The condition of many of our streets in the southwestern
part of the city.
The MMC peaker plant 350 feet away from homes, 20 feet away
from the front door of businesses, and 1300 feet from a school. This is
how much the city of Chula Vista cares about its residents. Is your
neighborhood next?
If we are going to protect our neighborhoods and get the city council to pay attention to the residents, we must organize, become informed and demand the right to vote. No more no bid contracts and secret meetings of council subcommittees. More at
PARK VIEW LITTLE LEAGUE 2008 10-11 ALL-STARS CONGRATULATIONS to our 10-11 All-Stars on a remarkable All-Star season. The 10-11's started their quest for the District 42 Championship on June 28th. After playing 12 games in the next 26 days they finished with a District 42 Championship, a Section 7 Championship, and finished 3rd in the Southern California Championship Tournament in Rialto, CA. That finish in the tournament ranks the Park View 10-11's 4th in the State of California. The 10-11's outscored their opponents 113-48 and as a team, they hit 26 home runs. This team has so much to be proud of. The entire Park View family is so proud of them. The 10-11 players have made memories that will last a lifetime. Thank You for another great run.

Mountain Hawk Park in Chula Vista overlooks Lower Otay Lake. The name of the park pays homage to the fact that the area is haven for birdwatchers. The 13 acre park has a very cool "spitting fountain" water feature for the kids to run through, several large covered picnic kiosks, an ampitheater, brand new playground equipment (for both big and little kids) and several multiuse sports fields. And there's plenty of grass for just running around. The park has some very nice bronze sculptures of the local wildlife for an artistic touch. And there's a lovely paved  trail that hugs the lakeshore for walking and biking if you're so inclined.
