La Perla del Mar Chapel, 205 Windward Ave. in Shell Beach is a favorite location to introduce and “get to know” our guests speakers! Doors open at 5:45 (or a little earlier); Mr. Lewis will cover his background and plans as City Manager, his vision for Shell Beach and the Streetscape Plans, and will allow time for questions.
David Addamo, from Red Carpet Winery (which has a new tasting room in Pismo Beach) will be pouring some of his premier wines. Light appetizers will also be available.
The exhibits for the Shell Beach Streetscape working drawings, which have been updated since our March 11 SBIG meeting to include 11 foot travel lanes, will be on display at the the meeting. This is your opportunity to vote for your preferences for seating, trash receptacles, tree grates, lighting, fencing and pavers. After compiling the votes, the SBIG board will be making recommendations for the site amenities. Erik Eldridge, Project Engineer, will take these recommendations to the Planning Commission.
