Solana Beach benefactors donate $25K for community center renovations

Solana Beach couple Peter House and Carol Childs have pledged a $25,000 donation toward the Fletcher Cove Community Center renovations.

After all the bids came in too high for this renovation project, city staff returned to the drafting table and found ways to cut costs. The project was put back out to bid in February, and a contract was awarded to Delta Builders for $267,475. City council also authorized $37,000 in redevelopment funds toward the project, in hopes of keeping some of the nicer amenities that had been cut out to reduce costs. Thanks to this donation from House and Childs, the city will be able to include even more of those original amenities in the project.

House is a board member of the Solana Beach Community Foundation, which has raised $185,000 for the project. Childs is president of the Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society, which has raised about $40,600 for the project.

    I think we’d all agree that no one should have to worry about being run over by a motor vehicle in their own shower.

This wasn’t recent, fortunately, but it comprise […]
