Welcome Back Neighbors!

Thank you to the PB Planning Group’s Chair, Karl Rand and Board for the first ever collaborative joint meeting on the “Diamond Slow Street” that took place at last month’s meeting.  I truly appreciate the cooperative effort of both Boards and even more the PB community members who came out to voice their opinion. The City now knows we work together to promote a healthy community.

PB Community Members of the Month

Rex Mehran and Mason Morgan

These two Pacific Beach Middle School students and PB residents are working on a project to get the city to repave the southern section of Ingraham street. They took the time to document the road and measure the potholes—one was three feet wide and five inches deep! They also found metal road hazards and broken sections of sidewalk.

If you support the work of these PB crusaders you can help them out by signing their petition to repave Ingraham! They hope to get over 1,000 signatures. Their petition can be found at  

Rex and Mason hope to have this issue reach Jennifer Cambell and her fellow city council members. You can help them achieve this goal by signing the petition or submitting an order form to repave Ingraham street through

Community Updates

PB Police Report: 

  • In response to the number of shootings at Belmont Park, SDPD Northern division has implemented a plan to have more officers in that area.

  • Officers are continuously addressing the illegal bonfires and drinking that occurs on our beaches.

  • SDPD Northern division has also been working overtime in the La Jolla/Pacific Beach area to address the recent home burglary series.

  • The vendor ordinance is still in review. As it stands now this is an administrative violation, which means city code officials, not SDPD, will be enforcing the new vendor ordinance. There is word from Mayor Gloria’s office, however, that they are going to be providing the city code enforcement team with funding and training so they can be equipped to deal with this new ordinance. 

Garnet Block Captains: 

  • The Garnet Block Captains have been working with Discover PB to address and resolve the overflowing trash cans on Garnet.

  • Block Captains have also been doing an amazing job preserving and caring for all the trees and plants that grow on Garnet.
