Community advisory groups to begin meeting this fall

Escondido Director of Community Development this week sent out an advisory to members of the city’s City of Escondido’s community advisory groups (ECAG) that the groups will probably begin to meet again this fall.

In his letter to the group members, Strong said, “More information will come in the next month about meeting date, time, and format (likely still virtual).  I am hoping to have this full, ECAG group meeting in October.  The purpose of this meeting will be to touch base, document progress on work, reset the group’s agenda, and determine how to proceed with the big ideas.”

Some ECAG groups were working during the spring and summer, despite the pandemic.  

Some through subcommittees and some through virtual invitations to the whole membership.  

Strong wrote, “Most notably was the work on preparing recommendations on the draft Climate Action Plan (“CAP”.)  The City released the draft CAP for public comment and review in late June.  Several members of the ECAG will present their recommendations and suggested change to the draft CAP to the Planning Commission, virtually, on September 8, 2020.”

Strong concluded, “The goal is to systematically work through the various components of the draft CAP and present a version for the Planning Commission and City Council to approve in October/November.”
