Yesterday, the La Jolla Town Council sent this letter to San Diego City Councilmember Joe LaCava:

Dear Councilmember LaCava,

Attached please find a letter from the La Jolla Town Council (LJTC) regarding the Torrey Pines Gliderport (TPG). This issue, which has a long history in La Jolla, appears to be escalating. LJTC heard from residents who feel they are unable to use this park and the TPG. We invited the management of TPG to attend our meeting on several occasions; however, they declined. Upon review, one factor which may help clear up a significant number of issues is the TPG Advisory Board. LJTC voted during its April 2021 meeting that the reconvening of the TPG Advisory Board would provide solutions for the concerns of La Jolla residents. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Respectfully,

James P. Rudolph
President
La Jolla Town Council

Dear Councilmember LaCava,

La Jolla Town Council (LJTC) reviewed several issues happening at the Torrey Pines Gliderport that were brought to our attention by residents of La Jolla. During our March 11, 2021, meeting, we reviewed a presentation on the Gliderport, and the issue was sent to committee for further review.

On April 8, 2021, the committee reported its findings to LJTC, which unanimously supported that the City of San Diego reconvene the Torrey Pines Advisory Board, as there are multiple issues occurring that are relevant but outside the purview of LJTC. We are requesting a review of issues regarding public safety and the right-of-way of tandem users in the park, as well as training. With respect to training, there are other areas in San Diego which presumably are more appropriate.

We also are requesting that the City of San Diego consider whether solo flyer pilots should have to pay annual membership fees or costs of insurance to fly at the Gliderport.

LJTC thanks you for your attention to this issue.

Respectfully,

James P. Rudolph
President
La Jolla Town Council
