Are you ready to have fun and make your community a better place? ECA members can volunteer in many ways, including joining an ECA committee. Please consider volunteering your time and talents.
This committee focuses on the nature and impact of current and future development in Eastport. This committee
communicates with the City Department of Planning and Zoning (P&Z) and other city agencies, citizens of Eastport,
developers, relevant experts, advocacy groups, and business owners regarding the scope, nature and impact of
major development projects. As part of its activities, the committee may review and comment on existing and future
infrastructure (e.g. roads, traffic, schools, open space) in Eastport and possible effects of current, proposed and
possible development on the adequacy of such infrastructure in the future.
