Public Comments:
Bob Bellamy stated that there was a robbery on the green belt near the vetinary clinic at 21st street. He said that four men accosted a single man with a backpack and robbed him. Because Lt. Scott Winks was not present due to a bad back, no additional details were available.

Residents on 4th street have observed a man on a skateboard with a backpack taping off the bathrooms at 4th street using yellow crime tape. After the bathrooms are taped off, they’ve observed many people entering and leaving, possibly doing drug deals. It was suggested that if you see bathrooms out of order on the green belt, contact the police.

Guest Speaker: David Silverman, our insurance agent, gave a presentation updating the assembly on the state of our insurance, community center value, etc. He emphasized the ongoing need to require a certificate of additional insurance from all who use the Sunset Beach Community Center and Nobles Family Community Center building in order to minimize any risk to our community.

SBACC (Sunset Beach Area Council Meeting) Update:
An update on the SBACC meeting was given. The meeting was held at the Huntington Beach City Offices on November 13, 2017. Several topics were addressed.

  • Short term rentals – Currently, the proposal is to issue conditional use permits for rentals of less than 30 days. These will require input from neighbors (public hearing).
  • Group Homes (sober living, rehab, etc) are limited to 6 people or less per home. Currently facilities are renting adjacent properties and creating communities that are larger than the intended 6 per property. HB is looking into legal remedies.
  • Speeding on North & South Pacific – Some residents have requested speed bumps. That request was denied.
  • Lifeguard stands have been moved down to the Warner turnaround as a result of the requests at our last SBCA meeting.
    • A big shout out to HB Lifeguards for moving the stands quickly!
