The Lompoc Vision
“Good News You Can Use.”
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!

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-
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.”
