Application for cell site atop Carmel Valley Library withdrawn

A controversial proposed cell site to be housed on the Carmel Valley Library is no longer being considered.

The proposal had included 13 antennas and 24 new remote radio units mounted inside raised cupola enclosures on the library.

Suspects attempt to rob Solana Beach bank ATM

An attempt to break into an ATM at a Solana Beach bank branch early Sept. 2 using a cutting torch ended with the cash machine in flames and two suspects fleeing empty-handed.
The suspects set off the ATM’s alarm during the failed heist shortly after 2:30 a.m. in the 600 block of Lomas Santa Fe Drive near Glencrest Drive, according to sheriff’s Lt. Clayton Lisk.
Lisk said the suspects used spray paint to cover nearby surveillance cameras.
They sped off in a black truck with a deputy in pursuit, but abandoned it and ran off after about a minute, Lisk said. A subsequent search failed to locate the pair, according to the lieutenant.

Solana Beach homeowners get OK to repair bluff-top seawall

The Solana Beach City Council recently gave several bluff-top property owners the go-ahead to better protect their homes by repairing a seawall.

After a coastal bluff failure in September 1998, the 352-foot-long seawall along Pacific Avenue was built in 2000 to prevent eight houses from eventually plunging into the ocean.

But the man-made walls prevent erosion, the natural process that creates beaches.
