For various reasons, allowing dog-owners this civil disobedience was no longer tolerated and hence Vetter Park has since been unfrequented.
As a Coronado resident and a…

I created the following survey as a tool for residents to share their thoughts on a variety of city issues and I'm hoping you'll take a few minutes to let City Council know what you think.
The survey will be open for two weeks and then the results will be reported at a future council meeting.
All responses are anonymous.
The survey is not paid for with taxpayer dollars or authorized by the City of Coronado.

Do you know you’ve been paying Prop KK parcel taxes since 2000, and will continue paying every year until 2026? (Look at your prop tax statement.) And in addition to that $17M, CUSD borrowed about $100M more…Continue
