Police Department Debuts New Patch Design

The Coronado Police Department has a new official patch after a yearlong grassroots effort from the police officers themselves. Uniformed personnel now sport the new patch, which debuted last week. During the design process, there were several modifications to create a final product that looks modern yet still pays homage to all previous patches with the City’s seal as the focal point. 
City Hall Reopens to All Walk-in Visitors

Coronado City Hall has reopened after closing two weeks ago due to employee COVID-19 cases. Since no new cases have been reported during the past two weeks, walk-in visitors may once again drop in to City Hall without an appointment. The City is doing its best to minimize exposure to the public inside City Hall and closely monitored the situation. Thanks to the community for your patience.
Annual Slurry Seal Work to Begin
The City will soon begin its annual slurry sealing of certain streets in town. Slurry operations will take place Tuesday-Saturday, Feb. 1-5, and on Monday, Feb. 7. Work to prepare for the slurry seal was completed earlier this week with crack-filling, striping removal and dig-out repairs. Seven days after the slurry sealing work is completed, the contractor will install new pavement striping. The City also will complete several projects recommended by the City’s Active Transportation Plan. Exhibits illustrating the improvements can be viewed by clicking the Slurry Seal link below. The City applies slurry seal to extend the life of its streets. Each street is refreshed with a slurry seal every seven years. Slurry seal is composed of asphalt emulsion, fine aggregates, mineral filler, various additives, and water, all of which are mixed and applied from a truck. It is a cost-effective and proven way to extend the life of roads.

Streets and parking lots to receive slurry seal:

  • Orange Avenue from First to Second streets

  • Fifth Street from Alameda to Glorietta boulevards

  • Tenth Street from Alameda Boulevard to Orange Avenue

  • Olive Avenue from D Avenue to Alameda Boulevard

  • Alameda Boulevard from First Street to Olive Avenue

  • J Avenue from First to Tenth streets

  • I Avenue from First to Tenth streets

Stuffing, a 5-month-old brown tabby, is this week’s Pet of the Week. Stuffing is part of the Dinner Party kittens, including Squash and Croissant, who are ready for new homes. When Stuffing arrived, she needed eye surgery to repair her eyelids and, because of that, she has a slight vision impairment and will always have a small squint to her eyes. Despite that, Stuffing is sweet and loving. Her adoption fee is $75. To find out more about Stuffing, call Paws of Coronado, which runs the city’s Animal Care Facility at (619) 522-7371.
