Street Vending...Call to action



On Monday November 14th the city council will consider removing the requirement for Coastal Commission approval of the Street Vending Ordinance which has held up enforcement in our community and the other communities in the coastal zone. If approved, there will be a second reading on December 6th with enforcement to finally begin 30 days later.


We should not assume that it is a slam dunk that the city council will approve removing the requirement. The vending community will doubtlessly put up strong opposition to this and may request other amendments to the street vending ordinance. Any amendments will further delay enforcement.

We should support the removal of the Coastal Commission approval requirement WITHOUT any amendments to the ordinance approved by the city council on May 22nd.


The Mission Beach community has spoken out and been heard for the past year and it vital that this continues.

Every voice is needed, PLEASE do not be complacent. There are four different ways you can contribute. Please do two of the following. The list is in order of effectiveness.

1. Come to the city council hearing on November 14th and speak in person. (Probably 2:00 pm this will be updated) prepare a one minute speech. (yes, you will be there for a few hours but our community is worth it)

2. Attend the city council meeting via zoom and sign up to give a one minute speech. https://sandiego.zoomgov.com/j/1611703951

To join by telephone: Dial 1-669-254 5252 +

When prompted, input Webinar ID:161 170 3951 #

3. Public Comment may be submitted using the webform indicating the comment type and item number (if relevant) for which you wish to submit your comment. Comments received by 12:00 PM for Monday Meetings and 8:00 AM for Tuesday meetings will be distributed to the City Council and posted online with the meeting materials. All webform comments are limited to 500 words but may include attachments. Comments received after the deadlines described above but before the item is called will be submitted into the written record for the relevant item.

4. Do this as well as one of the above three

Send an email to the mayor’s office and EACH city council office


“in support of the removal of the Coastal Commission approval requirement WITHOUT any amendments to the street vending ordinance approved by the city council on May 22nd. By doing so the city council can ensure that our coastal parks and pathways can be enjoyed by the public as nature retreats unspoiled by commercial activities.

Thank you to the many of you who have spent a lot of time on this in the past, you MUST continue to do so that we can put this issue to bed once and for all.


Please follow the following instructions on the best way to send an email to all of the city council offices.


Email INSTRUCTIONS:

• Write one letter

DO NOT identify your Council District or include your home address!

We want each City Official to think the letter writer is a constituent in their district.

• ALL NINE Council Members vote on every agenda item. Writing only to our specific Council Member does not accomplish the outcome we need when there are

NINE total votes being cast on every agenda item before City Council.

We need all Council Members on board!!!!!
