On Wednesday, July 20, 2011 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. the City of Escondido will host a community meeting to receive public feedback regarding the development of a master plan for the Escondido Creek Trail.  The meeting will take place in the Mitchell Room at Escondido City Hall located at 201 North Broadway.

 The City of Escondido received a Healthy Communities Planning Grant to develop a master plan for the Escondido Creek Trail from SANDAG (San Diego Association of Governments) as part of Healthy WorksSM, a countywide initiative making systems and environmental changes promoting wellness and addressing the nationwide obesity epidemic.  Healthy WorksSM, administered by the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, is funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the County of San Diego.

The goal of the master plan is to revitalize the trail so it becomes a safe, attractive destination, fostering healthy lifestyles by providing opportunities for physical fitness activities, commuting alternatives and increased access to healthy food.

The master plan will focus on a segment of trail approximately six miles long from the Escondido Transit Center to the Daley Ranch conservation area and could include amenities such as new trail connections and pedestrian bridges, safer street crossings, better signage, community gardens, and improved landscaping.  The plan will build on the goals set forth in the “Revealing Escondido Creek” vision plan completed in April 2011. The vision plan is available at the Escondido Public Library and online at:

All community members are invited to participate in this important brainstorming session.  For more information contact Dan Hippert, Program Administrator at (760) 839-6328 or dhippert@escondido.org .
