Sandwiched between Del Mar and Encinitas on the Pacific shoreline is Solana Beach, with just 3 1/2 square miles, and the second smallest population in the county. There are 13,400 people in Solana Beach, which was incorporated in 1986 and celebrated its 20th anniversary this year.

Solana Beach is a quaint, coastal community that is experiencing growing pains. Some of the key challenges the city is facing are the expensive ongoing problem of beach erosion, a special election on March 7 to determine if city should set limits on "mansionization," and a large mixed-use development project called Cedros Crossing planned to be built at the city's train station. Host Gloria Penner talks with Solana Beach Mayor David Powell about these and other issues facing the city.
