For the second time in less than a month residents crowded the city council chamber to voice their opposition to a feasibility study for a multi-use path on Ocean Blvd.
The council voted unanimously to rescind the $100,00 they had approved in June. They did so in the face of overwhelming public opposition to the study. There were over 200 people, including 100 sitting outside in chairs the city had setup for them. The vast majority wore “Save Our Beach” stickers.…Continue

San Diego prominence as a military hub can be traced to one determined Marine: Major General Joseph H. Pendleton. Without his foresight, persuasive skills, and focused tenacity, San Diego would not be the military center it is today. Neither would Coronado.
According to those who knew him, Pendleton frequently pointed out that he and fellow Marine Charles H. Lyman could be considered discoverers of San…

During a recent trip to San Francisco, I walked the Golden Gate Bridge using their bicycle/pedestrian path, on a weekday when bikes are allowed. I posted a short video (see link below) and recommend viewing it relative to Coronado’s proposed multi-use beach path. Like Coronado beach, the Golden Gate is a popular destination and has an abundance of tourists year round. Their path is about 10’-12’ wide, with some…Continue

There is a local Facebook group in Coronado that continues to help fill needs around town - all on their own. In the past, they have helped raise funds for the Silver Strand PTO, replaced a stolen bike, donated supplies to a school in need over the bridge and even distributed signs to remind drivers to "Please Slow Down".
As the temperatures rose last week, the non-AC classrooms of Coronado were hitting the high eighties making it very hard for students to…

Long operated as an independent venture founded by one of Coronado's most beloved residents, Sharp Coronado’s “Meals on Wheels” recently decided that it could not provide, by itself, the quality of service seniors here deserved. Over the summer Sharp Coronado reached out to with Meals-on-Wheels of Greater San Diego, a larger organization whose only mission is provide nutritious meals to people who can no…Continue

It promises to be a busy afternoon at city hall next Tuesday. The council will discuss two controversial issues – reconsideration of feasibility study for a multi-use path along Ocean Blvd and a report on how other cities fund community organizations. It will consider a councilman's request to revisit two other controversial issues. There are also a couple of items of interest on the consent calendar.
Ocean Blvd Pathway
The council will vote on…Continue

View of Coronado’s beach shared by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians from the intersection of Marina Avenue and Ocean Boulevard.
In June the City Council unanimously approved funding up to $100,000 for a study of the feasibility of constructing a multi-use path on the beach has become the source of substantial discussion. Vocal opposition to…Continue

Sesame would like nothing better than for you to open your heart and home to her. And once you meet her you won’t be able to say no to this charming and affectionate girl.
Sesame first came to the Coronado Animal Care Facility as a kitten in April 2014 She was quickly adopted, but now her family can no longer care for her. She has not let that get her down though; she welcomes visitors even pawing at the glass asking…Continue

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
Summer Days at the Beach
By Bruce HB Johnson
I chose my parents wisely, so I could be born and raised in Coronado. My dad was a Navy Fighter Pilot. Growing up on the island was like being in Mayberry, except we had a beach. Summers were magical. School got out in early June for summer vacation and did not resume until after Labor Day…
