Escondido Residents Launch Friend of Eagle Crest
Rancho San Pasqual neighbors Carl Skaja and Suz and Scot McDowell launched the Friends of Eagle Crest today. The Friends of Eagle Crest is a volunteer group of Escondido neighbors working together to support approval of the proposed Safari Highlands Ranch community.
“Our group recognizes the positive public safety, education and open space benefits that Safari Highlands Ranch will provide for the Eagle Crest neighborhoods and entire Escondido community. We are supporting Safari Highlands Ranch to help realize these benefits for our community,” said Carl Skaja, co-chair of the Friends of Eagle Crest.
“We want to show the City of Escondido that a large number of local residents support Safari Highlands Ranch and encourage their approval of this project,” said Suz McDowell, co-chair of the Friends of Eagle Crest.
The Friends of Eagle Crest support Safari Highlands Ranch because it:
- Improves the Eagle Crest Golf Club, helping renew the centerpiece of our community
- Supports San Pasqual Union School and other local schools
- Creates a new fire station and emergency road to help improve safety for our neighborhoods
- Benefits home values with a thriving golf course and nearby estate homes
- Preserves 700 acres of open space, including public trails
Escondido neighbors are invited to join The Friends of Eagle Crest as a member by signing up on our website or reaching out to Carl Skaja or Scot and Suz McDowell. The co-chairs can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
