Coronado’s own Candy Cane Lane, located in a quiet cul-de-sac at the end of Country Club Lane (600 block), has been a Christmas tradition since the early 1960s. Each December, residents in the neighborhood adorn their lawns with large painted plywood decorations to create an exquisite Christmas display down the whole block. Though participation is not exactly a requirement of residency in the area, most people go all out with decorations and enjoy being part of this…Continue

1. Teen Korps USA, Feeding America and Starbucks Food Drive

Rebecca Zahau’s body was found nude and bound in the courtyard of boyfriend Jonah Shacknai’s Coronado Spreckels mansion on July 13, two days after Jonah’s son Max suffered a fall that left him comatose. Despite the final ruling of suicide in September, many have not considered her death a closed case. Zahau's family has struggled to accept the verdict, and after reaching out to Dr. Phil for answers, a private investigation was launched and second autopsy was…Continue

Today's crazy winds and rain have caused a palm tree at 9th St and Orange Ave to snap and fall into the street around 3:45pm. It has since been dragged into the median and is out of drivers' way.
As a reminder, sandbags are available to residents during periods of heavy rain. They can be picked up at First St. & Alameda Blvd. and Fourth St. & Alameda Blvd.
Be safe and stay alert for any possible hazards out there!

Though not a new concept, bicycle riding seems to have become more prevalent with the increased focus on 'eco-friendly' alternatives. Coronado, with its relatively small area and flat terrain, is a perfect place for bicycles to roam freely... but how many of us strictly follow bike safety laws – or even know what they are?
At one point or another, you have probably heard rumors that Coronado forbids franchises or “chain” stores/superstores to establish within the city limits. How, then, can we explain the existence of Burger King, Starbucks, or the forthcoming Walgreens? Simply put, chains or “formula” businesses ARE permitted, with certain caveats, and must first gain approval from the city’s Planning Commission.
The Coronado Municipal Code, an extensive outline of the…

We are privileged to have the…Continue

The meeting was partially a continuation of the September 14th meeting, at which Chairperson Todd Shallan suggested to reconvene to give the architect the opportunity and time to make revisions to the Walgreens design.
