Escondido Neighbors United is happy to support the following actions by our new Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer,
Check out these MAJOR POSITIVE actions that are being proposed for the County.
In honor of Earth Day, we are doing
more than celebrating our planet, in partnership with Supervisor Fletcher and
Supervisor Vargas respectively, I’m bringing forward three policies that will
bring major changes to how the county operates:
- ALL County departments will create and implement
Sustainability Plans, to advance sustainability in all aspects of
how we work
- Explore how to restructure the County from top to
bottom to center sustainability in all our operations
- Launch a Native Plants Landscaping Policy, the first of
its kind in the country, to safeguard our precious local
These would be major shifts in how the County operates so we
need a big grassroots push to try to rally the votes to get these policies
passed. We need your help to get these policies across the finish line.
For the ENU Felicita Park gardening team, item 7 is a match made in heaven. This will put us on an even stronger track to increase supply and use of native plants in our beloved park.
These actions to increase
sustainability, equity, environmental justice, habitat protection and native
plant landscaping will be heard by the Supervisors on May 5th where the Board
will consider moving forward with these actions.
PLEASE help us make this a
reality. Please be sure you read these the staff reports and file a Board
comment of support for the May 5th meeting.
Agenda item 6, 7, and 8 – Here is where to make your comments.
