Honoring A Hero…Last week, we lost a young man named Yaroslav Katkov, an experienced CAL FIRE Firefighter from De Luz Station 16. Yaroslav proudly dedicated his life to serve and protect our community.
At the end of Wednesday’s board meeting we honored Yaroslav and his dedication to protecting San Diego.

Valley Center Revitalization Meeting
Yesterday, we held our first revitalization meeting in Valley Center. After hearing from the communities of Fallbrook and Borrego Springs, Valley Center gathered to talk about issues in their community.
It was great to see all of the residents coming together with County staff to talk about concerns in the community. We look forward to seeing the progress through the various sub-committees.
