With each conversation we get one step closer to a shared vision of our canyons.
This morning we held a meeting at Groundwork offices with the City of San Diego, Urban Corps, Rosemont Neighborhood Council and lifelong trail-users. What brought us together was the future of the canyons in North Encanto. Of the many parties present some use the trails, some will build them, some patrol them and others plan them. What’s important is that we share our vision with one another for the canyons and the trails they hold. We shared excitement for stewardship opportunities to clear our canyons of trash and learned about official processes to get code enforcement involved to stem the barrage of garbage. We shared our favorite sights of Red-tailed hawks and woody mushrooms, and expressed our concern for their neglect and abuse. We proposed plans for corridors, construction and city engagement and most of all, we got to know each other. Because a healthy neighborhood with familiar neighbors is key to a healthy canyon.
