Encinitas Senior Civil Engineer Greg Shields (in hat) addresses architectural representatives at a March 5 Pacific View walkthrough to acquaint them with the property and buildings before they submit preliminary design reports to the city by noon on March 19. Coincidentally, the 19th is the one-year anniversary of the Encinitas City Council's dramatic last-minute decision to buy Pacific View before it was slated to be auctioned off by the Encinitas Union School District.
