SPVPA and 40+ community, climate, labor, environmental justice, and conservation organizations joined forces to submit a letter to the City Council of Escondido detailing continued issues tied to the Harvest Hills proposal.
Following the release of the Safari Highlands Ranch, now renamed Harvest Hills, DEIR in 2017, numerous significant issues were raised by state and local agencies, organizations and members of the community. Nearly 1,200 days have passed with no final EIR but a new LAFCO policy on preservation of open space, and relevant litigation pertaining to building new housing developments in Very High Fire Risk areas, among other items, highlights the need for the Escondido City Council to proceed judiciously.
The group strongly urges four actions prior to advancing the CEQA review and rendering a decision on the project.
