Stay Informed: City of San Marcos General Plan Update

Dear San Elijo Hills Residents and Businesses:

My name is Eric Flodine, and I am honored to serve on the City of San Marcos’ General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC).  In this volunteer position over the next 2 years, I will strive to keep the residents of San Elijo Hills informed as to the current activities taking place with the very important update of the City’s General Plan.  A City’s General Plan (GP) acts as a “blueprint”, “roadmap” or “guide book” for the next 15 – 20 years.  A GP covers topics from types and locations of residential, commercial and office development; transportation; education; open space/recreation; safety; and the environment.  Those of you who wish to stay informed on a regular basis may sign up on the following City-sponsored website: www.ourcityourfuture..org

For the GP Update Process, the City has identified 8 distinct “neighborhoods” within the entire City boundary.  San Elijo Hills and Old Creek Ranch are within 1 of these GP neighborhoods.  I would like to offer up a challenge to the SEH community.  It would be great if we could show the City officials how dedicated we in the SEH and OCR areas are by having the highest percentage of residents, or local businesses, log in to the City’s website.  Please consider taking less than 5 minutes today and visiting the website and signing up to the “Join the Discussion” section.  I just completed this myself; very easy.

Remember that the General Plan is the foundation for the next 15 – 20 years of growth and stability in our great City of San Marcos.  If any questions, please contact the City, or you may also contact me at flodine1234@sbcglobal.net Also representing the SEH / OCR neighborhood is Lori Drake.

I am looking forward to meeting many of you at upcoming public workshops.  If you have any questions before these occur (see website for timeline), don’t hesitate to contact me via email.

All the best,

Eric Flodine
