1. Public Policy – A key role of a Chamber of Commerce is to provide a strong voice for the local business community. We will continue to work to be the articulate, respected, effective voice of the Oceanside business community. Our Public Policy Task Force will be reviewing and expanding our policy guidelines to ensure we can take quick action on the issues impacting local business. 2. Economic Development – We will support and encourage our City’s Economic Development Department in its efforts to bring new jobs to Oceanside. Along those lines, we will maintain our strong position on keeping our industrial and commercial land from being rezoned for other uses. We will support City initiatives that will help existing businesses grow and create jobs, and will oppose unnecessary and burdensome business regulations on a city and statewide level. 3. Workforce Development – We are committed to working with our local educational institutions at all levels to ensure that our students are entering the workforce with the skills that are needed by our business community. As an example, we will continue working closely with the Oceanside Unified School District in supporting their “Oceanside Promise” that every student will graduate college and career ready. 4. Military Outreach – The Chamber is expanding its military outreach to assist Marines and Sailors who are transitioning into our local workforce. Our Military Affairs committee will be developing internship and mentorship programs that will facilitate a smooth transition from military life into the business community.

candidate development for the City council seats in the districts. 6. Restaurant Committee/Association – Oceanside has become known as home to a wide variety of eating and drinking establishments. These businesses comprise the single largest category of businesses within the Chamber membership. We will be making a concerted effort to support the restaurant community by starting a committee that will provide marketing support, advocacy and informational resources for our local restaurants, breweries and coffee houses. We have already begun this effort by starting work on a new restaurant guide that will be out later this year. To implement the plan over the next few years, we have 6 task force groups, covering each of the 6 areas I just described. I would like to invite you, our Chamber members, to join a task force and use your knowledge and talent to support our efforts. Please feel free to call me at 760-722-1534 to discuss how you can participate. Thank you for your support of the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce.

EMERGING ISSUES CANNABIS ISSUE BRINGS LOCAL CONTROL TO THE FOREFRONT As Oceanside and other municipalities grapple with how to regulate the cannabis/marijuana industry, the issue of local control versus outside influence over zoning has surfaced as a major concern. The City of Oceanside’s Medical Marijuana Ad Hoc Committee has been working for several months to determine how our City will handle zoning and other important considerations related to this topic. The Committee, led by Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery and Councilmember Jerry Kern, has provided an opportunity for community members and city leaders to have an ongoing dialogue on the important issues surrounding cannabis. This process is being threatened by an outside group, advocating a “cookie cutter” approach across multiple jurisdictions. They have brought forth a ballot initiative called the “Cannabis Activity Zoning Ordinance of Oceanside”. This initiative could potentially demand a special election, with estimated costs of more than $700,000 to us as Oceanside tax payers. More importantly, if this initiative passes, it will destroy our local process and outsiders will dictate how Oceanside must handle the zoning of marijuana related businesses. Moreover, if this imposed zoning does not

serve the City well, it can only be overturned by yet another expensive ballot initiative. For the Chamber, this is not an issue of whether or not marijuana related businesses should be allowed in our City. There are good people on both sides of that argument. Regardless of whether the issue is marijuana or anything else, the Chamber supports local control over our land use and zoning. The process of community dialogue, with an ultimate decision by our elected City Council has served Oceanside well on other issues and should be allowed to play itself out. Why would we surrender this process to outside influences?

CHAMBER JOINS COALITION TO HELP STOP PROPOSED STATE-WIDE TAX ON WATER The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce joined a coalition in opposition to SB 623, which included language that would have established California’s first-ever statewide tax on residential and business water bills. In September, the Assembly Appropriations Committee sent it to the Assembly Rules Committee to make it a two-year bill, meaning the legislation will not be proceeding in 2017. The Chamber will continue to monitor this bill moving forward.

MISSION M ARKETPL ACE: O C E A N S I D E’S T H R I V I N G C E N T E R

COLLEGE BLVD

The Mission Marketplace Shopping Center at State Route 76 and College Boulevard is riding the wave of change. Despite economic challenges and current trends, it has a new tenant that is creating a lot of buzz and excitement. With a Target store opening in early November of this year, the future is bright for this retail center. The new Target location will encompass 89,000 square feet, employ 100 people, and feature a Starbucks. John Hickman, Managing Director of NewMark Merrill, says that the center’s tenant mix is as good as it’s ever been. The management company is adept at anticipating change and quick to transition. He notes that the surrounding area has continued to grow and mature and that working with the City of Oceanside has been a positive, pro-business experience. Built in 1990, Mission Marketplace has survived economic woes, market fluctuations and loss of anchor stores, landing on its feet with each change and managing to stay relevant. Omega Bikes and Victoria’s Mexican Food are two of the first independent retailers that have survived and thrived. The arrival of Sprouts Farmers Market brought increased interest and attracts consumers from as far away as Fallbrook, Bonsall and even Temecula. Cynthia Gonzalez, Senior Marketing Director, is on top of social media and marketing trends. She realizes that experiences, creating goodwill and memories, along with a variety of eateries and quality retail stores are the keys to success. Among the events that Gonzalez helps to plan is Military Mondays, offering discounts to Military and their families, the “Jingle Bell Jump” (Santa and his elves parachute in); “Oceanside’s Got Talent” talent show, and a Free Kids Zone which offers crafts, activities and even Trick-or-Treating. Consumers today have many choices, and in order to get them to buy, you have to get them there and keep them coming back. Creating traditions, a sense of belonging and a welcoming atmosphere are just as important as anchor stores. Mission Marketplace has gone to great lengths to create a unique connection with tenants as well as the buying public. They help to collect data on spending trends, interview store owners every month and helps merchants with marketing. Connecting to the community with the center is key, and Gonzalez is proud to host a number of community and family events that drive consumer traffic to Mission Marketplace and that provide good value, as well as memories. 4 | Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Business Journal

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT NORTH COUNTY VETERANS STAND DOWN BEGAN WITH A SIMPLE CONVICTION:

“THERE SHOULD BE A STAND DOWN IN NORTH COUNTY SAN DIEGO� With credit to San Diego Stand Down Founders, Robert Van Keuren and Dr. Jon Nachison who started their stand down thirty years ago in San Diego, Tom Cowan believed that North County should follow in that proud tradition of serving veterans in our community. After spending over a year talking to people and getting like minded veterans to adopt his idea for a Stand Down in the North County Area, The North County San Diego Veterans Stand Down (NCSDVSD) was established as a 501 c 3 charity. Our first stand down was completed in January of 2017 at Green Oak Ranch in Vista. The VA Medical and Benefits teams, provided an opportunity for our veterans to receive needed services. The Green Oak ranch staff allowed our men and women to eat and sleep in a safe environment and help get their lives back together. We could not have done this event without the North County community pulling together and helping us provide food, clothing, legal services and volunteers who made our veterans feel like the community was behind them. We hope to see you at our next stand down on January 25th28th in 2018. Please visit our website at www.ncstanddown. org to learn how you can volunteer, donate or register a veteran in need. You can reach us at 866 535-2038.

North County’s favorite family tradition returns Thanksgiving morning, when more than 9,000 runners and walkers from 46 states convene near the Oceanside Civic Center to “move their feet before they eat” at the 12th Annual Pacific Marine Credit Union O’side Turkey Trot and kids run. The 10k and 5K run/walk will kick off at 6:55 a.m. and 8:10 a.m. respectively, finishing on The Strand just south of the Oceanside Pier. A 5K walk begins at 8:45 a.m. The family-oriented event also includes one- to ¼-mile kids runs starting at 10:30 a.m., and a 3-day expo. The Turkey Trot welcomes businesses to participate by forming teams made up of employees and their families. Studies show that companies encouraging physical fitness benefit from happier employees and overall improved work production. The activity also brings employees together in team building.
