IMPORTANT OAK CREEK MEETING: Attend Escondido Planning Commission Meeting TUESDAY, Jan 27th, 7 pm

We hope everyone had a meaningful Dr. King Day!
Now it is time to get back to the meaningful and important work of protecting our community.
The Escondido Planning Commission will consider the Oak Creek Housing Development Proposal on:
Tuesday, Jan 27th at 7pm in the Escondido City Council Chambers
201 N. Broadway, Escondido

The staff report is not released yet, but we expect the Planning Commissioners to make recommendations on two things:

1.   The first will be to consider certification of the FEIR as complete and accurate.  The FEIR is not sufficient and we oppose certification.
2.   The second decision will be to consider the Oak Creek Alternative 4 (worse than the original proposal)  to put 65 houses on 22.44 acres of existing open space as the development plan and forward that recommendation to the City Council for decision on March 4th.  We oppose this project.

The Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) has been released.  You can review it here Link to Oak Creek FEIR.
If you filed a letter or attended the DEIR hearing, you will want to read the point-by-point responses to your comments. Go to the link and scroll down, the responses index is around page 30 and then you need to scroll until you find your comments.  There are also good comment letters from the County of San Diego, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Local Tribal Bands, Regional Water Quality Board, and LAFCO.   We have not had time to review all of them, but many of the most significant problems have not been addressed and responses to many of the comments, while appearing long, are non-responsive. We will be posting more information soon.

Please review the responses on the issues you care about and file a letter and attend the Commission meeting about your concerns.

Chairman Jeffery Weber and Planning Commissioners

City of Escondido
