North County Coastal Group 
Quarterly Meeting
January 28th

Encinitas Community Center
1140 Oakcrest Park Dr, Encinitas, CA 92024
7:00 – 8:30 PM

 Please Join us for our quarterly meeting

Guest Speakers:  Catherine Blakespeare.  Join us for a special presentation from Encinitas Mayor, Catherine Blakespeare who will review her environmental priorities for 2020 and answer some of your questions.

Special Presentation:  San Diego Needs “Smart Growth” to solve its housing crisis! Learn about important Ballot Measures and how we can use our Vote in March to prevent urban sprawl.

Years ago the County spent millions developing a Smart Growth plan that our officials ignore.  See what actually could happen if Measure A does not pass. Learn how we can support development that considers infrastructure issues, wildfire dangers, protection of our wildlife and open spaces and the impact of urban sprawl on our rural settings. Presentation and discussion will be led by George Courser, Sierra Club Conservation Chair.

Meeting is free of charge and open to the public!



What’s New From The Coasters

What Can You Do Now? Our Goal with this new group is to support the Sierra Club Mission to “Explore, Enjoy and Protect our Planet,” while addressing issues and providing outdoor opportunities that are important to our North County Coastal area.

Here are some immediate ways that you can get involved:

City Ambassador – We are looking for a few volunteers to become Information Ambassadors for their city – Ambassadors will help us stay up to date with important issues, developments and activities in each of the coastal cities.  This will help our group stay informed and ready to mobilize on hot button issues. Contact Mayela at mayelaphoto@gmail.com.

Conservation Group – Volunteers will help jump start a “Coasters Conservation Group.”  This group will work with the San Diego Chapter Conservation Group while bringing North County issues and priorities to the forefront. Contact Alice at aliceh.john@gmail.com.

Outings – Our San Diego Chapter offers a number of ways to enjoy our beautiful region from sponsored hikes to Basic Wilderness Training Courses.  Our Coasters group will be a galvanizing force for our area to tap into all that is currently available while exploring opportunities that are unique to our region. Contact Carl Pope at seatp3@gmail.com.

Social Media Guru – We are looking for volunteers to help us create and manage our website and FaceBook page.  Effective communication with our “Coasters Group” is the key to our success and critical during this politically charged time! Contact Sally at sallyp123@mac.com.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, would like more information and /or have some other ideas to help build our Group please contact Sally Prendergast @sallyp123@mac.com.
