Discover Pacific Beach (DPB) has made new strides in its mission to improve the community by adding 50 new street banners along sections of Garnet Avenue, Mission Boulevard, Mission Bay Drive and around Crown Point to highlight the various activities the area has to offer.

DPB is also letting its member businesses know they have access to the public right-of-way program for such usages as “A” frame signs, displays or sidewalk-café seating.

Details from the DPB meeting in March included discussion on a resolution to support the enforcement of illegal business operations within the district, specifically the medical marijuana dispensaries in Pacific Beach.

The board also discussed its financial arrangement and profit-sharing plan it has with north Pacific Beach resident Mike Spangler of Spangler Event Productions regarding the second annual North PB Sip and Stroll planned for August.

DPB president Elvin Lai provided an update on the fledgling Pacific Beach Parking Committee, which now includes two board members each from the DPB, Pacific Beach Town Council and Pacific Beach Planning Group. There is also a search under way to recruit four at-large members to round out the committee.

In other announcements, the first annual CicloSDias is scheduled for Sunday, March 30 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and DPB will host its annual dinner and business awards March 27.

During the “community partners reports” portion of the meeting:

• Sara Boot introduced herself to the board and announced she will be running for now-Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s vacant District 2 City Council seat in November.

• 30-year Pacific Beach resident and charter DPB member Don Mullen announced his interest in applying for the special City Council appointment to temporarily fill the District 2 seat between April and after the November election, when the winner of that race is sworn in.

• Liz Studebaker, the business improvement district advocate with the Mayor’s Office, reported the city is looking into locations for its bike-share program that will not impact local bike shops.

• Julio DeGuzman of the City Attorney’s Office gave a report on the Pacific Beach Community Court that helps offenders with minor infractions perform community service and have their offenses expunged.

The monthly DPB meetings take place the first Tuesday of each month at noon at 1503 Garnet Ave.
