Environmental documents for Escondido’s updated General Plan, portions of which are on the November 6 election ballot for voter approval as Proposition N, won top honors in a regional competition conducted by the San Diego Chapter of the Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP).

An independent panel of judges evaluated the documents that assessed the General Plan’s environmental impacts, climate action planning, and traffic analysis and awarded Escondido first place in every category. Results of the competition were announced in San Diego on October 24, 2012:

  • Escondido’s Draft Climate Action Plan won “Outstanding Environmental Resource Document.”
  • Escondido’s General Plan Update Traffic Impact Analysis won “Outstanding Technical Report.”
  • Escondido’s General Plan Update, Downtown Specific Plan Update, Climate Action Plan EIR won “Outstanding Environmental Analysis.”

The documents were prepared by Atkins Consultants (the Traffic Analysis was conducted by Linscott Law and Greenspan as a sub-consultant to Atkins) under contract with the Planning Division and judged against very stiff competition. Other projects in the competition included San Diego’s Convention Center Phase III Expansion EIR, the Balboa Park Plaza Project EIR, Palomar College Campus Park Biological Technical Report, Sycuan Band Cultural Resource Management Plan, and more.
