Business Improvement Committee 
Committee Chair, Holly Yarris 
Committee Co-chair, Alan Arthur 
The Business Improvement Committee is responsible for exploring innovative ideas to improve the Casa de Oro Business District. The Committee is currently conducting a business survey to gauge business owners’ perceptions around safety-related issues along Campo Road. These survey results will be used to implement informed strategies to promote public safety and revitalization efforts. The overall goal of this Committee is to create a thriving environment for businesses, visitors and community residents of Casa de Oro. Accordingly, one of the concepts this group is exploring is the development of a Business Improvement District (BID). The Business Improvement Committee meets the second Tuesday of every month at 5:30pm at rotating businesses along Campo Road in Casa de Oro. For more information, please email us at 

 Policy Development Committee
Committee Chair, Lisa Stewart  
Committee Co-chair, Michael Heron 
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, bars, massage parlors, hookah lounges, tattoo parlors and others. Recent data show that there is an excess concentration of these types of businesses in Casa de Oro and that they often do not comply with local and state laws and regulations. The Policy Development Committee meets the first Thursday of every month at 6:00pm. For meeting location please email us at

 Media & Outreach Committee
Committee Chair, Jay Steiger
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.
