President's Letter--September 2020
Dear Olivenhain Neighbors,
Thank you to Jennifer Bishop for the photos.
Our new board of directors held an off-site outdoor planning retreat in August 2020. We refined our mission/purpose statement: The purpose of the OTC is to promote an appreciation of Olivenhain history for the public good of the community of Olivenhain. We do this through:
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) granted approval of the OTC's application to register for exclusive use of the term Colony Olivenhain in late August 2020. The official approval document from the USPTO is shown below. After another party attempted to use a similar term, the OTC Board of Directors applied to the USPTO for exclusive use of the term Colony Olivenhain based on the OTC's extensive use of this term since its formation in 1967. This approval from the USPTO now gives the OTC the exclusive right to use the term Colony Olivenhain or similar derivatives. Many thanks to our Vice President, Mark Mayer, for the many hours invested in this project.
A housing update was sent as a letter to the community (and you can sign up at EncinitasRRD.org to receive them as well). For the Goodson project, there will be a second attempt at a Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) on September 18th at 6:00 p.m., you can register for the Zoom meetings here https://encinitasblvdapts.wixsite.com/enci. A new bonus density project has been proposed for the balloon field across Ranch Santa Fe Rd from the Goodson site, and a CPP was held August 31st with public comments being taken through September 7th (email Andy Keane: [email protected]). The city also recently published a revised draft 6th cycle housing element. Comments are due by 5pm on September 2nd to [email protected]..

Olivenhain is a unique and history rich community. We are fortunate to have the Meeting Hall and grounds for our community events. The colonists had the foresight to set this area aside for the community. If only they know, it would remain the social gathering place in Olivenhain for more than 120 years. The Olivenhain Town Council now manages the grounds and buildings, but in the spirit of the colonists, it belongs to you, the community. When you join the Olivenhain Town Council, it isn’t just a membership; you are helping to preserve and perpetuate our unique heritage. Thank you for your membership and please tell a neighbor and encourage them to also join the Olivenhain Town Council. That can be done on the OTC website: www.olivenhain.org/membership
