Oceanside CA— Tune to KOCT – Channel 18 – this Thursday August 6th at 6 pm for a new Journalist Roundtable with an interesting line-up of topics such as the proposed 85/15 Plan from Caruso Affiliated that will create an open-air shopping, dining and entertainment promenade (26 acres) at the Canon Road and I-5 junction while also setting aside dedicated open space for hiking trails and agriculture.
