The Lompoc Vision

“Good News You Can Use.”

T

he Lompoc Community Track &

Sports Field Project is now in full

swing with R.L. Johnson Construc-

tion initiating the preparation work for the

installation of a nine-lane track and synthetic

turf field. Having R.L. Johnson Construction

lead the work on the track and field project

is the epitome of a community supporting

its own. Ronnie & Leigh Johnson, owners

of R.L. Johnson Construction, both attended

Lompoc Unified Schools.

As alumni of Lompoc, they spent ample

time in their youth at Huyck Stadium watch-

ing various sporting and community events.

LUSD is proud to partner with this local

business and to be able to keep the money

in Lompoc. Lompoc Unified Superintendent,

Trevor McDonald said “This is exactly what

we had envisioned, keeping the LUSD mon-

ies local and supporting our local businesses.

It makes us all extremely proud to be working with such a quality firm.”

Upon graduation from LUSD, Ronnie started working in construction. As a small business owner in Lompoc, he has

over a dozen employees, all of whom live in Lompoc. “Being a native of Lompoc, I am proud that we can continue to

support our local businesses. This project will be something that benefits the community in so many ways for many

years to come,” said Doug Sorum, Director of Maintenance and Operations. “Working on this project has allowed our

employees to work where they live.

Having such a short commute gives them more time with their families,” said Ronnie Johnson. “We are

a family-centered business, so maximizing our employees time with their families aligns with our company

values.” Johnson said that all of his employees have ties in some way to LUSD schools with most having

attended the schools themselves. “This isn’t the first time we have done work with LUSD. We continue to

be pleased with our working relationship and the success we have had,” said Johnson. R.L Johnson plans

on working on the Lompoc Track & Sports Field project through mid-February, depending on the weather.

KEEPING IT LOCAL!

he Lompoc Public Library

System’s Village Library will

be closed the week of Feb. 10

while new carpeting is installed.

The book drop outside the Village

Library will remain available for re-

turned materials during the Feb. 10 –

Feb. 14 closure.

Santa Barbara County’s community

services and general services depart-

ments are paying for the carpet instal-

lation. The City of Lompoc is under

contract with Santa Barbara County

to provide library services in Vanden-

berg Village.

The Village Library’s current carpet

was installed in 2002 during the Vil-

lage Library expansion, and has grown old and damaged, creating tripping hazards.

The Lompoc Library would like to thank Santa Barbara County 3rd District Supervisor Joan Hartmann for

her support of the project.

Said Hartmann, “The Vandenberg Village Library is a special and cherished place for the Village and sur-

rounding areas. The carpet replacement project demonstrates the county’s ongoing commitment to libraries.

This improvement will enhance the library experience for children, families, seniors and patrons. Investing

in our libraries is one of my core commitments as supervisor.”
