Coming Together – Making A Difference
Numerous national surveys have found that fewer and fewer people know the basics of government. Meaningful civic engagement has been replaced with narrow, partisan debates.
Engage Encinitas helps participants learn more about their County and City government. The activities & events we create include presentations, “behind the scenes tours” and other activities helping YOU become a better informed citizen.
Engage Encinitas and the Leucadia Town Council will host two “For & Against forums on Measure U”
Encinitas Housing Plan Update.
The first event will be held on Thursday, Sept. 13, 6:00p – 7:30p and the second will be on Sunday, September 16, 3:00p – 4:30p. Both will be at the Encinitas Library Community Room. The forums will be moderated by the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego.
A brief power-point presentation about the ballot measure (10-15 mins). What it is/Why it’s on the ballot presented by representative from Engage Encinitas and/or Leucadia Town Council.
Each speaker will be given 10-15 minutes to state their position. They can include a powerpoint presentation within that time frame if they wish. The remaining time will be for audience questions – submitted on comment cards and handled by representatives of the League of Women Voters of North San Diego County. Panelist to be announced at a later date.
To enrich the lives of residents across all of Encinitas, encourage collaboration and strengthen civic engagement. We aim to build a culture of participation and get to know more of our neighbors in the process.
