Community Update 1. Junk House Gastro-Pub is Closed 2. Update on New San Carlos Library Design & Alvarado Creek Storm Drain in Grantville at NCPI

Happy New Year Del Cerro

1) The Junk House Gastro-Pub located on Adobe Falls Road off of Waring Road, which had promoted, and had large photos on its interior walls showing the graffiti at Adobe Falls, has closed its doors as of December 31. Hopefully this is another piece to the puzzle for curtailing the promotion of Adobe Falls and all its graffiti.

2) Mark Your Calendar – on Wednesday, January 11, 6:30 p.m. at the Tifereth Israel Synagogue in San Carlos, the Navajo Community Planners Inc. will have two power point presentations as part of its January meeting; the first will be the initial report from the city’s consultant for the Alvarado Creek Storm Drain and resolving its flooding issues as a major step for the redevelopment of Grantville, and the second on the new design for the long awaited San Carlos Library. The meeting is open to the public and there will be opportunities for questions and answers for both presentations.
The agenda for the NCPI meeting is on the NCPI Website

City of San Diego has two new websites; Streets & Budget for your viewing pleasure!

The City of San Diego recently launched two new websites to provide more information for residents and property owners.

1) streets.sandiego.gov provides overlays of pending and completed repairs to streets within the city. It is in “alpha” stage, so there may be a bug now and then.

2) budget.sandiego.gov provides in depth information about the current operating budget expenditures. Just as an FYI, the current adopted budget for Fiscal Year 2017 is $2,966,812,778

Another successful community clean up at the Pasatiempo Open Space Park on Top of Del Cerro

Hello Del Cerro!
On Saturday, November 12, Dan and Cathy Northcutt held another successful quarterly community cleanup at the Pasatiempo Open Space Park on the top of Del Cerro. Several years ago their firm, Team Northcutt Realty, adopted the park through the city’s “Adopt a Park” program. Cathy sent the following email to those who participated. I thought it was worth posting so more of us could plan to participate in one or some of next year’s cleanups. The open space park is across the street from the 10.5 acres of undeveloped city property on top of Del Cerro. Jay Wilson, DCAC Board Member
=====================================================================================================================================
(email from Cathy Northcutt to Saturday’s volunteers)
Dear Friends,

We would like to thank everyone who came out to help clean up trash at Pasatiempo today. We estimate we collected 64 lbs. glass, 5 lbs. plastic, 5 lbs. cans, and 112 lbs of trash. It was definitely in need of attention and together we made an impact!
We would like to thank everyone who came out to help clean up trash at Pasatiempo today.

2017 Clean Up Schedule:
February 11, 8:30-10:30 am
May 13, 8:30-10:30 am
August 12, 8:30-10:30 am
November 11, 8:30-10:30 am

Enjoy the holiday season and we hope to see you in 2017!
