whale caused storm for shore birds.
.... In response to questions I've received, I'm happy to report that in spite of this week's storms producing many tree issues, we have not seen the kinds of damage that we've experienced in the past. Thank goodness!" (Lorie Tinfow, City Manager)
1. Drones - Know the Rules. On the evening of Friday January 27, the Police Department assisted the North County Fire Authority with a cliff rescue. A resident was flying his drone in the area of the first-responders and hampered the rescue effort. In our Press Release, we outline the circumstances, but also provide links to the Federal Aviation Administration in an effort to educate drone owners. We ask drone owners to stay clear of emergency operations. While drones can provide some amazing video footage, it's not worth the risk to lives, possible damage to property, and harm to the environment.
2. Study Session on "In-Law Units" at Feb. 21 Planning Commission Meeting. .... The term “accessory dwelling unit” is the new legal term for what are commonly known as second units, in-law units, etc. Check back for the agenda to be posted to the meeting portal.
