  • Decal Parking Permit ZoneThe City Council agreed to suspend the City’s Decal Parking Permit Zone for a one-year trial period. The zone was established in 1991 to protect the residential character of the neighborhood near Naval Air Station North Island. At the time, Navy personnel parking off base significantly impacted the area. The initial parking boundaries were expanded in 1996, 2001 and 2005. The Council action, taken Tuesday, October 3, revokes permits and calls for the removal of street signs during the trial period. A letter was mailed this week to inform area residents about the trial period. It has been posted online
  • Temporary Telephone Poles at State Beach:  Drivers passing by Silver Strand State Beach may have noticed more than a dozen telephone poles grouped in the sand directly across from Loews Coronado Bay Resort. They were installed as part of a special team-building rope course event in conjunction with Loews. The poles will continue to be set up through Wednesday, October 18, with cables, rope pulleys and safety ropes. They will be in use by organizers through Friday, October 20, and removed by Monday, October 23.
  • Wounded Warriors Reception:  The City is co-hosting the Wounded Warrior Reception on Sunday November 12, at 3 p.m., at Maretalia Ristorante, 1300 Orange Ave. Iraq War triple amputee Bryan Anderson will speak and be presented a key to the City of Coronado. To attend the reception, register here.
  • New Trash Receptacles: The City of Coronado and Coronado MainStreet are testing out new trash receptacles on the northeast corner of Orange Avenue and Tenth Street. The City hopes to hear from the community about the new look. If the community likes the bins and they successfully do the job, they may replace the 60-plus square concrete receptacles in the business district. Please provide your input to Public Services at (619) 522-7380.
