At our meeting on September 23rd, the OBTC will hear an update on the status of the OB Orchard Avenue Cliff Cave demolition from Councilmember Lorie Zapf’s Office. We will also hear a presentation from the Alzheimer’s Association on the Take Me Home Program plus information, resources and tips to help you care for your loved one and yourself; we’re going to learn tactics on how OB can become more a more Alzheimer’s-Aware community.
Finally, the OB Lifeguards are requesting consideration for a time change to the operational hours for the two surf camps in Ocean Beach. The proposed time change would add one additional hour to the current operational period. The current RFP lease agreement states that the maximum land-based hours of operation are from8:30 am to 5:00 pm, and that water instruction is permitted from 9:00 am to 4 pm. This proposal would allow in-water instruction to extend until 5:30 pm and beach use until 6:00 pm. The additional hour-and-a-half of in-water time could only be used for private lessons ranging from 1 to 5 students and would be implemented on a trial basis for sixty days. We have invited the surf camps to present their case and the OB Lifeguards are looking for community input and feedback on this proposal.
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 law enforcement and public safety representatives, as well as members from all corners of the Ocean Beach community.
