He is a recipient of the OASIS Award for outstanding instructor from Grossmont Adult School. Students nominate their instructors for the award. OASIS is an acronym for Outstanding Adult Student, Instructor, Staff.

State of the City - 2015

Good afternoon and Happy New Year. Today I am happy to present on behalf of my fellow Council members to La Mesa’s residents the State of the City Address. 2015 was a very busy year with much to celebrate.

Last month the City completed the $5.8 million Downtown Streetscape Project which began during the summer of 2014. The entire city Council would like to thank the businesses, residents and visitors for their patience during construction.  Our new downtown village has been brightened, we have created a walkable, urban village with a fresh new look. As part of the Council’s direction to increase the visibility of the City, a marketing campaign was launched to encourage visitors and residents alike to shop, dine and explore La Mesa and visit its “Hidden Gems” during the holidays.

In support of downtown development, the Council last year adopted a zoning ordinance amendment to revise parking requirements and establish an optional parking in-lieu fee program in the downtown commercial zone. This initiative is intended to promote economic development and business growth in the village. 

La Mesa welcomed a new Police Chief in 2015. Chief Vasquez has hit the ground running and his leadership team has initiated several new efforts including an 

Abandoned Vehicle Abatement (AVA) program. The Police…
