Iinput gathered at these workshops will be used to develop San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan. The SANDAG Board is expected to adopt the plan in 2015.

A workshop in East County will be held on  June 27 from 6-8 p.m. in the  La Mesa Community Center, Arbor View Room, 4975 Memorial Drive, La Mesa.  For a full list of workshops, scroll down.

Evening workshops will be held every Thursday in June from 6-8 p.m. at different locations countywide. These workshops seek input on the broad range of topics listed above and more.

Two more daytime workshops will be held on the third Fridays in June and July from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Caltrans District 11, Garcia Room & Gallegos Room, 4050 Taylor Street, San Diego. Each workshop will focus on specific topics. The first daytime workshop took place on May 17, with approximately 150 participants taking part in focused discussions on healthy environment, energy, climate change, and public health.

Complimentary meals will be served at all the workshops. A printable version of the workshop flyer in English and Spanish is available at: http://www.sandag.org/uploads/projectid/projectid_428_15909.pdf
