La Jolla Shores Association’s latest Zoom meeting saw District 1 Councilmember Barbara Bry give a chilling report on the pandemic’s impact on the City’s budget, while planners vetted a member’s proposal to close off Avenida de la Playa to help restaurants with dining out.

“What’s most pressing on all of us is that we are in the middle of a pandemic the likes of which we have never seen in our lifetimes,” said Bry. “And the financial cost of this health emergency is devastating, unlike anything we’ve ever seen.”

Predicted Bry, “Long term, we’re in trouble. The economy is not going to come back quickly. We’re (also) going to be wearing face masks and doing social distancing for a long time.”

Bry added she’s hearing some restaurateurs saying new dining-in restrictions under the regional re-opening plan are so strict “they feel they’re better off doing take-out than trying to go back and do in-person.”

Pointed out Bry, “I’m truly concerned about our small-businesses. I’m looking at how to restructure (government). With most employees working remotely, how much office space does the City need?

Bry said she is in favor of both a temporary City hiring freeze, and no raises for employees, as budgetary cost-saving measures during this health crisis.

But there was some good news about the pandemic from Bry who noted Dr. Wilma Wooten, the County health official who authored the recent restaurant and retail reopening plan, has said “almost everybody in San Diego who has died from COVID had an underlying health condition, and in some cases, two. Basically, what she says is that if you are healthy, you may get the virus, but that you are going to be able to fight it off. But if you have underlying health conditions like heart disease, hypertension or diabetes, that you are seriously at-risk and you need to be very careful.”

LJSA board member Phil Wise presented a plan for aiding restaurants in reopening along the Shores commercial strip on Avenida de la Playa.

“My concept is to try and help the restaurants on Avenida who will be reopening to get more customers by putting platforms out onto the street to allow more dining space from 5 to 10 p.m.,” he said. “I’ve talked to the restaurant owners, and they seem to be interested in something like this. We need to get a permit to put the platforms in there, and close the street and allow restaurants to serve alcohol on the platforms out in the street.”

Colleague Joe Dicks had a problem with that.

“I’m very concerned about backing this kind of issue without handling the threshold issue of social distancing and other requirements to keep the community healthy,” he said. “It’s a land-use. We can’t increase the concentration of foot traffic until we have some uniform enforcement guidelines. I’m not even sure what the guidelines are anymore.”

LJSA voted to create an ad hoc committee to work with Wise in studying how to implement his platform proposal on Avenida.

I have been married with my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to Dr Emu. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. You can contact him via email: [email protected] He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him through his whats-app number: 2347012841542

Ever since my husband lift me and the kids for the past 2 years, i v'e not been my self I was heath broken a day come when i was  reviewing some reading of how i could forget the depression and Heath broken , i saw a testimony shared by Marina from USA about a spell caster named Dr. Okeke how he use his spell to rebuild any broken marriage or relationship. I contacted Marina to confirm about how Dr. Okeke helped her and she clarified everything to me of how he helped her and that gave me the courage to get in touch with Dr. Okeke for help. Dr. Okeke assured me that my days of sorrows will be over within 48hours after he has finished with his work. I followed his instructions he gave to me because i had the believe, faith, hope and trust in him. Verily i say to you today that i and my husband are back together happy never before and i can proudly say and testify to the world of what Dr. Okeke did for me. Contact him today at  ( [email protected] ) or chat him directly on WhatsApp number at 2348140443360 if you seek his help
