There are two current examples in which the business community’s voice needs to be heard, and the Chamber is making sure that this happens. First is the impact of the proposed SOAR Initiative on our farming community, and its potential future consequences to other industries. We have detailed this issue on the next page; and if it does make it onto the ballot, the Chamber intends to play a key role in ensuring its defeat. Another current issue is a hotel project that was recently denied by the Oceanside Planning Commission. This proposed project would bring a Fairfield Inn to a vacant property on Oceanside Blvd., just west of I-5. The 99-room hotel would provide an estimated $450 - $500 of TOT taxes to the City of Oceanside in addition to the potential of increased sales tax revenue.

ABOUT THE CHAMBER

12 MiraCosta College Update: Building our Future

In the ever-changing political landscape in the City of Oceanside, one thing remains constant, a strong voice is needed to represent the business community. The Chamber continues to be committed to filling that critical role.

The project went before the Planning Commission in January where it received opposition from nearby residents. The Planning Commission passed a motion “to not certify the Environmental Impact Report, to deny the development plan, conditional use permits and variance; and to recommend Council denial of the general plan amendment and zoning amendment.” At its March meeting, the Oceanside Chamber Board voted to support this project, as it is an appropriate use for the land and location and will help generate needed tax revenue to fund many of our City’s local priorities, such as public safety. The issue is expected to go before the City Council in early April and the Chamber has already expressed its support of the project to the Mayor and City Councilmembers. These are just a couple of examples of your Chamber providing an important voice for the greater good of the community. Chris Mead, author of “The Magicians of Main Street (America and its Chambers of Commerce)” speaks of how “voluntary groups of business people (chambers of commerce), even before the American Revolution, changed not only their local economies but often their society”. I know that I am proud to be part of such an effort, and I am glad to have a great business community supporting the Oceanside Chamber’s work.

The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the following Chamber Partners for their generous financial contributions to the Chamber’s program of work.

C H A M B E R O P P O S E S “A N T I - B U S I N E S S” S O A R I N I T I AT I V E ​ AREA BUSINESS LEADERS SITE CONCERNS WITH PROPERTY RIGHTS, ECONOMIC VITALITY The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors unanimously voted to oppose the Save Open Space and Agricultural Resources initiative, known as S.O.A.R. The proposed initiative would require a vote of the people of Oceanside for any request requiring a zone change to open space or agricultural property. This initiative destabilizes farmers’ rights, creates devastating community impacts, and denigrates the City Council. A group of Oceanside farmers opposed to this initiative have formed a coalition called Keep Farming in Oceanside to educate voters on the realities of this misguided ballot initiative. In addition to the chamber, other entities opposed to S.O.A.R. include: The San Diego County Farm Bureau, Beach House Winery and large-scale farms such as Mellano & Co. and the Nagata Brothers. According to the Keep Farming in Oceanside coalition, the measure would: • Destabilize farmers’ rights and threaten agricultural

www.oceansidechamber.com | Spring 2018

lands by blocking farmers’ ability to finance improvements and remain competitive. • Prohibit construction of new processing and packaging facilities needed for continued agricultural operations without a citywide vote. • Restrict necessary infrastructure improvements such as the construction of roads, utilities and other public facilities.​ • Place a moratorium on existing general plan and zoning designations until 2038, and requires costly citywide elections for even minor changes. “The Chamber recognizes that Oceanside residents have elected a city council that deserves the opportunity to do its job,” said Scott Ashton, CEO of the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce. “There are already strategic land use processes in place, and S.O.A.R. aims to fix a problem that is not broken.” As of this writing, it was still undetermined as to whether or not the SOAR proponents had gathered the required number of signatures needed to place the initiative on the ballot.

MEET OCEANSIDE’S NEW MAYOR, PETER WEISS Oceanside’s newest Mayor Peter Weiss has a lengthy history as a city employee and is well regarded. Peter earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering Technology from the University of Pittsburgh in 1981. Weiss was first hired by the City of Oceanside in 1986 as a city engineer where he specialized in helping with plans for new development and focused on customer service. He was then promoted to city engineer in 1996, a position held until 2000 when Weiss was appointed Director of Oceanside’s new Public Works Department. In 2007 the City Council appointed Weiss as City Manager, replacing Barry Martin. He served as city manager for six years, retiring in 2013, but continued to work for the city as a consultant. When Mayor Jim Wood announced his retirement in 2018, he recommended that the City Council appoint Peter as Mayor to fulfill his term. Weiss was sworn in on Thursday, January 25, 2018. Peter and his wife Janet have raised four children who all attended El Camino High School. Over the years, Peter had been active in Boy Scouts and a variety of youth sports programs. Peter is still active in

NEW MAGAZINE TO COMMEMORATE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF WOMEN MARINES ON CAMP PENDLETON The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce is honored to partner with the local Chapters of the Women Marines Association and the Camp Pendleton Historical Society to create a magazine celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Women Marines on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.

With the establishment of Camp Joseph H. Pendleton in 1942, Women Marines arrived one year later. Their role was to assist and support and to “free up” as many male Marines for overseas duty as possible. The Women Marine Reserve was formed on February 13, 1943, under Col. Ruth Cheney Streeter. Captain Lillian Daly was stationed at Camp Pendleton in March of 1943. She was one of the 300 women enlisted by the Marines in World War I for clerical work. She attained the rank of corporal when she was Miss Lillian O’Malley and was the first Woman Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton at the time. In October of 1943 the first contingent of 95 Women Marines reached Camp Pendleton and were welcomed by General Joseph C. Fegan. Since then, many women have proudly worn the Eagle, Globe and Anchor. partnership a publication in ide Chamber of with the Oceans Chapters of the Commerce, local association, and Women Marines n Historical society. Camp Pendleto , 928 n. Coast Highway 92054 Oceanside, Ca hamber.com www.oceansidec

This publication will feature a wide variety of historical articles and photos, commemorating the role of Women in the Marine Corps and their contribution to the United States of America. Your ad in the magazine is a great way to salute Women Marines, and to promote your business to thousands of potential customers. 2 | Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Business Journal

L O N G AWA I T E D B E A C H R E S O R T TO BRE AK GROUND No one would dispute that Oceanside is enjoying a time of revitalization and rebirth. Oceanside has become the new trendy, happening place to be and be seen. With its “rediscovery” and new found popularity, a resort hotel is in demand. This year, Oceanside awaits two new projects by Two Roads Hospitality together with S.D. Malkin Properties Inc. The project will encompass two blocks along Pacific Street with the Joie de Vivre boutique hotel situated on the north block and the Destination Resort to the south. Designed by architectural firm, Delawie of San Diego, the project will be built by DPR Construction. When completed, the projects will provide Oceanside resort accommodations worthy of a city in renaissance. From its earliest years, Oceanside advertised itself as a “seaside resort.” When Andrew Jackson Myers first acquired 160 acres to build his new city, he built a bathhouse just below the bluff on the beach (located where the current Beach Community Center now stands). He then arranged excursion trains that brought

prospective investors from Redlands, Riverside, Colton and Temecula to see the natural beauty of the coastline and offered a piece of paradise to would be buyers. Needed for a seaside resort was a substantial hotel, and in 1887 the beautiful South Pacific Hotel was built. It was located on Third (Pier View Way) and Pacific Streets. A.P.

of the hotel, which was four stories tall and faced the railroad track, instead of the beach, to entice train passengers stopping at the new city by the sea. On the wave of success, however, tragedy struck in June

South Pacific Hotel

pier was built in 1927 and The Strand was paved. With a beach gazebo or bandshell, the hotel was in a prime location for numerous events, including concerts and beauty contests. The name of the hotel changed again in the 1950s to the Colonial Inn. In 1965 plans were announced to demolish the aging structure and replace it with a $2 million commercial, recreational and apartment complex. The hotel that had stood for six decades and watched Oceanside grow and transform, was at the end of its lifespan. The hotel was torn down the following year but the land was never developed and stood vacant for forty years until the Wyndham Resort was built.

of 1896 when the magnificent South Pacific Hotel caught on fire. The volunteer fire department did not have adequate equipment and the hotel guests along with city residents watched helplessly as the fire engulfed the entire structure. There was no insurance and owner could not be persuaded to rebuild. Without its grand hotel, Oceanside suffered a tremendous blow. It wouldn’t be until 1904 when a new hotel was built, the El San Luis Rey. Named after the Mission San Luis Rey, the hotel was located at Third (Pier View Way) and Pacific streets near the same location as the South Pacific Hotel. It was stained a dark brown, built three stories tall and faced the Pacific Ocean. The Redlands Citrograph shared the news with its readers and added: “Oceanside has always seemed to us to be one of the finest seaside resorts.” The El San Luis Rey Hotel was touted as “first class in every respect.” It featured 36 “well-appointed and elegantly furnished” rooms, with “large, well-kept grounds made more beautiful by the landscape gardener’s art”.

While Oceanside waits for the new hotel projects to break ground and begin construction, Oceanside continues to beckon tourists and offers itself as a resort city with amenities most cities cannot offer: namely the longest wooden pier on the West Coast, a small craft harbor, an historic California Mission, paved strand, 3 ½ miles of beach with public access along the Pacific Ocean, and a variety of museums, eateries and established microbreweries. Oceanside’s greatest asset is its proximity to the beach and with a name that says it all, Oceanside still captures the imagination of tourists. Jeremy Cohen, director at S.D. Malkin Properties said of the impending projects: “From first seeing the site in 2004, we had the vision that Oceanside would become a world-class beach resort destination. We have been committed to this project for over 12 years and are thrilled that it is now coming to fruition.” Photos courtesy Oceanside Historical Society

The local paper listed the guest list weekly and visitors from all over the country stayed in Oceanside resort hotel. Folks came as far away as Denver, Chicago, New Orleans, Boston, Philadelphia and New York. By 1922 the El San Luis Rey was renamed the Beach Hotel and eventually its dark exterior was painted white.

NORTH SAN DIEGO NA ACP – A MISSION OF P E A C E, H O P E A N D O P P O R T U N I T Y The North San Diego County NAACP serves 17 communities in North County and seeks to include and welcome all members. Satia Austin, President of the organization since 2013, became involved in 1998, as its youngest member. Austin came from New York as a young military wife. She attended MiraCosta College where she soon became President of the Black Student Union. Austin said her involvement in the NAACP was motivated by the need to create opportunities for all people. As a mother of three young boys, she wanted to inspire them, and other children, and to help create a world where they could thrive. She added that “you can’t complain about something you’re not involved in” and her involvement in her community through the NAACP is part of a solution. They seek to eliminate disparities in education, health and economic development while striving to provide a voice for everyone along with a sense of worth and belonging. Austin asserts that it is important to be kind to everyone, be good neighbors and citizens. While the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People organized 108 years ago, the local chapter of the NAACP was started in the 1960s by Charlesetta Allen, a resident of Oceanside’s Eastside neighborhood. Mrs. Allen, a pillar of her community, started to feed Marines and provide them a welcome place to be. Through one woman’s act of kindness a movement was born. Members met in homes in Oceanside and Vista. Long time members that are still active today include Willie Little and Gwen Sanders. Currently, the organization has a 20 member board and a diverse membership of about 300. They welcome all ethnicities who wish to serve the community and help others succeed. They meet monthly on the third Thursday of each month in a local community building. 8 | Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Business Journal

North San Diego NAACP Board of Directors

Today the North San Diego NAACP continues a mission of peace, hope and opportunity. President Austin said the chapter is involved in Operation Hope Vista, feeding the homeless, and “Back to School, Stay in School”, a program that provides free backpacks and school supplies to hundreds of students in grades K-12. In addition, the organization provides a mentoring program to assist young students and help them succeed. The longest running events presented by the organization, is the Juneteenth Cultural Celebration for over 45 years and the Dr. Martin Luther King Breakfast for over 30 years. Their other events include: The Dr. King Day of Service, an outreach partnership that brings together several other organizations, including MiraCosta College; Salute to Women of Color, in celebration of Women’s History month to honor women who make a contribution to the community; and a host of public forums, health fairs, educational opportunities and PSAT’s with the Princeton Review. The NAACP supports the message of opportunity for all, encouraging everyone to do their part as a citizen. Austin echoes that message and includes “that if everyone would look past the hate we would have a better world to live in.” If you want to get involved and make a difference, or for more information visit their website at www.nsdcnaacp.org Spring 2018 | www.oceansidechamber.com


OPERATION APPRECIATION 2018 a wristband which will provide them access to the Fun Zone and delicious food.

The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce is proud to host an annual event on Armed Forces Day in May of each year.

Active-duty military from Camp Pendleton and other local military bases are invited down to the Oceanside Pier for live entertainment, a children’s fun zone and food. With a valid military id, active duty military and their dependents, will receive

While this event seeks to thank active duty military and their dependents, we invite members of the general public to participate and join in the celebration. Tickets can be purchased to for the Fun Zone and food is available for purchase at a variety of beach vendors. Opening Ceremonies will begin at the Pier Amphitheater at 11:00 a.m. Local dignitaries and military officials will be on hand to greet the crowds and support this event. After opening ceremonies, food service will begin in the Oceanside Community Center-free to active duty military and dependents. There will be hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken wings provided by local restaurants, including Hunter Steakhouse and Buffalo Wild Wings, served throughout the day. The fun continues as live entertainment will rock the crowd from the Amphitheater. Camp Pendleton’s Mechanized Museum will provide land and amphibious vehicles for display and the Navy’s LCAC from ACU 5 will land on the beach north of the pier. Join us for the fun and show your appreciation to the brave men and women who fight to keep us free!

M I R A CO S TA CO L L E G E : B U I L D I N G O U R F U T U R E by Dr. Sunny Cooke, Superintendent/President MiraCosta College Fewer than 18 months have passed since voters overwhelmingly approved Measure MM, a $455 million construction bond that is allowing MiraCosta to make a significant investment in our region through the modernization of facilities and instructional technology. Yet, we already have made several significant benchmarks in the construction process. In addition to providing quality education to our region’s future labor force, MiraCosta College has a substantial economic impact on our community. Students who have attended MiraCosta College in the past 30 years alone contribute more than $430 million in added regional income annually due to their higher earnings and the increased output of area businesses. In all, MiraCosta College generates an economic impact of more than $338 million annually to the region’s gross regional product, enough to support more than 5,000 jobs in its service area. The benefit MiraCosta provides is about to get larger. The $2.2 million modernization of a major classroom building at the San Elijo Campus will begin this summer, and planning is well under way on a number of other notable projects. To ensure the bond money remains in our economy, the MiraCosta College Board of Trustees made a commitment to give preference to local companies. Our independent citizen’s bond oversight committee, formed just last spring, is regularly reviewing all financials, as well as design and construction status as part of the important work in ensuring transparency, accountability, and good stewardship of public funds. In the fall, MiraCosta earned the highest ratings from both Moody’s Investors Services (Moody’s) and Standard & Poor’s Global (S&P). The high rating equates to lower borrowing costs, more money to invest in construction and improvements, and greater savings to our local taxpayers. When MiraCosta College placed Measure MM before voters in November 2016, we made a promise to modernize and upgrade our campuses in a fiscally responsible manner. Under the guidance of our bond program manager, Kitchell, a firm that has worked with colleges and universities across the country, we already have several projects in the design phase and the Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs) are finalized. Among the projects in the first phase of construction, the Oceanside Campus will undergo a transformation 12 | Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Business Journal

of the outdated track and field to include a soccer field fit for international competitions, a new multi-purpose field, and a new jogging-and-walking path for the entire community to enjoy. Additional Measure MM projects in the design phase include a new student resources building at the Community Learning Center and a new student services and administration building at the San Elijo Campus. Several additional projects will be entering the design phase by summer, among them are a new allied health, chemistry and biotechnology building, student services building, and a gymnasium complex at our Oceanside Campus. More is on the way. Upcoming improvements include expanding the Oceanside Campus Veterans Center, upgrading career training facilities, modernizing instructional technology, improving access for students with disabilities, and updating science centers and labs to allow for state-of-the-art courses in biology, chemistry and physical sciences. While we are looking to ensure our Measure MM designs will be as appealing aesthetically as they are functional, it’s important to know these projects are not for show. A recent study of facility conditions found that close to two-thirds of our buildings at the Oceanside Campus alone need to be renovated or replaced. Our students and faculty deserve world-class instructional facilities and our community deserves a well-trained workforce. For 84 years MiraCosta College has served our community, and we thank you for your continued support. Spring 2018 | www.oceansidechamber.com

VANC is a vibrant gathering place in North San Diego County, where all Veterans, active-duty military, and their loved ones can reach out for help and community.

Free food and drinks will be provided. Questions? Call VANC at 760-722-1277, or go to www.VANCNorthCounty.org

CITY OF OCEANSIDE POTENTIAL SALES TAX MEASURE (Source: City of Oceanside)

POTENTIAL LOCAL FUNDING COULD:

Oceanside is a great place to live, do business, raise a family and retire. Residents have indicated, through a recent feasibility study, a very high favorability for the quality of life and city services. The City of Oceanside has been identifying urgent needs that must be met to help make our city even better.

Ensure that we have enough police officers to respond quickly to 9-1-1 emergencies and reduce gang activity and drug-related crime

BACKGROUND: The cost of public safety is increasing every year, and the City requires additional resources to maintain safety and our level of police officers, firefighter/paramedics and lifeguards. Improving local streets, sidewalks and essential infrastructure will also help keep Oceanside safe. Making necessary improvements to our streets and repairing potholes ensures that streets and sidewalks enhance and complement, rather than detract from our beautiful, natural environment. To provide stable, local funding to meet these needs, the City of Oceanside is considering placing a one-half cent sales tax measure on the November 2018 ballot. www.oceansidechamber.com | Spring 2018

Ensure that we have enough firefighter/paramedics and lifeguards to respond quickly to 9-1-1 emergencies Enhance public infrastructure including sidewalks, storm drains and other infrastructure Repair potholes and maintain local streets Keep public areas clean and free of graffiti Should this ballot measure be passed by Oceanside voters, all money raised would remain right here in Oceanside, and could not be taken away by the state. The measure would require independent citizens’ oversight and public audits.
