Street Vendor Update - At last Wednesday's general meeting Seamus Kennedy from Councilmember Campbell's office updated us that on November 14th the city council should hold the first reading on the Street Vendor Ordinance which would finally allow full enforcement to begin in the coastal zone. They would like support to be given for the ordinance to be approved without any amendments, which the board supports. If passed on November 14th there would then be a second reading 30 days later with enforcement to begin about 30 days after that. If this schedule holds Mission Beach should be vendor free by the middle of January. While this is months after it should have been at least we have a timeline. Further updates will be forthcoming.
Wednesday October 19th Board Meeting - TIME CHANGE - the normal start time for our board meetings is 5:00 pm but since many have Padre Fever, I've changed the start time to 6:00 pm so you can cheer on the Padres and still participate in the board meeting. The meeting will be held at the Mission Beach Women's Club on Santa Clara Pl. Any member of the Council may attend meetings of the Board of Directors but shall not be allowed to vote, make, or second motions. However, an attending member may make as many suggestions as allowed by the presiding Officer of the meeting. The agenda may be found here https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0qb6avly5yc0cs7/AABPSiMTv6QQM01Mlw67l5R9a/Agenda/2022%20BOARD%20MEETING%20AGENDAS?dl=0&preview=10-19-2022+Board+Meeting+Agenda.docx&subfolder_nav_tracking=1
