It is finally time to respond, and bring the facts to light! In the past as District Administrator, Wallace Group has had to endure wrongful allegations without the ability to defend ourselves due to District-imposed legal constraints. As Wallace Group is no longer the District Administrator, we can finally respond to allegations with the facts. John Wallace will be presenting at tonight’s South San Luis Obispo County Sanitation District (SSLOCSD) Board of Director's meeting to refute the grossly flawed and unfair allegations contained in the recently released Knudson Report of Past Management Practices. Though accusatory Mr. Knudson admits there was no fraud and that he didn’t ask Wallace Group about the allegations before printing the report. In fact, while the report cost over $90,000 he spent less than 1% of his time speaking to anyone at Wallace Group. We are anxious to set the record straight and thankful for all the support we’ve received! Those of you who know us, and the good work we do, know that we are committed to the long-term health and viability of the communities we serve and live in. Thank you for your continued support and trust!

Saturday, October 10 the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport broke ground on the new terminal. Dignitaries, airport officials and the companies involved in the design and construction of the new facility were on hand to grab a shovel and dig in. Wallace Group has been involved with the new terminal including our Survey team, Water Resources department and Landscape Architecture group. Bianca Koenig was willing to don a hardhat and safety vest for the ceremony. The airport will feature a courtyard unlike any other. After passing through security, travelers will experience an outdoor waiting area whose theme is “Beach to Vineyard” which is a celebration of the Central Coast lifestyle. No other airport has this secure outdoor option to await departure.

"Like a true American, my boy didn’t decide to try coming out until the start of the work day Monday morning. My wife labored all day and we finally got him freed from his confines just before midnight, for a 9-21-2015 birthday. We named him Isaac Raymond Parker. Named after the Biblical character Isaac, whose name means “laughter.” In the event he becomes a scientists later in life we will change our story to say we named him after Sir Isaac Newton. His middle name Raymond is after my wife’s maiden name and Parker is after Spiderman, of course. Ironically, our close friends up in San Jose delivered their first, a boy, same day. Not planned at all… well, to my knowledge. Anyways, Isaac came out very healthy, passed all of his tests, and got licensed as a certified new born in the state of California. He is a super happy kid, who gets hiccups all the time, occasionally barks like a dog, and hates having socks on his feet. We’re looking into Crocs in the meantime…" ~Matthew Parker, Landscape Designer, Dad

There’s no place like home and there is no better organization for getting homes built than the Home Builder’s Association. On September 9, members gathered for their monthly breakfast meeting and were treated to a variety of guest speakers.  Wallace Group’s CEO Brad Brechwald started the program with a brief history of our company and the many great projects we have been fortunate enough to be part of. Brad is passionate about creating housing and listed off the many communities Wallace Group has helped create like Blacklake, Monarch Dunes, and Cyprus Ridge.  “For the past 31 years we have had the pleasure of working in this community and we take great pride in our association with the Home Builder’s Association,” said Brechwald.

Jill McPeek from the Wallace Group reports on new developments in transportation funding she learned at the APWA International Conference. At the APWA International Conference one of the more informative sessions was on the proposed mileage based user fee or “pay by the mile” transportation funding to replace the current gas tax. The tax has not been increased in 20 years and struggles to keep pace with construction costs, and also as cars have become more fuel efficient. (Think about it, electric vehicles pay no gas tax but still use the roads.) Drivers would pay for the miles they drive, creating a fair and sustainable way to fund road maintenance, preservation and improvements for all roadway users. New technologies that are in cars now and forthcoming would allow for this program, but it will be a few years before it could be implemented. Oregon has already started a pilot/test program.
