Vehicle Habitations and the search for solutions will be a focus of our PBTC forum on Wednesday, March 20, 6:30pm at Crown Point Elementary, 4033 Ingraham St. In addition to hearing from residents on how the recent repeal of our vehicle habitation ordinance is affecting our community, we’ll be joined by Teresa Smith, CEO with “Dreams for Change,” which operates 2 parking lots in San Diego. We’ll also be joined by participants in their Safe Parking Program.

Another topic of discussion will be the need for off-leash dog areas in Pacific Beach. We’ll hear from dog owners in our community about possible options.

Community Crop Swap

Two enterprising PB Middle School students are holding a “crop swap” where we can trade our excess fruit and veggies with other local growers.

Avoid waste, and get to know other local growers, and exchange your excess for someone else’s delectable edibles!
