Every month San Diego Councilwoman Sherri Lightner publishes The SpotLight, a newsletter for District 1 residents, which includes La Jolla, UTC and Carmel Valley. This month's highlights included an update on the proposed sale of the La Jolla Post Office, the opening of Tender Greens in Westfield UTC Mall and information on a bill to protect canyonlands.
In the September edition of SpotLight, Lightner reported that Governor Brown signed a bill to help San Diego protect and preserve thousands of acres of city-owned open space including space in La Jolla. Senate Bill 1169, which Sen. Christine Kehoe sponsored, allows San Diego to protect from future development its canyons, hillsides, and other open spaces owned by the city, preserving them for the future.
She also reported on one of the hottest topics in 92037. Congresswoman Susan Davis has drafted the bill, dubbed the “Community Post Office Relocation Act,” and it has bipartisan support from Congressman Brian Bilbray and Congressman Bob Filner.
