airport experience than today’s Terminal 1 can provide,” said April Boling, Airport Authority Board chair. “The plan will also ensure the airport can continue to function as an economic engine for the region for decades to come.” The new Terminal 1 would feature 30 gates (up from 19) and represent a significant upgrade for passengers, offering more gate-area seating, restaurants and shops and additional security checkpoints with more lanes and a host of energy-efficiency upgrades. The Airport Development Plan would also include numerous roadway and transportation improvements enhancing airport access. A proposed on-airport entry road would remove an estimated 45,000 cars per day from Harbor Drive. The Airport Authority has been working with SANDAG, the Port District, the City of San Diego, MTS, NCTD, Caltrans, the County of San Diego and other regional agencies to assist in their efforts to analyze circulation around the airport, as well as to determine the best transit solution for carrying people to the airport. The Airport Authority has set aside space between the terminals for a transit station that could accommodate any regional transit system chosen by SANDAG and other regional planning agencies. In addition, the Airport Authority will launch an all-electric shuttle fleet that will carry transit riders to and from the Old Town Transit Center. This service is scheduled to start in mid-2020. Unanimous approval of the environmental report was not perceived as good news by everyone, including airport watchdog and Point Loma resident Casey Schnoor. Referring to the document as “inadequate,” Schnoor said, “They’re (Airport Authority Board) railroading [the EIR] through,” while warning, “The only remedy is litigation.” An outspoken critic of the estimated $3 billion costs for rebuilding Terminal 1, Schnoor has long contended that the Airport Authority has underestimated the forecasted growth rate, which he argues will force San Diego International Airport “to reach operational capacity in the very near future.” Pointing to "significant and unavoidable" impacts listed in the airport EIR, Schnoor said that should serve as a red flag for residents. The Airport Development Plan is aligned with the City’s Climate Action Plan and will provide expanded electric vehicle charging infrastructure, a bicycle path on Harbor Drive and new incentives to promote alternative commuting habits among employees. The plan also focuses on air quality. “Our emissions are now among the lowest in the country,” said Kim Becker, president/CEO of the Airport Authority. “In fact, we are one of only two airports in North America to achieve a carbon neutrality certification under the Airport Carbon Accreditation program.” The Airport Authority has also completed a plan to address impacts from higher sea levels, more intense rainfall and extreme heat. Part of this plan includes a partnership with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to monitor rising sea levels using advanced sensors in San Diego Bay. Additionally, there is a plan to expand stormwater systems that provide the ability to capture and reuse more than 39 million gallons of rain annually. Schnoor also criticized local politicians for “not stepping up and representing the concerns of the community. There are about 15,000 people who are going to wake up in three years and be really mad because the politicians didn’t do anything.” Schnoor charges the airport final EIR fails to adequately compensate local residents for noise and other impacts associated with airport travel in an uneven trade-off “to enhance the (airport) passenger experience.” Schnoor argues that the Airport’s Quieter Homes Program to dampen sound in homes in the airline flight path keeping them under the 65-decibel sound limit has long waiting lists, which he insists will only become longer once Terminal 1 is completed bringing heavier air traffic to San Diego.  San Diego International Airport is the busiest single-runway commercial airport in the United States. It has seen record growth in passenger volumes over the past six years.  The impacts of this growth are most evident in Terminal 1. When it opened in 1967, it served 2.5 million passengers that year. In 2019, the same facility served more than 12 million. Overall, the airport served roughly 25 million passengers in 2019. More than 1 million of them were international passengers. In July 2019, the Airport Authority announced an unprecedented 10-year lease agreement with its airline partners that included airline pre-approval of more than $500 million total for off-airport and on-airport transportation improvements. Next steps for the Terminal 1 expansion project include federal environmental review and consideration of a coastal development permit by the California Coastal Commission. The goal is to break ground on the new terminal in 2021 and open the first phase (19 gates) in 2024. For more information, visit san.org/plan.

    If San Diego is serious about becoming a world class city it needs a REAL international airport and a business & tourism focus. this "band-aid" will further handcuff San Diego's Economy.

    Move the airport inland, redevelop the current location for tourism (hotels, stadium, etc...) and connect an inland location (Miramar?) with a world class transit system.

    you want more good jobs, better housing and world class City... time to have some REAL vision.

    Valley Farm Market brings specialty meats, organic produce and craft beers to La Jolla

    While Costco, Target and Walmart dominate the business of mainstream groceries, Valley Farm Market is trying to stay ahead of the commodity competition by not only offering USDA Prime Choice meats and organic produce, but also specialty brand sauces, snacks and even craft beer.

    Based in Spring Valley, the single unit grocery store has been family-owned for 64 years, carrying local and unique out-of-stand brands for cheese, mustard, candy, drinks, chips, spice blends, and nearly 1,000 different beers of which roughly 70% are local San Diego brands.

    “If it’s distributed in San Diego, we have it,” said Derek Marso, the third-generation owner for his grandfather’s market.

    But Valley Farm Market is no longer a party of one, having just expanded to La Jolla at 6902 La Jolla Blvd.

    “Valley Farm wouldn’t last as a commodity store,” said Marso. “The buying power of places like Costco are so massive. What we needed to do was offer people something they couldn’t find at any other store.”

    Marso’s grandfather Felix, also known as “Curly,” was a butcher in Chicago before he and his wife Eleanor moved their family from the windy city to the Golden State, specifically San Diego. Felix opened up Valley Farm as a family-run, community-focused grocery store in 1956. In the 70s, the business was then passed down to Marso’s father and aunt as Marso perused professional football with a full-ride scholarship to Kansas State and a launch pad kickstarting Marso’s career as a defensive end in the NFL. But, eventually, Marso too found a home in his family’s grocery store.

    “I had to figure out who I was apart from the sport,” said Marso, who bought the store from his parents in 2008. “It’s been great ever since, creating a culture that’s your own and getting employees excited to come to work.”

    Just before Marso took the reins, Valley Farm Market was in bad shape, Marso saying his family was “doing all they could to keep the doors open.” That’s when Marso came up with the idea to have the store sell only specialty products such as Yai's Thai Red Thai Coconut Curry, Vegan Rob's Dragon Puffs, Dudley’s Apple Walnut and Cinnamon Fruit Bars and Fruits Of the Nile Nectar’s Gourmet Mango Orange drinks. Being an avid fan of BBQ, Marso also opened up Valley Farm Market BBQ Shack inside the market. Customers could come to a small window on the side of the market and order Barbeque brisket, pulled pork, tri-tip and additional BBQ sides by the pound.

    Last year, Valley Farm’s BBQ was named “San Diego’s Best BBQ” by iHeartRadio. The market’s meat is free of antibiotics and hormones, with the animals raised on a vegetarian diet.

    “We’re not a transactional business,” said Marso. “We’re here to be a part of the San Diego neighborhoods. People come into this store and they understand what we do, how we do it and why we do it. It’s not just about staying afloat; we want to support farmers and companies who are doing food right.”

    Off North Lane, across from Rigoberto’s Taco Shop, Valley Farm’s seaside La Jolla location features a full-service kitchen — Valley Farm Market Kitchen — with tuna poke nachos with wonton chips, veggie sandwiches fish tacos and a dozen more sandwich and entree choices. In a couple weeks, the new branch will also begin selling craft beers, wine and other alcoholic beverages.

    “All we have to do is listen to our community and hear what they want,” said Marso, whose team annually hosts Del Mar’s Turf & Surf BBQ Championships as well as Spring Valley Tailgate and BBQ Festival, where all proceeds are donated to underprivileged children. “Having my own business affords me the luxury of being able to pivot faster than other, bigger stores and invest in our customers. I don’t have to go through meetings or CEOs to get a requested product into the store, or to replace items on our menus. We’re extremely excited about our expansion to La Jolla and the chance to build our family.”

    UC San Diego study: Shutdown of coal-fired plants in U.S. saves lives, improves crops
    Jan 12, 2020 | 19716 views | 2 2 comments | 1 1 recommendations | email to a friend | print
    Between 2005 and 2016, the shift away from coal saved an estimated 26,610 lives and 570 million bushels of crops The decommissioning of coal-fired power plants in the continental United States has reduced nearby pollution and its negative impacts on human health and crop yields, according to a new University of California San Diego study. The findings published this week in Nature Sustainability use the U.S. transition in recent years from coal towards natural gas for electric power generation to study the local impacts of coal-fired unit shutdowns. While the shift from coal to natural gas has reduced carbon dioxide emissions overall, it has also changed local pollution levels at hundreds of areas around the country. In particular, the burning of coal creates particulate matter and ozone in the lower atmosphere — often experienced as “smog” —which can affect humans, plants and regional climate. These pollutants (aerosols, ozone, and other compounds) from coal-burning can wreak havoc on human health when inhaled, and also have damaging effects on plant life. They also alter the local climate by blocking incoming sunlight. The author, Jennifer Burney, associate professor of environmental science at the UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy, combined data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on electric power generation with satellite and surface measurements from the EPA as well as NASA to gauge changes in local pollution before and after coal-fired unit shut-downs. She also studied changes in county-level mortality rates and crop yields using data from the Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Burney found that between 2005 and 2016, the shutdown of coal-fired units saved an estimated 26,610 lives and 570 million bushels of corn, soybeans, and wheat in their immediate vicinities. The inverse calculation, estimating the damages caused by coal plants left in operation over that same time period, suggests they contributed to 329,417 premature deaths and the loss of 10.2 billion bushels of crops, roughly equivalent to half of year’s typical production in the U.S. “The unique contribution of this study is its scope and the ability to connect discrete technology changes—like an electric power unit being shut down — to local health, agriculture and regional climate impacts,” Burney said. “We hear a lot about the overall greenhouse gas and economic impacts of the transition the U.S. has undergone in shifting from coal towards natural gas, but the smaller-scale decisions that make up this larger trend have really important local consequences. The analysis provides a framework for communities to more thoroughly and accurately assess the costs and benefits of local investments in energy infrastructure.” Burney added that although there are considerable benefits of decommissioning older coal-fired units, the newer natural gas units are not entirely benign. Natural gas units are associated with increased pollution levels; although different than the pollutant mix from coal-fired units, and more research is required to fully understand their impacts. Burney concludes that “policymakers often think about greenhouse gas emissions as a separate problem from air pollution, but the same processes that cause climate change also produce these aerosols, ozone, and other compounds that cause important damages. This study provides a more robust accounting for the full suite of emissions associated with electric power production. If we understand the real costs of things like coal better, and who is bearing those costs, it could potentially lead to more effective mitigation and formation of new coalitions of beneficiaries across sectors.” The full study, “The downstream air pollution impacts of the transition from coal to natural gas in the United States,” can be found at nature.com/articles/s41893-019-0453-5.

    What issues will La Jolla face in 2020?

    La Jollans have a lot to look forward to — and much to be concerned about — as we’ve turned the corner on a new year.

    There is certainly no shortage of hot-button issues to be dealt with, everything from regulating short-term vacation rentals (STVRs) to regulating electric scooters. 

    By year’s end there will be a new mayor, and a couple of new council members, including District 1, where City Council President Pro Tem Barbara Bry is vacating her seat to make a mayoral bid.

    La Jolla Village News asked civic leaders in the Jewel to gaze ahead in 2020 and give us their take and what can and should be done to improve the quality of life for all San Diegans.

    “I see a continuation of the improvements in the Maintenance Assessment District,” said Ed Witt, board president for the La Jolla MAD, which became active in October 2019. “We have a lot of work to do as a board with adding new members and establishing committees, plus all the continued ‘enhancing La Jolla.’ We'll continue to listen to the community and to refine our processes with our vendors to improve efficiencies and the final product [keeping LJ clean].”

    Added Witt, “As the year unfolds, we'll learn from our successes and where we need to improve. We thank the citizens in the district for the trust they've put in us and we look forward to a full year of Enhancing La Jolla.”

    Ann Dynes, president of La Jolla Parks and Beaches, Inc., also had community beautification high on her advisory group’s to-do list for 2020. 

    “The role of the MAD will be a significant development for residents of the Village and patrons of the business district of La Jolla, nothing prescient about that,” said Dynes. “In the new decade, La Jollans will need to be proactive in dealing with populist pressures such as sidewalk vendors, personal mobility devices, increased density, higher buildings, overtourism, STVRs and overhead noise, if we want to maintain any semblance of the ‘coastal village’ which most of us appreciate.”

    Dynes pointed out such populist pressures “are antithetical to our current way of living, and we need to pay attention to them if we want to at least try to manage their impact.”

    Dynes added it is also important for La Jollans in the new year to “vote for political representatives who have a proven record of advocating for La Jolla residents, which would be a good start in 2020.”

    District 1 City Council member Barbara Bry sees maintaining local control of planning, and reigning in scooters, as two challenges lying ahead in 2020.

    “I will continue to oppose the corporatization of our neighborhoods, which is evident with both the scooter and short-term vacation rental industry as well as proposed state legislation that would take away local control of land-use planning,” said Bry. “State legislation already took away our ability to require adult scooter riders to wear helmets, and tragically we are seeing an increase in traumatic head injuries, and the city is being named in lawsuits. In contrast, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo vetoed scooter legislation because it did not require riders to wear helmets.” 

    Janie Emerson, chair of La Jolla Shores Association, believes the city needs to be more neighborhood-focused in community planning. 

    “My biggest concern is that the city is going Big Brother on us,” Emerson said. “They just want to have one policy because that makes it easy. What’s happening is that the neighborhoods are being destroyed by this one-size-fits-all attitude. The beauty of the city is that we are so diverse and our neighborhoods have such wonderful texture, culture and depth.”

    Emerson believes that “runaway density” and economic sustainability are two other issues the city move forward on in 2020. 

    “We don’t have the infrastructure to support more density,” she said. “We also need to become as ‘green’ as possible.”

    Coastal landscape architect Jim Neri gave his wish list for 2020.

    “I’d like to see the bike path right-of-way [between La Jolla High and Bird Rock] dedicated linear parkland,” said Neri. “This is important public open space that connects our community and it needs to be protected. It’s time to give identity to those public coastal access easements that run between residences to the shore, using simple signs customized to each neighborhood. Recognition of these unique access ways by name will improve neighborhood identity and deter encroachment.”

    Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego is celebrating the fifth anniversary of their rescued loggerhead sea turtle’s arrival with the first-ever “Turtleversary” on Jan. 11-12, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 2300 Expedition Way in La Jolla.

    The family-friendly “shell-ebration” will be a fun-filled weekend of sea turtle-themed activities, crafts and marine reptile science.  

    Guests are encouraged to get hands-on with sea turtle biofacts, learn about local sea turtle research, and get an insider’s look at how the aquarium’s sea turtle is trained and cared for. 

    The loggerhead’s story of perseverance, and the technological advances made to ensure her continued survival, have inspired people worldwide. 

    Our collaborations with our colleagues have inspired students and researchers alike,” said Jennifer Nero Moffatt, the aquarium’s senior director of animal care, science and conservation. “Sea turtles hold a special place in our hearts and need our protection; all seven species are in danger from numerous environmental impacts. Our guests are able to get close to our loggerhead sea turtle and feel a sense of wonder for our ocean planet.”

    Birch Aquarium’s female loggerhead sea turtle was found injured and sick in a power plant outflow canal in New Jersey. After rescue, she was nursed back to health at South Carolina Aquarium and was deemed non-releasable as the medical teams believed she would not survive on her own. 

    Birch Aquarium took in the sea turtle in November 2014, and she was revealed to the public in January 2015. Since then she has grown significantly and now weighs 215 pounds.

    Birch Aquarium’s turtle made international news in 2018 for the ​3D-printed prosthetic that fits like a puzzle piece into her shell​. This groundbreaking brace was the first of its kind for a sea turtle shell and has now successfully mitigated the abnormal shell growth.

    All ​Turtleversary​ activities are included in admission, which is $19.50 for adults, $15 for children ages 3 to 17. Children 2 and under are free. Annual memberships are also available. 

    Perched on a bluff overlooking the ocean, Birch Aquarium is home to nearly 6,000 animals and features the groundbreaking work of Scripps scientists, as well as conservation breeding programs and interactive exhibits. Birch Aquarium’s mission is to connect understanding to protecting our ocean planet, which the aquarium achieves by providing engaging, hands-on learning opportunities for nearly 500,000 guests as well as more than 50,000 pre-K-12 students each year.
