This time of year is a special time of celebration, reflection, and looking forward. I want to take this opportunity to wish every Escondido resident a very happy holiday season, and a healthy and prosperous 2018.  

During this holiday season, let us be thankful for our diverse and thriving community.  Escondido is a great city with an excellent quality of life and strong sense of tradition. The progress we have made over the past few years has been exceptional and Escondido remains a safe, clean and efficient place to live, and to plan a future.

It is an honor and privilege for me to serve as your mayor and I look forward to continue the good work we have done with our residents, businesses and my colleagues on the City Council in the coming year.

Students Weigh In on Escondido’s Future
On November 30th and December 1st, City staff conducted a visioning exercise and art lesson with 5th graders at Central Elementary.  After a group discussion about planning and land use, the students envisioned and shared ideas on what they would like to see develop on some vacant lots around their school.  The activity helped students learn more about government and recognize connections between government and a student’s everyday life.  Over 100 students participated.  This activity was possible by the South Centre City Specific Plan planning effort.  The results of the art exercise will be incorporated into the final planning document, which will be presented to Planning Commission and City Council for approval in early 2018.  For more information about the Project or the art lesson, please refer to the project website at https://www.escondido.org/south-centre-city-area-plan.aspx
