Uphold Planning Commission's Unanimous Approval of OceanKAMP - Sign-On Opportunity

We were thrilled to earn unanimous approval from the Oceanside Planning Commission last month. Despite the unanimous approval and unprecedented community support, two groups appealed the decision to City Council. These appeals are scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, October 5 at City Council at 6 pm. 

We need your help telling the City Council to uphold Planning Commission’s unanimous approval of OceanKAMP.

You can help in two ways! First, submit your letter of support below. Second, sign up to speak at the City Council hearing by emailing Summer Bales at summer@intesacom.com

OceanKAMP will positively support Oceanside by:

  • Producing revenue to the City of Oceanside that can be reinvested into local parks, roads and infrastructure
  • Providing commercial and retail space for local businesses to grow and thrive
  • Creating up to 700 new homes attainable for families of all income levels
  • Honoring and sustaining Oceanside’s surf culture for future generations
  • Providing a state-of-the-art wave lagoon that will produce near perfect waves year-round

The Oceanside Magazine Stay and Play Local Spotlight: Blessed & Boujee Boutique

Did you know "Boujee" means luxurious in lifestyle, yet humble in character? Blessed & Boujee Boutique inspires women to shop confidently! The Boujee Boutique offers accessories, shoes, fun gifts, and stylish clothing for all women including those blessed with curves! 


Amanda Marie’s (owner of Blessed & Boujee Boutique) goal is to inspire other women to be strong and independent by providing a one-stop fashion boutique that meets all their needs. After spending most of her life struggling with her weight, Amanda came across a fun clothing line while browsing Facebook. The moment she tried on her first order, she knew she had never felt this good in her skin as a plus-size woman. Amanda was so excited about her new outfits and wanted to share it with fellow plus-sized women! She signed up to sell clothes as a side gig before leaving NY and that gave her an idea. Once Amanda found attire that made her feel amazing, she knew she wanted to inspire other women to feel the same in their skin too! She wanted them to feel as inspired and excited as she did the first time a dress fit perfectly. She wanted them to feel supported and blessed. And that's how Blessed & Boujee Boutique was born!

(By: District Attorney Summer Stephan) - No longer is identity theft about safeguarding your mail, credit cards and bank account. Bad actors have evolved in their treachery and have moved on to stealing homeownership through title fraud.
