City Council to Receive Update on Stand-Up Paddling Ordinance

The City Council will receive an update regarding the regulation of commercial Stand-Up Paddling activity at its meeting on Tuesday, October 7 at 6:00 p.m. The commercial SUP regulations took effect in July 2014, and were intended to improve safety and reduce neighborhood impacts associated with commercial, for-profit SUP activity, including classes, tours and instruction. Those who have an interest in the topic are encouraged to attend the meeting.

South Laguna Post Office Signs
9/25/2014  The South Laguna Post Office is not used as much as it could be, possibly because it is not easy to see or get to. This has raised concerns that the U.S. Postal Service might eliminate the facility. Last week the City installed directional signs to help those who might not be familiar with the area to find the Post Office. There is one sign in each direction of Coast Highway in advance of Second Avenue and one sign at the corner of Second Avenue and Virginia Way.
