Solana Beach changes curfew to 10 p.m.

The Solana Beach City Council unanimously amended two city ordinances at its May 12 meeting.

Solana Beach will remain consistent with the county of San Diego in terms of juvenile curfew. The county recently amended its curfew ordinance to begin at 10 p.m. instead of 11 p.m. in unincorporated areas. The new curfew hours for minors will be 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Mayor Tom Campbell received a letter from county Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Pam Slater-Price asking Solana Beach to “align” itself with the county and cities of San Diego, Santee, La Mesa and El Cajon in starting its curfew an hour earlier. In the letter, Slater-Price said it would aid law enforcement operations, citing statistics that earlier curfews curtail juvenile violence.

Several exceptions will be made to the curfew, such as the accompaniment of a responsible adult, or travel to and from work or an educational activity.

The city also amended its recycling ordinance to essentially include retail businesses.

Solana Beach was one of the first cities, as far back as 1993, to require recycling by single- and multi-family housing units, office building owners and tenants, hospitality industry owners and occupants, and industrial facilities. However, that ordinance omitted retail businesses.

The council unanimously approved amending the ordinance to include “all” residential, business and industrial facilities. City Manager David Ott said the move should save money for retail stores by reducing the costs associated with trash disposal.
