2020: The Year in Review

It was a tough year. We didn’t get to do some of our favorite things, like Concerts on the Green. But PBTC still had a significant positive impact on our community. Here’s what we accomplished.

San Diego Fire Dept. Releases PSA on Beach Fires

The past year has seen an increase in illegal fires on our community beaches. People are lighting fires that are not enclosed in required fire rings and that contain sharp objects such as nails and glass. Residents are bothered by excessive smoke and noise, and they are calling 911 to report the fires, which pulls SDFD resources away from emergency calls. In response, the SDFD created a public service announcement video to explain why some types of fires create a huge problem for residents and first responders and how to use non-emergency phone numbers to report them. Watch the video now!

What Does the PBTC Do?

PBTC connects residents with our elected officials at monthly public forums, advocates for the betterment and beautification of PB with City Council and other governing bodies, supports local students with scholarships and awards, organizes Concerts on the Green and the annual PAESAN community BBQ honoring our first responders, beautifies PB with the annual Graffiti Removal Day and Enhancement Committee community cleanups, and much more. PBTC also owns and maintains the Rose Creek Cottage, a PB gem that is available for events.
