A lot went on at today’s Imperial Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast today! The Chamber discussed its two big upcoming events on Mark 14th. The first being the Taste of IB that will take place that day from 1pm to 4:30pm. Tickets can be purchased the day of the event or you can go online and purchase your tickets ahead of time for $10 each at  There are only 300 tickets available so it is recommended that you purchase your tickets a head of time to be sure you will be able to attend. The Event will start at 300 Palm Avenue and go down to Seacoast Drive and finish at the pier and Portwood Plaza. Participating business will have samples of their food or wares or gifts and/or handouts available to those who attend the event.

That event will be followed by a free concert, the Symphony by the Sea, at 6pm at Portwood Plaza. It will feature San Diego State ensembles “Wind Symphony” & Symphony Orchestra”. It is being hosted by The City of Imperial Beach and The Unified Port of San Diego.

We will be having a lot more information in the next week on the businesses participating in the Taste of IB and any other important information regarding the event.

 The Imperial Beach Mayor, Serge Dedina, discussed many topics including that there will be meetings coming up soon on the situation with the Roundabout on 9th Street with a comment period before hand were citizens will be able to give their input and ideas on how the Roundabout should be handled and what can be done to make it work better. We will be publishing soon were you will be able to email your comments and ideas on the Roundabout and the date of the meeting as soon as it is formalized.

Also, the mayor went into a lot of detail on the situation with beach closures and addressing how to get that situation improved. There will be a meeting at the TJ Estuary on March 19th. We will have more details on that later and hope to do a detailed article on this problem.

He also discussed the growth of Imperial Beach and how we are quickly becoming a major destination city for tourist and visitors.

In all, it was a very upbeat meeting and great things seem to be in the future or Imperial Beach.

We would like to welcome the following, new members, to the IB Chamber of Commerce: The Wave Café,, Abbott Reality Group, Seacoast Reality Group and Ralston Team – Nobel Real Estate Services.
