Wildland Fire Protection Information

Hello Del Cerro: With the Wildland Fire season upon us, and noting the devastation in communities in Orange County and Northern California, here is information from the City of San Diego’s Fire-Rescue Department for “Ready, Set, Go!.”

No one knows when or where the next major wildfire will occur in our region. But it is a question of when — not if — it will happen. That’s why San Diego Fire-Rescue has partnered with the International Association of Fire Chiefs to create the Ready, Set, Go! Wildland Fire Action Guide. We hope you will read the guide, and follow its advice.” Here is the link to the information.

Stay Safe, and BE PREPARED – there is an extensive amount of canyons adjacent to Del Cerro that have not burned in decades.

Thank you,
DCAC Board of Directors

Crime update for Princess Del Cerro – Friday evening, October 6

Hello Del Cerro – There was a posting on NextDoor Princess Del Cerro stating there was a police report indicating a robbery with a weapon on Friday evening in the 5800 block of Lance.

I contacted John Steffen, our Police Department Community Relations Officer for all of the Navajo Communities for an update. His response is below for your reference and referral.

Good morning Jay,
It was actually a Robbery and not a Burglary. The victim had just pulled into his driveway when the suspect approached and demanded his money. There was no gun involved. As I get more information I will let you know.

Planning Commission votes 5-0 in support of 24 homes along College Avenue

Despite a strong showing from Del Cerro residents, and solid testimony from a number of residents, on Thursday, September 14, the Planning Commission voted 5-0 to support the project. It is obvious the city’s interest for in-fill housing is a priority. The project meets the city’s requirements, and that is what the commissioners relied upon to justify their vote. To the commissioners, 24 homes is an insignificant impact on our community.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend the meeting and state their position in opposition before the Planning Commission.

The next, and final step, is the project will go before City Council. The date for City Council action has not been set. Now that it will be a docketed item for the City Council, you may contact the members of the City Council to state your position and encourage the councilmembers to vote against the project.

Thank you,
Jay Wilson, Secretary
Del Cerro Action Council

ColRich Hearing at City of San Diego Planning Commission –

Good afternoon Del Cerro:

I was just informed the Planning Commission has docketed the ColRich project (24 homes south of the Chevron Station on College Avenue) for next Thursday, September 14.

The agenda for the planning commission meeting is not posted at this time (Thursday, September 7, 12:55 pm. Meetings being at 9:00 a.m. in the City Council Chambers – 12th floor of City Hall at 202 C Street. I will keep checking the Planning Commission website for the posting of the agenda.
Here is a Link to the Planning Commission Agenda page

I am following up with Mark Rawlins, the Chair of the Del Cerro Action Council regarding a presentation against the project. We can certainly use a show of support for the opposition of the project at the Planning Commission. The trolley is the best option as it stops in front of the City Administration Building. You never know how long items before the ColRich item will take.
Jay Wilson
DCAC Secretary
