A free community meeting focusing on the future of the former Pacific View school site will be held at 6:00 p.m. tonight, Thursday, November 19, in the Encinitas Library Community Room, 540 Cornish Drive.

Sponsored by the recently formed Engage Encinitas group, the event will give residents a chance to interact with members of the Encinitas Arts, Culture and Ecology Alliance [EACEA], a consortium of several prominent local arts, culture and agriculturally oriented people and organizations. EACEA was chosen by the Encinitas City Council to submit a detailed proposal in its bid to develop and administer an arts and ecology center at a restored Pacific View.

EACEA was represented at the September 23 council meeting by ecologist and building restorer Garth Murphy and local businessman and event director Jon Humphrey. Its stated purpose is “to create a rich and dynamic visual, cultural and intellectual arts and ecology learning experience.”

Engage Encinitas’ public invitation invites people to “learn more about Encinitas Arts, Culture and Ecology Alliance’s proposal for the historic school site. Meet members of the Alliance and view their conceptual drawings. Share your ideas. They want to hear from artists of all genres, Pacific View alumni and anyone curious about the project.”

Former Encinitas Mayor Teresa Barth, an Engage Encinitas founder, sees the informal gathering as “a fun chance to mix and mingle, and look at [EACEA]’s site plan. I applaud their coming together as they have, and presenting a very clear vision.”

The “Pacific View School – What’s Next?” meeting agenda:

6:00 – 6:45 p.m. – Meet the members of the Alliance
6:45 – 7:00 p.m. – Presentation
​7:00 – 7:30 p.m. – Q & A​
