LOCAL ELECTIONS BRING A NEW PROCESS AND NEW PL AYERS Next month Oceanside will hold its first City Council election under the new district format. Last year, under the threat of lawsuit, many communities including Oceanside, moved from “at-large” to district format for council, school board and hospital districts. This year City Council Districts 1 and 2, the northeastern and northwestern segments of our city, will have the opportunity to decide who will represent them for the next four years. The process of converting to districts will be completed in 2020 as districts 3 and 4 will hold elections for the first time. After that, the Mayor will be the only “atlarge” representative on the council.

BUSINESS JOURNAL OCEANSIDE CHA MBER OF COMMERCE QUARTERLY NEWSLET TER FALL 2018

Oceanside Business Journal is published by the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce in 4 editions: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. This newsletter is available at the Chamber office, community centers, local businesses, libraries, Sunset Market, and in digital format on the Chamber’s website.

The Chamber recently held candidate forums for both districts, with all five District 2 candidates and all four District 1 candidates participating. We were pleased to have full participation from the candidates and a great turnout from the community. See page 14 for the full story and an overview of the candidates’ positions on some key community issues. District elections present a new challenge to our City as the candidates each only answer to about ¼ of the City’s voters. It is critical to the future of Oceanside that whoever is elected will balance the needs of his or her district with the overall welfare of the City. On a related note, several of our long-time elected officials will be leaving office in the next few months. Thank you to Oceanside City Councilmember Jerry Kern, County Supervisor Bill Horn, Assemblymember Rocky Chavez and Congressman Darrel Issa for their many years of service to our region. We look forward to continuing to work with those who will fill their seats for the upcoming term.

Here’s a quick overview of some other key business issue that are on our radar…

6 Economic Impact of Measure Y

For restaurants, coffee houses, etc., the issue of single use materials, specifically straws, continues to be a hot topic. AB 1884, which calls for straws to only be given out upon request, had already passed the State Senate and Assembly as of this writing. Several municipalities have implemented, or will consider ordinances that would go beyond the state legislation. We have reached out to the City Council and our local eateries to make sure there is ongoing communication between business owners and city leaders as decisions are made on this issue.

economic development and quality of life issue. It is great to know that the Army Corps of Engineers has secured a 10-year permit for dredging the Harbor, meaning that we should get sand on our beaches for the upcoming summers. However, a long-term solution that keeps sand on our beaches is still lacking. Watch for the Chamber to become much more engaged on this critical issue in the coming years. It is not just of importance to our tourism industry, but to the overall quality of life to everyone that uses Oceanside’s beaches. Measure Y, formerly known as the SOAR Initiative, could potentially impact our city for decades to come. If you are not already familiar with this issue, please read the story on page 6. Measure Y would set a dangerous precedent by treating zoning decisions in South Morro Hills differently than the rest of the City. The measure would place land use decisions, impacting the livelihood of our local farmers, into the hands of the general public. The November 6th ballot includes critical issues for Oceanside, so please get out and exercise your right to vote. With council districting, each race could come down to just a few votes. Make your vote count!

I T TA K E S A CO M M U N I T Y T O P R E PA R E O C E A N S I D E’S FUTURE WORKFORCE By Dr. Nicole Magnuson, Executive Director, Oceanside Promise The City of Oceanside is a thriving coastal community attracting tourists, industry, and new residents who value our diversity, beaches, and quality of life. In order to meet the needs and expectations of our current and future residents and employers, we must remain focused on ensuring we have a pipeline of quality talent to enter the workforce, become future leaders, and contribute meaningfully to our city. The Oceanside Promise is a community-wide partnership united by a shared vision of every child and youth reaching their fullest potential in college, career and life. The Promise partners believe in the promise of Oceanside and the importance of investing in the social, emotional and academic success of all children. It’s an investment with profound returns as they are better equipped with the skills, knowledge, and competencies to take on leadership roles in our school district, city government, businesses, and nonprofit community. We also believe that we must work better together… and we cannot do it alone. According to Georgetown University, three quarters of the jobs of the future will require some kind of training beyond high school. Living in California, earning a college degree or industry recognized certificate is imperative for current and future generations if they want to do more than just get by. Oceanside has one of the highest poverty levels in North County. The solution? A more educated, skilled, and engaged workforce. As members of the community, we all have a role in supporting the success of our children and students to become confident, qualified and competitive locally, nationally, and globally. Some ways that individuals and organizations can help Oceanside’s students succeed include: Set High Expectations: Youth are influenced by their peers and the adults around them. It’s our job to encourage them to pursue lifelong learning and college degree and/or industry recognized certificate attainment. Postsecondary education prepares them to be competitive for high wage, high demand jobs and results in higher incomes, greater resiliency during an economic downturn, and less dependence on social services. In short, it benefits us all. Expect World-Class Education: A high-quality education system is key in preparing students for the www.oceansidechamber.com | Fall 2018

workforce. Encouraging and supporting our PreK-12 and higher education institutions to be innovative and adaptive to rapidly changing workforce demands is one way to ensure students have access to quality learning experiences. Provide Career Exploration Opportunities: Oceanside students need real life experiences in local and regional companies in order to expose them to diverse careers and to better understand employer expectations. This can take many forms such as job shadowing, paid internships, career mentorship, and more. In addition, educators need partnerships with industry so that classroom content is more relevant and related to realworld experiences, thus, better preparing students for success in college and career. Contribute Your Expertise: Schools, nonprofits and community-based programs need experts in a variety of fields actively engaged in sharing their path to college and/ or career. The Oceanside Promise is actively recruiting industry experts to get involved so more youth have role models and mentors who can help them navigate the complexity of college and career pathways. Volunteering on expert panels, visiting classrooms, and working directly with students are just some of the ways you can give back and help prepare students for success. Invest in Innovative Approaches: Organizations and educational institutions throughout Oceanside that are focused on preparing students for the workforce depend on community support. Even if you can’t get actively involved, you can invest in supporting programs, services and collaborations, such as the Oceanside Promise, to support more youth on their path to college and career preparedness. Regardless of where you choose to get engaged, you can make a difference. Your involvement with time, money or talent is a valuable investment in our children, youth and the future workforce of Oceanside. To learn more, visit OceansidePromise.org.

REPORT:

On November 6th, Oceanside voters will have

the opportunity to vote on a ballot measure that will impact our local economy for decades to come. Measure Y, more commonly referred to as the SOAR initiative, not only could have lasting economic impacts, but also would eliminate local farmland, encourage sprawling estate lot development in Oceanside’s backcountry, and make “ballot-box planning” land-use restrictions a reality in Oceanside. Measure Y would require voter approval for any change in the zoning of land currently designated for agricultural or open space. This takes away property rights from farms by making it cost prohibitive for farmers to mount a political campaign, not to mention the cost to the city taxpayers to hold an election. This past Spring, upon recognition of the potential detrimental effects of the measure, the Chamber commissioned Dr. Lynn Reaser of Point Loma Nazarene University to complete a study on the economic impact of Measure Y. The complete study is available for download at www.OceansideSoarStudy.com. According to Reaser’s report, Measure Y will fail on its core promise of protecting public recreational lands and open space “because most open space used for parks and recreational activities is City-owned and already requires a vote of the people for any zoning change.”

6 | Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Business Journal

MEASURE Y WOULD DEVASTATE FARMERS AND STALL ECONOMIC GROWTH Similarly, the claim that Measure Y will safeguard Oceanside farmland is false. In fact, Dr. Reaser’s study came to the opposite conclusion: “The Initiative will likely lead to the demise of active farms in Oceanside, with land either being left to go fallow or sold into large estates for the wealthy.” According to Chamber CEO, Scott Ashton, “This measure is not about saving open space or farms. Measure Y is simply an affront to property rights. It benefits a small group of estate owners at the expense of our farmers and the rest of our community.” Oceanside Farmers have deep concerns about the consequences of this measure. Neil Nagata, owner of Nagata Brothers Farms, Inc. in South Morro Hills, President of the San Diego Farm Bureau sees the initiative for what it truly is. “Measure Y doesn’t help agriculture, it hurts agriculture. Farmers must depend on land values as a significant part of how we borrow money to fund our farm. By stripping our property rights from us, [Measure] Y will actually hurt our ability to stay in business. Every burden that we add just makes it easier for foreign competition to move in and replace us. If farmers go bankrupt, we’d have to lay off employees, and the land won’t stay green. The decision would be to

sell off 2 ½ acre lots or have the land be left as a blight to the area.” Leaders in the agritourism arena also see the unintended consequences. Agritourism has proved a successful approach to tying tourism, dining and craft-driven business to local agriculture as a way to stimulate economic activity while sustaining farming. According to Eric Larson, Executive Director of the San Diego County Farm Bureau,

www.oceansidechamber.com | Fall 2018

“Agritourism can only succeed with large numbers of visitors. To accommodate the crowds there will need to be infrastructure improvements. If the SOAR initiative prevents infrastructure improvements, there should be no expectation that agritourism will succeed.” He added, “If you look at the two most successful examples of agritourism in San Diego County, Bates Nut Farm and the Flower Fields, neither would be allowed in Oceanside under the SOAR initiative.” Reaser’s report goes into depth on a wide array of economic consequences that could result from this initiative. Some of the key takeaways from the report include…

Family Farms Potentially Becoming Exclusive Estates for the Wealthy  The initiative would shut off avenues for farmers in Oceanside to remain viable at a time when they are being squeezed between rising labor, water, and financing costs and increasing competition from imports.  The Initiative would likely lead to the eventual demise of active farms in Oceanside, with land either being left to go fallow or sold into large estates for the wealthy.

Lost Opportunity for a Vibrant Agritourism Sector  The Initiative would prevent the creation of a vibrant

agritourism cluster in Oceanside, including a mix of wineries, lodging, restaurants, and small retailers. In contrast, it would be restricted to a few roadside farm stands.  Allowing development of a true agritourism cluster with additional housing on 1/6 (limited development) to 1/3 (moderate development) of the land currently zoned exclusively for agriculture would produce significantly greater economic gains than if current uses are frozen in place. These gains would include:  About twice the number of jobs

 By 2034, the area currently being farmed is likely to contribute nearly $0.5 million to the City’s potential deficit. In contrast, the City could see a surplus of $1.2 million annually from the area if it allowed very limited development and a $2.5 million surplus annually from the region if moderate development were allowed. The report touches on several other consequences including widening wealth and income inequality, limitations on addressing housing shortages, and increased housing density in the remainder of Oceanside where it is already higher than the City of San Diego. According to Ashton, a No Vote on Measure Y will preserve a wide variety of economic opportunities for Oceanside over the coming decades. “If Measure Y is defeated, it gives Oceanside flexibility in addressing issues such as workforce housing and the implementation of a thriving agritourism sector, while ensuring agriculture remains a vital part of Oceanside – as it has been for generations.” 4

Pino, who started working in restaurants when he was just 8-years old near Florence in southeast Italy, said he is very happy with the good service Paychex provides. When he has questions, they have answers, and it makes him very happy because serving food from each region of Italy keeps Pino and his staff busy. Using Paychex allows him to focus on his customers, permitting Pino to invite you in to enjoy a glass of Champaign with him.

YX 12 CHA MBER HOSTS FORUMS FOR

COUNCIL DISTRICTS 1 AND 2

The last week of August, the Oceanside Chamber’s Business and Community Political Action Committee hosted forums for the District 1 and District 2 City Council Candidates. All 9 candidates participated in the forums and answered questions on key issues of concern to Oceanside. District 1 candidates included: Susan Custer, Chuck Lowery, Michael Odegaard, Esther Sanchez. District 2 candidates included Dana Corso, Kristopher Kagan, Larry Kornit, Terry Johnson and Christopher Rodriguez. Here’s an overview of the candidates’ positions on key Oceanside issues.

MEASURE Y

When asked about Measure Y, previously known as the SOAR initiative, District 1 candidates Custer and Lowery oppose the measure, while Sanchez and Odegaard support it. Custer noted that zoning throughout the rest of the City is done by the Council, and South Morro Hills should not be treated any differently. Lowery noted that SOAR came about from the desire of wealthy South Morro Hills homeowners to stop development. While he supports Measure Y, Odegaard noted that it “doesn’t go far enough”. Sanchez noted the origin of SOAR as being the council’s decision to pursue North River Farms against staff’s recommendations. In District 2, candidates Corso, Kagan and Kornit were all in favor of the measure, citing issues of trust that City Councilmembers will make the right decisions for that land. Terry Johnson, who had previously supported the measure, has changed his mind due to differences with Corso. As a farmer, Rodriguez has maintained a position against the measure all along.

a short term vacation rental program. Corso’s position on the measure was not clear, as she stated that it should be left to the people to decide.

CANNABIS

The issue of cannabis was also addresses, with a general consensus amongst the candidates that it provided an economic opportunity for Oceanside, specifically with regard to pursuing tax revenue.

DISTRICT 1 HIGHLIGHTS Custer advocated for the streamlining of the approval and permitting processes for business. She advocated for employees covering more of their pension costs going forward and the idea of focusing on investments in which proceeds go toward paying down the pension liability. Lowery spoke of the importance of not allowing for a 4-person council, which could persist for up to 24 months if Sanchez is elected and vacates her “at-large”

MEASURE X The candidates were also questioned about Measure X, which would result in an increase of ½ percent on the sales tax in Oceanside. In District 1, Susan Custer was the only opposition to the measure. Odegaard, along with Sanchez and Lowery support Measure X. Both Sanchez and Lowery had previously voted in favor of placing the measure on this November’s ballot. In District 2, Johnson and Kornit showed strong support for the measure, citing the need for the additional funds to maintain public safety. Rodriguez and Kagan were not in support of Measure X, emphasizing that the City needs to pursue revenue growth instead. Kagan cited the desire to see more creativity in revenue generation, while Rodriguez spoke of opportunities to bring in more tax revenue with 14 | Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Business Journal

seat. He noted that this would impact the council’s ability to make important decisions such as addressing pension obligations. He also highlighted the importance Fall 2018 | www.oceansidechamber.com


of infrastructure improvements to meet the needs of our growing business community. Odegaard expressed concerns about rising energy costs and highlighted his business’ (Vine Street Apartments) partnership with SDG&E to install charging stations for electric vehicles. He also advocated for addressing the City’s pension obligation by capping pensions and raising the City’s Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT). Sanchez emphasized the importance of protecting our industrial/commercial land and not rezoning it for housing. She spoke of the City’s relatively low jobs to housing ratio compared to the San Diego region. Sanchez noted the progress the City has already made in addressing the unfunded pension obligation.

DISTRICT 2 HIGHLIGHTS Corso was questioned about conflicting reports regarding her claim that she is being endorsed by former Oceanside Mayor, Jim Wood. A memo from Wood dated this July, along with a social media post from the Mayor’s former aide, have indicated that he is not endorsing any

candidates for this year’s council elections. At the forum, Corso stood by her claims that Wood has and continues to endorse her. Kornit said he wants to be the person to bring decorum back to the council and to be a councilmember that listens to the community members. In discussing his climate action plan for Oceanside, he said, new construction and every municipal building should have solar panels. He said building new homes (specifically affordable housing) anywhere other than near mass transit is irresponsible. Rodriguez spoke of his concern about housing costs pushing our seniors and veterans out of Oceanside and spoke of streamlining development processes. He also advocated for creativity in addressing housing, which would include having a robust accessory dwelling unit program that could alone add 800-1000 units to Oceanside’s housing supply. Johnson in addressing housing, said high density development will be built along the rail corridor and possibly in the old drive-in theatre site. He also noted the importance of the passage of the sales tax measure as the City addresses pension obligations. He spoke of the strong consensus the council had when he previously served, and felt that Oceanside is continuing to enjoy the benefits of those years. Kagan referenced the 9-block plan in downtown Oceanside as a great start, but said he wants to see the 42 square mile plan for the rest of Oceanside. He advocated for more housing development in downtown Oceanside that would allow for residents to be close to mass transit. The District 1 forum can be seen in its entirety at Youtube. com/OceansideChamber. Regrettably, due to technical difficulties, we are unable to publish the District 2 forum.

CREATIVE CHANGE: COLL ABORATION IN THE OCEANSIDE CALIFORNIA CULTURAL DISTRICT (OCCD) Submitted by Maria Mingalone, Executive Director of Oceanside Museum of Art on behalf of the Oceanside California Cultural District (OCCD) Lead Partners

Oceanside has incredible personality and energy, both in its art and its people. It is this culturally rich, creative spirit that makes it worthy of its recent designation by the California Arts Council as one of the first California Cultural Districts in the state. A team effort Oceanside California Cultural District (OCCD) has been a group undertaking from the beginning. Oceanside Public Library, Oceanside Museum of Art, and MainStreet Oceanside, a downtown business organization, joined forces, and this trio strikes the right balance of community connection, quality artistic experience, and business strength that a cultural district deserves. The lead partners have created an Executive Committee along with Visit Oceanside, the local tourism entity, and are forming a Steering Committee, made up of members of the business community representing retail, lodging and food establishments, city’s planning staff, artists, and citizens, to create a solid foundation on which to succeed. One of the earliest members of the Steering Committee is the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce which understands that culture contributes to the health of our city in a myriad of ways; it makes good economic sense for local business owners by acting as an anchor to the downtown area and drawing visitors to restaurants and shops; it is a source of pride for our elected leaders and benefits the entire north county region. First time for everything Oceanside’s Arts Commission has undertaken the development of the city’s first cultural plan in its history. Planning started with input from the public and elected officials to articulate a vision, goals, and strategies to help the arts and creativity flourish. O’Arts: Master Plan for the Arts for the City of Oceanside focuses on arts as a civic problem-solver, its contributions to economic health and prosperity, and the importance of equity and inclusion. It outlines the need for collaboration, cultivation, and growth of the emerging OCCD, as well as the importance of leveraging community assets for success. Nationwide, arts audiences send $102.5 billion to local businesses in event-related spending, such as lodging, parking, meals and souvenirs. In the City of San Diego, event-related spending by arts and cultural organizations supports 36,000 full-time equivalent jobs and delivers $116 million in local and state government revenue. To bring this spotlight locally, the Arts Commission will undertake 16 | Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Business Journal

an Americans for the Arts Economic Impact in the next year to examine the impact of the arts within Oceanside, and a separate study to examine the impact of the cultural district itself. The shape of things to come Time will tell what shape the Oceanside Cultural District will ultimately carve for itself, much like the coastline where it resides. But the work of the partnership thus far has no doubt strengthened our momentum and sense of direction. Oceanside’s designation as a California Cultural District has proved to be an opportunity to explore and share who we want to be collectively — to place leaders of cultural organizations, arts venues, members of the business community, and city leaders in the same room to honor our numerous assets and to contribute to the bright future of a vibrant Oceanside.
