Policy Development Committee

Committee Chair, Lisa Stewart  
Committee Co-chair, Michael Herron
The Policy Development Committee is exploring the use of regulatory zoning tools and policies that give San Diego County land use authority to place new limits on the number of high-risk adult businesses in Casa de Oro and place conditions on pre-existing businesses to ensure they operate in a manner consistent with the character of the community. These high-risk adult businesses may include liquor stores, smoke shops, and bars.

Media & Outreach Committee
Committee Chair, Nicole Heffel
The Media and Outreach Committee works to generate print and broadcast news, recruit new members and retain existing members. They develop recruiting materials, maintain contact with members through a list-serve and speak at community events and meetings. They highlight change as it happens, build widespread community support for the goals of the Alliance, engage new partners, place pressure on problem businesses in Casa de Oro so they can clean up their act. The Media Team also provides training to Alliance members so they feel prepared when talking to reporters on camera, developing and pitching news stories, and writing letters to the editor or guest editorials.
