New sand notes from County Supervisor Dianne Jacob
A long-held dream ofre-opening the historic Stowe Trail to the public is finally becoming a reality.
MCAS Mirama rhas agreed to make the scenic path, which skirts th eeastern edge of the airbase, accessible again. Those wishing to hike o rbike along th etrail must obtain a permit.

I started working with military officials in 2001 to reopen the trail–and with our hiking and bikingc ommunity beforet hat. A big thank you to Marine Corps Col. Jason Woodworth and the San Diego Mountain Biking Association.
San Diego’s earliest pioneers createdt he StoweTrail in the 1800s. It’s so important to our history that the White House in 2000 designated it a “Millennium Trail.”
Helping our most vulnerable
I’ve teamed up with Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, Sharp Grossmont Hospital, GrossmontHealthcare District, Alzheimer's San Diego and others to help seniors who end up in crisis.
We’re developing a model for Alzheimer's patients that start with the call for help and ends with in-homeservices.
Too often, seniors who suffer from dementia end up in a hospital bed or a jail cell when steering them to services might be the best option.
The effort is an outgrowth of The Alzheimer’s Project, the county-led initiative to find a cure and help families struggling with the disease.
Parks and recreation
With m yfull support, the Board of Supervisors recently moved to tackle the policy and financial hurdles for building and maintaining parks. Parks keep our communities healthy and whole–and building and maintaining them is one of the county’s core responsibilities. We're aiming to make our awesome park system even better!
