April 21, 2018 <br />West Coast Highway Landscaping Improvements Phase 1— Letter of Support <br />Dear City Council Members, <br />On behalf of our community and the Newport Shores Community Association (NSCA) Board of <br />Directors, I would like to express our appreciation and gratitude for the long awaited <br />commencement of landscaping upgrades along West Coast Highway in our neighborhood. <br />Residents from the NSCA remember participating in the community charrettes representing our <br />neighborhood during the planning process and have been very eager to see the results of their <br />volunteerism. We want to acknowledge staff's hard work and engagement with Caltrans together <br />with council's dedication and commitment to seeing these upgrades come to fruition. So, on <br />behalf of NSCA we say "thank you" to all who have played a hand in finally making this a reality. <br />While there is much to be thankful for, our community is reeling from the recent fire impacting the <br />Pine Knot Motel. Though the Pine Knot normally provokes the ire of the community, in this case <br />there is already a go -fund page set up to help the unfortunate souls that were living in the <br />ramshackle motel; clothes and other donations are being accepted at nearby restaurants. There <br />are many opinions on what may or may not happen as a result of this fire. We hope that the City is <br />a supportive partner in the process of re -building or re -envisioning the property and seizes upon <br />this opportunity to bring positive solutions and improvements to our neighborhood. <br />Newport Shores must not be overlooked as a front door to our great City. Our residents broadly <br />agree that we are a neighborhood within Newport Beach that still has examples of blight. We look <br />forward to your continued cooperation and commitment to improving our neighborhood. <br />Sincerely, <br />Rene Rimlinger, President <br />Newport Shores Community Association <br />511 CANAL STREET <br />NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA 92663 <br />
