Welcome to our first column! We, your PQ Town Council members, are excited to partner with 92129 Magazine to share information, solicit ideas, and encourage community participation. PQ is a vibrant and engaged community, and we’re only getting better.

In this inaugural column, we’d like to highlight the efforts of our Public Safety Committee, which is in the process of helping our neighbors create new Neighborhood Watch (NHW) groups and revive existing ones. Our main goal is to coordinate communication between the San Diego Police Department and PQ residents through their “e-blast” system in order to help prevent crime and apprehend suspects. Take the initiative and ask your neighbors if they are already part of a NHW or if they would like to be. If you have an existing NHW, please contact us so we can add your block captain to the contact list. This is an excellent opportunity to revive or update an existing NHW group. If you don’t have one and are interested in forming one, we can help you get started. Check our web site for emerging details on the upcoming NHW community meeting with Officer Steffen of the SDPD.

Keep an eye out for information on your Town Council’s many other ongoing projects, like our utility box public art, fundraising drive, and new banners around town. We are thrilled to be able to represent such an energetic and involved community, and we thank you for your continued interest in the Council. We invite everyone to register for community email updates on the Council web site or follow us on Facebook. As always, if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions, or would like to volunteer, please do not hesitate to contact us. Happy holidays!
