To kickoff our first meeting of 2015, Lorie Zapf, our new San Diego City Councilmember, will join our OBTC meeting on Wednesday, January 28th. Lorie will provide OB with an overview of her legislative priorities for 2015 and take questions from community members. This will be an opportunity for OBeceans to inform our Councilmember of our top concerns and advocate for our priorities and ideas!
As usual, SDPD law enforcement representatives will be in attendance and they will provide our community an update on the recent increase in burglaries and car break-ins. Remember to be safe, OB and watch out for one another! Try forming a neighborhood watch program (or at least getting to know your neighbors); diligently locking your doors and windows, and above all — report ALL criminal activity! (If it’s not reported, we won’t get additional public safety resources). For crime in progress: dial 911. Afterwards, dial the non-emergency SDPD number: (619) 531-2000. You can file a police report here: http://www.sandiego.gov/police/crimereports/startaccess.html
We’ll also award the winners of the 35th Annual OB Parade (which was phenomenal!) with their award plaques. The parade theme was “35 Years of Peace Love and OB!” Come congratulate the Parade Winners as they get their award plaques and learn about their floats and involvement with our community!
The OB Town Council hosts public meetings on the 4th Wednesday every month except November and December. Regular speakers include local leaders, political, business and SDPD law enforcement representatives, as well as members from all corners of the Ocean Beach community. Whether you’re a long-time OBcean or just want to learn more about OB, all are welcome!
