A hearty goodbye

Kath has been an incredible leader for the HTC, and the Hillcrest community in general! We’re so sad to see her go but are so excited for what’s ahead for her!

I’ve got big shoes to fill as incoming chair of HTC and look forward to meeting with and continuing to hear resident’s concerns and seeking solutions to make our neighborhood the best in San Diego.

BCB was open that morning while fire crews responded. I’d hoped that meant no long-term impact. Best wishes to both BCB and Fix on a speedy return.
