HelgrensSTOP the City Of Oceanside from shutting down an Iconic Oceanside family run business,  Please CLICK HERE to sign a petition or visit the landing to sign in person,
 
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT at the upcoming April 19, 2017 City Council Meeting! If you want to speak to the counsel please arrive before 5:00 pm to submit your request to speak. The Oceanside Sea Center has restarted their public campaign against Helgren's and we NEED our loyal customers, fisherpeople, and community neighbors to stand with us and speak out. The City needs to hear your voices as your voices are what matter to them most.
 
Helgren's has financially invested in and branded their current location for the last 38 years, working with local schools, charities, fishing clubs, youth organizations, and various military organizations. We have survived downed economies, environmental changes that affected the local fisheries, numerous changes in City government, years with NO harbor management, In-adequate dredging causing an inability to safely conduct our business on a daily basis, an evicted tenant who has decided to steal the likeness of our landing and use our image to advertise his own interests and smear campaign (facebook page, press releases) while we still occupy it and hold the lease, an evicted tenant who for unknown reasons the city has allowed to breach our current contract and operate his business from his temporary birthing location, only paying slip rent, not even closely equal to what Helgren's has to pay, not to mention many, many years without any support or partnership from the City of Oceanside.
 
We look forward to your support and seeing you all at the April 19th City Council meeting.
