Committee Charter >


Planning and Major Committee purpose is to inform and empower the members of the Eastport Civic Association (ECA) to better understand and address the nature and impact of current and future major development in Eastport.  This Committee will communicate with the City's Planning and Zoning Department and other city agencies, citizens of Eastport, developers, relevant experts, advocacy groups and business owners regarding the scope, nature, and impact of major developments.  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 andpossible effects of current, proposed, and possible development on the adequacy of such infrastructure in the future.

On February 19, 2019, we sent a letter to the Mayor and members of City Councilnoting ECA’s objections to the formal adoption of the Forest Drive Sector Study .  As a result of this and other efforts, the Sector Study was remanded to the Planning Commission for further review.

ECA has been instrumental in the formation of a Citizens Coalition of Civic Organizations along the Forest Drive- Eastport corridor.  This coalition is now formed (see  coalition charter).  ​One of the first tasks of the Citizens Coalition, was to marshal support for a City Resolution forming a Citizen/Government multijurisdictional Task Force to review Traffic/Development issues along the Forest Drive corridor. (Coalition letter to elected officials).
