City of Canyon Lake establishes four city council ad hoc committees

Ad hoc committees are an effective way to facilitate key discussions by allowing members of the council to actively participate in the research, study, and development of proposed recommendations and programs related to a specific purpose.

Last month, the Canyon Lake City Council established a Public Safety Ad Hoc Committee to explore and discuss public safety-related initiatives and opportunities within the city. Mayor Jeremy Smith and Councilman Mark Terry were appointed to this committee.

On Wednesday, the council establish four additional city council ad hoc committees and appointed two members of the council to serve on each committee.

Mayor Smith and Mayor Pro Tem Dale Welty were appointed to the Canyon Lake Property Owners Association (POA) Articulation Committee. The committee was established to work more closely with the POA on an as-needed basis.

Councilmembers Kasey Castillo and Jennifer Dain were appointed to the Lake Elsinore Unified School District (LEUSD) Articulation Committee. Last month, the LEUSD Board of Trustees appointed two Governing Board delegates to represent the district at LEUSD/City of Canyon Lake Articulation meetings. LEUSD currently has such committees for the cities of Lake Elsinore and Wildomar. This committee will be focused on meeting regularly to discuss school and city updates that impact the community or LEUSD.

Councilmembers Castillo and Dain were also appointed to the Community Engagement Committee. This committee will be responsible for assisting with projects and events to better connect with the community and communicate with residents. Common projects for this committee include community events, public information efforts, youth programs, and/or volunteer efforts. This committee will officially replace the city’s existing Veterans Day Committee, Scholarship Committee, Spirit of Canyon Lake Award Committee, and the 9/11 Event Committee.

Mayor Pro Tem Welty and Councilman Terry were appointed to the Economic Development Committee and will be tasked with assisting staff in identifying and formulating strategic initiatives to invest in growing Canyon Lake’s economy to enhance the prosperity and quality of life for all residents. This will include efforts related to the Towne Center, supporting local businesses, and/or creating jobs and opportunities for future growth in the city.
