One thing you may have noticed about Scripps Ranch is that when this community sets a goal, it is usually reached. Let's set the goal of retaining MCAS Miramar as a military base and not turning it into an international airport.
To get in touch with elected officials, just visit the SRCA website at [www.scrippsranch.org] and we'll link you to them. You can find the Airport Authority's contact in the SRPG article. Let your voice be heard!
Do you have a question or concern that you would like to discuss with our city councilmember? Perhaps the airport issue? Well, now you have the opportunity. Councilmember Brian Maienschein will have a "meet and greet" on Wednesday, Nov. 19, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Scripps Ranch Library. Stop by and let him know what's on your mind.
Good news for the community when it comes to the amount of park acres in Scripps Ranch. And, it could mean this community could reach its goal of joint-use playing fields at our new middle school. Page 17 has details.
It's not something we like to think about, but domestic violence is a tragic reality. The County of San Diego has established a new domestic violence hotline that links callers to a variety of services. We will now include the number in the Directory section of each month's Newsletter on page 86 under "Emergencies." Thank you to the Hidden Valley House Auxiliary for bringing this to our attention.
If you have ever been to our Information Center, you know what a beautiful building it is. Well, now it has new policies regarding the meeting rooms, which may mean your group can use them, for a fee. Details are on page 19.
Last month I mentioned that our new Newsletter area distributor, Graham Nicastro, is not yet old enough to drive. Well, he can drive! My apologies, Graham, and thanks again for volunteering for this important community position.
Santa Claus is coming to Scripps Ranch! In what has become a community tradition, McMillin Realty is once again hosting Santa. And, your kids can get pictures with him--for free! Page 21 has all the information.
