Dear Mayor Tanaka and City Council Members:
Coronado beach has consistently been voted the top beach in the United States and is our prime jewel. This is the first time in the last sixty years that I have lived in Coronado that I have ever communicated my displeasure on any political matter, which should send a signal to all of you that I feel very strongly about protecting our beach ---- and so do all of my friends. As a long time resident, I feel…
The Save Our Beach Committee has been formed to defeat the proposed bike path that could be constructed on our beach. In order to raise awareness in our community about the proposed bike path, the Committee has purchased yard signs.
Last Friday, we distributed yard signs to fellow Coronadans who are opposed to the bike path. By Saturday morning, we ran out of yard signs, but will have more…
Last Saturday evening we walked the length of Ocean Blvd. at about 5 o'clock. We were reasonably well dressed because we were on our way to a reception at the Hotel Del. At least half dozen or more times, we were forced to find a way to move off the sidewalk to allow surreys and/or bikes go by. With even minor heels and nice dress shoes, this can be a daunting task since, in some places, the rather narrow sidewalk is bounded by boulders on one side and parking slots on the…
My wife and I attended the city council meeting on August 18, 2015 and were surprised and amazed at the opposition to the “bike path study.” As I listened, what particularly amazed me was that statements and arguments were being set forth based on a lack of any facts, reasons, or evidence which could be used to make a logical decision regarding just a “bike path study.”
Having been trained in research and having had professional experience in large organizations related…Continue

He was not a risk taker—that was evident from the risk assessment test he took to become an aviator--- and more importantly he had a fiancée waiting for him back home.…
