Get up to speed on what’s going on in Coronado with this video preview of the latest edition of the Coronado City Manager’s Weekly Update, as well as a sampling of the updates below. Read the full update on the City’s website.

  • Electronic Filing: State law allows candidates in local elections to file campaign disclosure statements electronically. Candidates in Coronado may file their statements electronically, contingent upon the City Council adopting an ordinance approving the use of online or electronic filing. Coronado on Tuesday, December 19, adopted such an ordinance. The City has selected the firm of NetFile to provide an “error-proof” way to submit disclosure statements and allow the public to review the documents electronically.
  • Gateway Project Update: City Engineering staff reported this week that a Preliminary Environmental Analysis Report has been submitted for the Coronado Gateway Project to the California Department of Transportation District 11. The report contains a brief description of the proposed work and the anticipated environmental document. It focused heavily upon the impacts the project may have on the historic and cultural resources of the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, a historic district eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. This status will most likely require the completion of a full environmental impact report pursuant to the provisions of California’s Environmental Quality Act. An EIR will facilitate public review of the project and provide flexibility in design as the project progresses.Gateway Renderings
  • Christmas Tree Recycling:  Christmas trees, including flocked trees, may be recycled by using either the green-waste curbside program or the drop-off program. For the green waste curbside program, place four-foot sections of tree in your yard waste recycling containers, or bundle tree sections together with twine (maximum four feet in length and 18 inches in diameter) and place on the curb. Drop-off locations include the Glorietta Bay Boat Launch Ramp parking lot and the Cays Sports Park parking lot. Look for the large green dumpsters. Trees may be placed whole into these containers. No trash please. Residents can drop off their trees beginning Tuesday, December 26, through about mid-January.
  • Avenue of Heroes logoAvenue of Heroes Full Biographies Online: Last month, the Coronado community honored its sixth round of Avenue of Heroes banner recipients. The Avenue of Heroes Committee writes fuller biographies for each honoree that have recently been uploaded to the City’s website. The program honors military members who live or have lived in Coronado and who have honorably served in any branch of the armed services. For information on how to nominate a banner recipient, visit the Avenue of Heroes webpage on the City’s website.
