The Association of Planning Groups - San Diego County commends SANDAG for their historic vote today to add an Advisory Board Member to represent the residents of the unincorporated areas of San Diego County.
This vote by SANDAG recognizes the contributions and importance of the unincorporated area residents to the San Diego Region and demonstrates SANDAG’s commitment to their inclusion and equity mission statement.
The population of the unincorporated areas is second only to the City of San Diego. The more than 513,000 residents of the unincorporated area will now be included in the planning and funding of policies and projects that directly impact their communities and are developed through our regional government association - SANDAG.
The SANDAG Advisory Board Member will be elected from the membership of the newly formed Association of Planning Groups - San Diego County. This Association comprises all 18 County of San Diego Community Planning Groups and was formed for the purpose of greater representation of the unincorporated residents to SANDAG.
We look forward to working with SANDAG.
