Chula Vista, here are some essential tips to stay safe this weekend:
. Stay Informed: Remember 3-1-1 is your go-to for assistance. If you have a critical emergency, call 911. Keep up with weather updates and alerts including warnings and evacuation notices. Go to CalAlerts.org to sign up to receive alerts from your county officials. 
. Create an Emergency Kit: Stock up on essentials like water, non-perishable food, medications, flashlights, and batteries.
. Secure Outdoor Items: Bring in or secure any outdoor furniture, decorations, and loose items that could fly away in strong winds.
. Stay Indoors: Once the storm hits, stay indoors and away from windows. Find a safe, windowless room to take shelter in.
. Avoid Flooded Areas: Refrain from walking or driving through inundated regions, as they can be more hazardous than they seem.
. Charge Devices: Ensure your phones and other devices are fully charged ahead of time in case of power outages.
. Stay Connected: Keep in touch with family and friends. Let someone know your whereabouts and plans.
. Stay safe, ! 💙

Today, SANDAG, in partnership with the City of Chula Vista and the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS), announced a $21.5 million grant from the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) program for the Palomar Street Grade Separation Project.

This project involves creating a grade separation for Palomar Street, effectively separating it from a passenger and freight rail corridor, and eliminating a rail crossing that often delays drivers while enhancing safety measures for pedestrians and cyclists who travel along this corridor. The planned grade separation will lower Palomar Street under the MTS rail tracks.

Thank you to the U.S. Department of Transportation for investing in this project, our dedicated congressional delegation for their advocacy, Caltrans, SANDAG, City Staff, and the many supportive community groups.

Today, I was honored to attend the re-opening of Lauderbach Park after being closed for more than a year for renovations. The 3.9-acre park now features new basketball courts, a new synthetic turf multi-purpose field with lighting, new sidewalks, tot lots, restrooms, and enhanced landscaping.

Our families now have an outdoor space for fun, to relax, exercise, and enjoy nature. I look forward to seeing our community enjoy it.

Special thanks to the State of California and Chula Vista voters for allowing us to improve this park through Measure P. I would also like to thank our City staff, community partners, and everyone involved in making this possible.
