Community Notes:

Public Invited to Help Design Oxford Street Neighborhood Park
Workshop Set For November 24
Help the City of Chula Vista develop a neighborhood park for you!

A community workshop will be held November 24 at Harborside Elementary School from 6-8 p.m. Residents are invited to participate in the planning process for a brand new park on Oxford Street, located between Industrial Boulevard and Broadway.

This year, the City spent $2.3 million to purchase the property and identified the land as a future neighborhood park. A financing plan was developed, and $1.5 million was budgeted for construction.

During the workshop, design proposals will be presented and discussed by staff members from the City’s Recreation and General Services Departments. Community members are encouraged to offer their ideas and opinions on the proposals.

The workshop will be held in the Harborside Elementary School Auditorium. The school is located at 681 Naples Street, Chula Vista.

For more information, please call the General Services Department at (619) 397-6351.

Assemblywoman Horton Offers Internship Opportunities

Assemblywoman Shirley Horton announces the opportunity for students to participate in an internship with her District Office.

“Interns will gain valuable knowledge and experience by working in a challenging political environment while being exposed to state politics,” said Assemblywoman Horton. “While having the opportunity to interact with my staff, interns will learn the roles those individuals play in decision-making and problem solving.”

Duties for interns include answering constituent telephone calls, filing, and providing administrative support for staff. Interns may also help with drafting letters, referring correspondence to state agencies, researching information for our bi-monthly newsletter, tracking Assembly and Senate bills, and working with the staff in various projects as needed. They may also have the opportunity to attend community meetings and events.

The Internships are non-paid, however school credit may be earned. Students must be available at least 4 hours a week and the schedule is flexible for participants. Please have interested students contact Michelle Bellis at (619) 462-7878 or e-mail
