Community workshops tackle important regional issues
Throughout June and July, SANDAG will continue to hold community workshops countywide to solicit public input on the biggest issues facing the region between now and 2050 – issues like the economy, environment, transportation, public health, and social equity.
The input gathered at these workshops will be used to develop San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan. This new regional plan will build upon local planning efforts, and incorporate emerging issues and innovative concepts, to form an overall vision for the region’s future, including specific actions to turn that vision into reality. The SANDAG Board is expected to adopt the plan in 2015.
Evening workshops will be held every Thursday in June from 6-8 p.m. at different locations countywide. All these workshops will seek input on the same topics – land use, transportation, housing, healthy environment, public health, economic prosperity, public facilities, energy, climate change, and borders.
Two more daytime workshops will be held on the third Fridays in June and July from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Caltrans District 11, Garcia Room & Gallegos Room, 4050 Taylor Street, San Diego. Each workshop will focus on specific topics. The first daytime workshop took place on May 17, with approximately 150 participants taking part in focused discussions on healthy environment, energy, climate change, and public health.
Complimentary meals will be served at all the workshops. A printable version of the workshop flyer in English and Spanish is available at: http://www.sandag.org/uploads/projectid/projectid_428_15909.pdf.
