COVID-19 in San Diego: Cases & Deaths (Updated Daily)

Feast & Fareway Recommended for Golf Course Restaurant

City Council will meet on Tuesday, February 20 at City Hall Council Chamber, 1825 Strand Way.

The Feast and Fareway restaurant group is the choice of an ad hoc city council commission tasked with recommending a new concessionaire for the Municipal Golf Course restaurant. The full council will vote on the recommendation at its meeting on Tuesday, February 20.

Feast and Fareway includes the owner of Harry’s Coffee Shop in La Jolla and the owner of the Fig Tree Café in Pacific Beach and Liberty Station. In addition to a new concessionaire, the city envisions upgrading the club house kitchen and restrooms. The current concessionaire’s contract ends in August.

Up for discussion is a proposal to suspend the city’s leash law for six months in selected parks: Centennial, Tidelands (paved areas only), Vetter, Harborview and Bayview. Currently there are only two places dogs can be off-leash – Coronado Cays Dog Park and Dog Beach at Coronado’s northern public beach.

Besides the future of the golf course restaurant and the viability of leash-free dog parks,the council’s agenda also includes the following:

Gateway Project: Plans to renovate the toll booth plaza appear to be in jeopardy. City staff has received word that Caltrans will not approve major components of the project, including removal of the toll booth islands, landscaping of the northernmost lanes and reconfiguration of the parking lot. The toll booth is on State Route 75, which is under the transportation agency’s jurisdiction. To overcome this obstacle, the staff proposes asking the state legislature to intervene on the city’s behalf to convince Caltrans that the Gateway Project “will not have a significant adverse impact on the environment, but [is] rather a needed public improvement.”

Channel 19: A report on the city’s efforts to force Spectrum to correct signal problems that date back to mid-October 2017. Viewers have complained about dropped sound, fuzzy and frozen images. Despite prodding from the city, the cable network has yet to fix the transmission problems, according to the staff report.

Parking Permit District Survey: An analysis of how the removal of permit parking on streets adjacent to Naval Air Station North Island has impacted parking in the neighborhood. Surveys were conducted by counting the available spaces on select blocks on weekday mornings and afternoons. The counts were taken in October and November when permit parking was still in effect and in January and February after it was suspended.

State lobbying: Shane LaVigne of Capitol Advocacy will give an update on state legislation on a number of issues, including border sewage, state highway relinquishment, drought restrictions and accessory dwelling units (ADU).

Community Grant Program: The third and final report on efforts to revise the program will be presented. An ad hoc council subcommittee has been studying ways to make the program fairer, more transparent and more conducive to residents’ needs.

The entire agenda can be viewed here.

Meeting will be held Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 4pm
