La Jolla CPA Prioritizes Parks and Rec, Transportation Projects

Trustees selected several projects, including improvements to Coast Boulevard sidewalk at the Children’s Pool and restoration of Scripps Park, among others.

The La Jolla Community Planning Association met Thursday at the La Jolla Recreation Center. Here are some of the highlights from the meeting:

  • The board voted on La Jolla’s list of priorities for the city’s Capital Improvement Program budget. Trustees selected several projects, including improvements to Coast Boulevard sidewalk at the Children’s Pool, restoration of Scripps Park, enhancements to South Coast Boulevard Park, improvements to Torrey Pines Road corridor and a Coast Walk parking feasibility study. The Community Planning Association selected these Parks and Recreation and Transportation projects from trustee and public input during its Oct. 4 meeting. The mayor’s office invited the public to help decide what infrastructure repairs, upgrades and new construction projects should take precedence on the city’s Capital Improvement Program agenda. 
  • In an 8-6 vote with President Tony Crisafi abstaining, the board declared that the proposed dwelling on an undeveloped site at 1456 Nautilus St. was not in substantial conformance with the existing Coastal Development Permit. The three-lot project had previously been approved, but only one house was constructed. The applicant wishes to construct a second house that differs from original plans. The previous plan was for a modern 12,000-square-foot, three-level house. Although the current plan is for a smaller, 9,615-square-foot Mediterranean-style house with two floors, the board ultimately decided that the architectural concept was too different from the original design.
