June 15, 2015 (San Diego’s East County) – Helix Water District’s Board of Directors will vote on whether or not to close the campground at Lake Jennings in Lakeside. The vote is set for Wednesday, June 17th at 2 p.m. at the board meeting at the district’s headquarters, 7811 University Avenue in La Mesa.
The vote is slated despite huge gains made in stemming financial losses, from $200,000 in 2013 to just $24,000 this year, plus increased profitability of other attractions and activities with potential for more, including state approval to add kayaks just last month.
Director Kathleen Coates-Hedberg urges the public: “If you want to see Lake Jennings Campground stay OPEN for the future and would like to voice your opinion, please come to the Board meeting or send an email to our Board Secretary and she will forward to Board Members.
