In Other Action...

Reacting to JSerra High School's request to build temporary bleachers, concession stands and portable restrooms for its campus football field, resident Dave Solt told commissioners the additions would be “inappropriate ... so close to residences.”

Blas Aguilar Adobe Project

The commission also discussed preliminary development plans for the Blas Aguilar Adobe Nature Education Facility, which will be repaired and landscaped under a $498,000 grant.

Construction is set to begin in early spring.
