Muirs apparently leaving town, teachers' union detective discovers

 Times of San Diego:

Amid residency doubts, a private investigator hired by a local teachers union tailed the president of the San Dieguito school board at least twice to see if she went home after board meetings.

Instead, Maureen “Mo” Muir, the two-term board member, drove to hotels, including one in San Marcos, said Duncan Brown, president of the San Dieguito Faculty Association.

Brown said union money — he wouldn’t say how much — paid for the private eye.
Real estate sites show the Muir home having been listed for sale in 2019, and having a sale pending as of last week.

The Muirs burned a lot of bridges in the community and in their Republican Party with Mark Muir's dirty tricks robocall against fellow Republican Phil Graham in support of his wife's state assembly run.

Mark Muir remains Encinitas' all-time pension champion, at $199,680 per year.

After controlling the school board for years, the teachers' union now finds itself without majority control, and is attempting a recall of newly elected trustee Michael Allman.

SANDAG targets all of Encinitas Highlands, Orpheus neighborhoods for high-density transit center


The 2021 Regional Plan is a 30-year plan that considers how we will grow, where we will live, and how we will move around the region.

Mobility Hubs:

Mobility Hubs are communities with a high concentration of people, destinations, and travel choices. They offer on-demand travel options and supporting infrastructure that enhance connections to high-quality Transit Leap services while helping people make short trips around the community on Flexible Fleets. Mobility Hubs can span one, two, or a few miles based on community characteristics and are uniquely designed to fulfill a variety of travel needs while strengthening sense of place.

By 2050, it is anticipated that the Mobility Hub network could serve approximately half of the region’s population and more than two-thirds of the region’s jobs.

"Supportive Land Use" (think UTC):
A healthy mix of land uses, including jobs, housing, shopping, and recreation, supports a variety of community activities.
