On Tuesday night, join Hillcrest Town Council as we have some great presentations from some great locals!
As always, we'll have representatives from our local government offices. This is a great opportunity to reach out to our esteemed local elected officials!
Our first presentation will be from mayoral candidate and Councilmember Carl DeMaio. As we have with both mayoral candidates, we welcome all who seek San Diego's highest office a chance to share their vision for San Diego, and an opportunity for community members to engage in a dialogue. From his web site,
Carl DeMaio is a businessman-turned-civic watchdog who is running for San Diego Mayor. Carl offers voters a simple but timely pledge: Clean Up City Hall.
After years of financial crisis, draconian service cuts, crumbling roads and infrastructure, and little action by city leaders on a host of pressing problems, DeMaio is running for Mayor because "we cannot afford any more delays in fixing our city's problems."
We welcome Councilmember DeMaio to Hillcrest Town Council.
Next, Hillcrest Town Council will be presenting Ortega's - A Mexican Bistro with a LION (Let's Improve Our Neighborhood) Award. On the last Monday of each month, Ortega's graciously hosts Hillcrest Town Council's Steering Comittee at 6pm, as they have been doing for quite some time. On that note...
Hillcrest Town Council's Steering Committee is often where the magic happens. Come be a part of the team that sets the agenda for our monthly meetings, and helps make other critical decisions about where Hillcrest Town Council moves. Join us at 141 University Ave at 6:30pm on October 29.
We'll also be presenting Hillcrest neighbor Ricardo Rodriguez a LION Award for the complete and wonderful upgrades he did on two houses at Vermont and Pennsylvania. His work on these homes has helped to transform the area, and
SANDAG will be requiring that purchasers of 1-4 day transit passes get a Compass Card. These will be available free with the purchase of a $5 1-day transit pass until October 31 and cost $2 thereafter. Compass Cards are good for up to 5 years and can store pass information but not cash value (presently).
Finally, the two Hillcresters will be named to represent HTC at the Uptown REgional Bike Corridor Project's design advisory group. Who are these two great neighbors? Join us on Tuesday and find out!
