Pacific Beach has become a hotspot for the college drinking crowd. For most PB residents, the party is out of control. Pacific Beach has 18 times the amount of crime compared to the city average, according to a report conducted by the Pacific Beach Planning Group. Pacific Beach community members are calling for regulations on bars but the requests are not being welcomed by business owners.

In order for these regulations to be put in place, the idea must be brought to city hall by Councilman Faulconer, who is not in favor of the idea. We will discuss the report conducted by the Pacific Beach Planning Group, and how residents are trying to encourage Conditional Use Permits for bars in Pacific Beach.

We invite you to check out our website detailing many of the alcohol issues in Pacific Beach including many videos shot throughout the last two years. This is an issue that will not go away because businesses think it should. The greater public is entitled to a safe, clean beach community. Just because a dozen or so bar and *restaurant* owners want to continue plundering our community for profits does not make it right or good. How about these business *leaders* stop belittling community residents and sit down and start working out solutions. It's laughable that these businesses say they want more people to come here when we're largely known as douchebag-central. Get over yourselves guys and start being community members not community-profiteers.
