This petition had 351 supporters

Join me in advocating for a new Ocean Beach Lifeguard Station! Last week, I made a motion to move $200,000 into the Ocean Beach Lifeguard Station project to begin the design process. The final step for approval will occur on Monday, June 5th at 2 PM, when the City Council will be asked to approve this allocation as part of this year's Budget Revision Process. Please share your support for a new OB Lifeguard Station by signing this petition which will let all members of the City Council know that this is a top priority for Ocean Beach! - Councilmember Lorie Zapf

Dear Councilmembers,

I am writing in support of Councilmember Zapf’s motion to allocate $200,000 to begin the preliminary engineering and design process for a new Ocean Beach Lifeguard Station.

The funding will help to narrow the scope, schedule and budget for the entire project by analyzing the operational needs of a new facility through engaging our Public Works staff in conversations directly with our Lifeguards and the San Diego Police Department. Among other things, it will review the additional amenities of a new station which may include but are not limited to, ADA review, new bathroom facilities, SDPD office space/facilities and a preliminary environmental assessment.  

The Ocean Beach Lifeguard Station was constructed almost 40 years ago. Since that time, the needs for a new station have grown with increased Lifeguard staffing along Sunset Cliffs. A new Ocean Beach Lifeguard Station will improve our Lifeguard's ability to respond to crucial water rescues and ensure they have the resources to keep us safe.

The public restrooms and shower facilities are also in desperate need of an upgrade and are used by thousands of locals and tourist every year. This project is listed as a top priority for the Ocean Beach Town Council and the Ocean Beach Planning Board. 

For the reasons stated above, I encourage you to support Councilmember Zapf’s allocation of $200,000 to the Ocean Beach Lifeguard Station as part of this year’s budget.
