MAJOR ATTRACTION n GROWTH OF LEGOLAND A BOON THE REGION W ith summer in full swing, families everywhere are venturing off to destinations near and far to enjoy a little fun in the sun and some rest and relaxation. Thousands of them will travel to the city of Carlsbad to spend their time at Legoland California Resort, a major contrib- utor to the North County tourism industry and the topic of this issue's cover story. As families are celebrating their summer va- cations, we thought it would be a fitting time to focus on the growth of Legoland since its opening in 1999, to look at some of the excit- ing plans that lie ahead, and how the amuse- ment park continues to impact the local economy. Another favorite pastime for families during the sum- mer is going to the movies, and with the help of the recently es- tablished San Diego Regional Film Commission, North County could soon become a hub for the industry. The commission was established six months ago with the goal of bringing billions of dollars worth of film production jobs to North County. You can more about the commission in this edition of the Journal. Finally, I'd like to take a moment to recognize the new board members who have joined the North County Economic Devel- opment Corporation. – Mike Cully, Chief Professional Officer TRUSTEES AND OFFICERS OFFICERS Chief Professional Officer Mike Cully President Mark Kalpakgian, The Classical Academies Treasurer Paul Malone, EvCon Associates TRUSTEES Jennifer Dossett, Oceanside Glasstile Rick Gittings, Hilltop Group, Inc.
