Fallbrook Revitalization
It was a full house for the first ever Fallbrook Revitalization meeting. We heard from many citizens about issues in the community including, homelessness, parking and traffic.
This was an important first step to bring County resources to Fallbrook. Community members will now create sub-committees and work with County staff to come up with solutions.
Borrego Springs will host a similar revitalization meeting on May 7th, along with Valley Center on August 20th.

She has been teaching English Sign Language on Tuesdays and Thursday for more than two years. She started out with small classes and has now grown to 40 students with a waiting list. Ms. Emson developed a curriculum for her classes, with focus on vocabulary and grammar building language skills relevant to practical daily application.
