Peter House, a former economist and expert in policy analysis relocated from Washington D. C. to Solana Beach five years ago with his wife, Carol Childs. House is currently President of the 101 Merchants Association, a board member of both the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce and the North Coast Repertory Theatre, co-founder of the Solana Beach Community Foundation, and a member of both the Del-Sol Lions, and the Solana Beach Civic Historical Society, where his wife serves as president.
In addition, House was one of a group of local business leaders that initiated “Shop Solana First” as a way to promote Solana Beach business, and is currently working closely with the City to help redevelop South Highway 101 into a pedestrian friendly downtown area.
House was instrumental in the changes to the Fletcher Cove Plaza. Peter and Carol were very active in the renovation of the Fletcher Cove Community Center and were a major benefactors to that project.
