Pier Utilities Replacement Project to Begin

The underside of the Oceanside Pier has water, wastewater, natural gas, electrical, and communication lines which support the lifeguard tower, fire hydrants, restrooms, lighting, 

restaurant, fish cleaning stations, and bait shop. Many of these utilities have achieved 35 years of service in the harsh marine environment. The replacement of the aging utilities will begin in November. Parking Lot 29 on the Strand, north of the Pier, will be closed during the construction. The lot closure is needed for the excavation and construction of water and sewer line connection points, meter, backflow, fire suppression appurtenances, construction staging, and materialsDetails

Brooks Street Swim Center Renovations

The Brooks Street Swim Center will soon be undergoing a $1.1M makeover. The renovations will include the replacement of the pool's deck, the replastering of the pool, and new mechanical equipment.  The pool is expected to be closed between January and June while work is underway. Programming at Brooks Street Swim Center will shift to Marshall Street Swim Center during the closure. The Marshall Street pool was replastered earlier this year and the newly opened William Wagner Aquatic Center is available year-round. 

Digital Equity Study Completed

Oceanside recently conducted a Digital Equity Study aimed at understanding and addressing the digital divide in our 

community.  A plan was developed through a community-wide effort to address this gap that affects thousands of people in Oceanside who have challenges accessing and using the Internet. The Study's resulting plan aims to increase access to afforable and reliable high-speed fiber, and expand access to digital devices and digital literacy. Details

Holiday Crime Prevention  

There are smart practices to employ this holiday season to prevent you from becoming a victim of theft. Never leave valuables like purses, phones, or wallets in shopping carts. Always remove valuables from your vehicle. Park in well-lit areas. When shopping online, schedule online deliveries for when you will be home, or have them delivered to your workplace. Utilize services like Amazon locker so you can pick up items at your convenience. More tips
