Solana Beach recognized for Coast Highway 101 renovation

Solana Beach may be the second smallest city in the county, but it is receiving national attention for its work on Coast Highway 101.

Dangerous by Design 2014, a report by Smart Growth America’s National Complete Streets Coalition, recognized the city for its $7 million renovation of the roadway. Completed last year, the project features narrowed lanes, continuous sidewalks, curb extensions and mid-block crosswalks.

The report notes that Highway 101 was regularly used as an alternative route to Interstate 5, which resulted in drivers speeding through the historic downtown to the detriment of local businesses and pedestrians.

Solana Beach water district receives national award in financial reporting for eighth year

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented the Santa Fe Irrigation District the GFOA’s Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the District’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). This is the eighth year successively that SFID has received this award.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by the district and its management.

An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has also been awarded to the District’s Administrative Services Manager, Jeanne L. Deaver, for her responsibility in preparing the award-winning CAFR.

Del Mar suspends turf racing following another injury

Thoroughbred racing on the turf course at Del Mar was suspended for the rest of the week after a horse was seriously injured in a race July 31, the latest in a string of injuries and deaths at the track this
month.
In announcing the suspension, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club expressed
“deep sorrow” over the latest injury.
“We will continue efforts to improve the course during this down time
and hope to resume racing on it in the near future,” according to a statement.
The horse, a 4-year-old filly named Serious, suffered a sesamoid bone
injury in her left foreleg, track officials told The Orange County Register.
Officials originally said the horse was euthanized, but later said her
owners had sought veterinary care for her against the advice of the track
veterinarian, the newspaper reported.
Four other horses suffered fatal injuries on the turf track this month
and today’s injury was the first since measures intended to enhance safety on
the course were undertaken, according to news reports.
Races that had been scheduled to take place on the turf course will be
moved to the track’s Polytrack course, Del Mar officials said.
Four other horses have suffered fatal injuries on the track during this
year’s thoroughbred meet, which began on July 17.
