Farmers markets are a critical ingredient to our nation’s economy, food systems, and communities. The markets bring healthy options to low-income, food-insecure places and make fresh produce more affordable. Many accept federal nutrition benefits (including SNAP and WIC), and allow low-income families to maximize these benefits through programs such as Double Up Food Bucks, Produce Plus, Market Match, and Market Money, (brookings.edu).

Dear Mayor Faulconer,
I (own, manage, work at) the (name of business), a small business in the City of San Diego that is currently closed due to COVID-19. So far, we estimate that we have lost (x amount of dollars) due to the closure.
Thank you for recently making $6 million of the City’s current budget available for small businesses. Realizing you and the City Council are facing tough decisions regarding the FY21, I was glad to see the federal government issue $249 million to the City to assist with COVID-related loss and expenses.
The City needs its small businesses to survive, and right now the small businesses like (name of business) need help to do that. Can you please make $100 million of the federal money available as soon as possible so we can survive and thrive together?
The 30th Street Pipeline Replacement Project will replace 5.7 miles of water main within the North Park, Golden Hill and Southeastern communities. This project will help the City of San Diego better serve its communities, improve service reliability, reduce maintenance needs, and lessen the risk of future water main breaks. The project will also increase pedestrian access by installing curb ramps at several intersections throughout the project area.
As news develops with recommendations for social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, North Park’s businesses are having to adapt and comply with regulations while still meeting their customers’ and their employees’ needs.
