The risk of fire increases as temperatures rise and vegetation dries out.

With more hot, dry weather still to come, Escondido fire officials ask you to look for potential fire hazards on or around your property. Here are some items to check for:

  • Clear any combustible material, weeds, brush, trees or other vegetation (including mulch) that is, or could become, dry and catch on fire
  • Maintain plantings within one hundred feet of a structure. Doing so can slow down or redirect the movement of a fire, and it will also allow firefighters the space they need to defend your property.
  • Ensure that properties of more than one acre have one hundred feet clearance from structures and fifty feet clearance around the perimeter.
  • Store firewood a minimum of thirty feet from structures and separated from the crown of trees by a minimum of fifteen feet.

Downtown Median Beautification Partnership:
Escondido’s Downtown Business Association has received a community enhancement grant from the County to fund additional landscaping in the Grand Avenue medians. They will be working in partnership with our Public Works Department and maintenance contractor to purchase, install, and maintain landscaping to enhance the beauty of our Downtown. 

Traffic Signal Coordination Project:
The traffic signals along Valley Parkway between Juniper and Centre City Parkway were recently coordinated to improve the flow of traffic and reduce travel times. New signal timing plans were implemented and has reduced travel times by 12%-28%. This results in an average time savings of 75-hours per day for Escondido commuters. 

Art Center Improvements:
Several years ago the City Council allocated $300K for various maintenance and repairs for the Conference Center at the California Center for the Arts, and only a portion were used for capital improvements. Since funds are available from the previous allocation, and repairs are needed to bring the event space back to its original condition, the City will move forward with repairing the walls of the Conference Center. 

Neighborhood Leadership Training:
The City is offering a free Neighborhood Leadership Training course to Escondido residents. Classes will be held on Mondays, from September 1, 2017 through October 30, 2017 from 6 - 8 p.m. The Neighborhood Leadership Training program offers opportunities for participants to build and strengthen leadership skills, provides networking and skill which can assist in building stronger communities.
