From the in box:
Now that the Encinitas City Council has voted unanimously not to change the zoning/public/semi-public usage for Pacific View Elementary School, the property most-likely will not be developed for residential use. This means the community has a shot at giving it a second life as a downtown Encinitas cultural art center for the 101 Artist's Colony that has been searching for a permanent location. Join us for an 'Art Rally' at the Elks Lodge, 1393 Windsor Drive, Cardiff. Nov. 20th, 7:30 PM.
The 101 Artists Colony's favorite band, Rocket Science, will be playing and the dance floor will be wide open. There will be some discussion about how to proceed with a proposal to the Encinitas Union School District to lease the school out and create an income stream for the school district, but, for the most part we will be just kickin' up our heels before we start the hard work of making this dream a reality. For more info call Danny at 944-6027.
We believe any future project on the Pacific View site should have four guiding principles:
1. Ongoing education; including art and nutrition along with our children’s access to the site.
2. Historic Preservation and adaptive re-use of the existing buildings.
3. That it remain in a public use; zoned public/semi-public.
4. That it provide revenue to the EUSD and/or Encinitas Education Foundation for the benefit of our schools
