Notice of Availability:

For the Escondido Country Club – the Villages Project proposal, an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared to identify the existing activities and uses at the project site and evaluate how future conditions might change if the proposed project is built. The City of Escondido announces the availability of this report to agencies, organizations, and members of the public to review the document.

The public comment period begins with the publication of the Notice of Availability, issued on June 28, 2017, and as extended as set forth by a Notice of Extended Public Comment Period, with a public review and comment period ending on August 18, 2017.   

At the close of the 52-day review and comment period, the City will respond to the comments received and make changes to the EIR based on those comments. This process will result in a public hearing, followed by a written decision by the decision-making body. Typically, a project may be approved, denied, or approved subject to specified conditions.
