Mira Mesa Community Planning Group
The Mira Mesa Community Planning Group meets the third Monday of each month, except in January and February since those Mondays are holidays. Since the library is no longer available on Mondays, planning group meetings are being held at various locations, which will be listed on this page as they are scheduled. For information about upcoming meetings and general information about the Planning Group, contact chair John Horst at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next MMCPG meeting will be on Monday, March 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM.
The agenda is published at least 72 hours before each meeting. The publishing of the agenda is by email addressed to the City. The City then forwards it to all emails on a list it maintains. You can find information on getting onto that list here: http://www.sandiego.gov/planning/community/profiles/miramesa/agendas.shtml
MMCPG does not have a permanent location since the Mira Mesa Library is now
closed Mondays. Unless specified otherwise above, meetings are now being held at Vulcan Offices, 7220 Trade

All Planning Groups must comply with City Council Policy 600-24, and a set of community specific bylaws which comply with this policy. The Planning Department in collaboration with a CPC subcommittee, developed a set of administrative guidelines which are intended to clarify the council policy. The bylaws and administrative guidelines were both recently revised to bring them into compliance with the updated 600-24.
The San Diego City General Plan adopted by the City Council on March 10, 2008 is now available at http://www.sandiego.gov/planning/genplan/index.shtml. This is a very important document as it guides all future development in the City and require updates to all community plans.
The City Planning Department has recently placed online a set of existing conditions maps for Mira Mesa.
Stone Creek: A Planning Group subcommittee is reviewing a proposed new project named "Stone Creek," which is a future redevelopment plan for the 300 acre section of Carroll Canyon owned by Vulcan Materials Company. The site runs from about 1/2 mile west of Camino Ruiz to Black Mountain Road (see Aerial photograph showing location). The initial proposal was for 9800 multifamily residential units and 730,000 square feet of commercial and industrial space. A revised proposal containing 5481 multifamily residential units has been submitted to the City. See the October 23, 2006 subcommittee report, the May 14, 2007 subcommittee report, the July 9, 2007 subcommittee report, and the September 7, 2007 subcommittee report. Subcommittee meetings restarted in March 2011 and will restart when the traffic study is completed. On May 21, 2012 the subcommittee made these recommendations which were then approved by a vote of the full Planning Group.
The Mira Mesa Community Planning Group Hillery DAR Subcommittee has been reviewing the Direct Access Ramp (DAR) that is proposed to connect Mira Mesa streets to I-15.

The future of MCAS Miramar is a critical local land use issue. At the January 2006 meeting, the MMTC approved a resolution opposing joint use of Miramar as a civilian airport. Here is some information about the ballot initiative (defeated) compiled by Arlette Ballew. Here is some additional information on the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority Land Use Commission Study. SANDAG has published an Airport Economic Analysis Final Report describing options for airport relocation in San Diego County including discussion of relocating to MCAS Miramar. Nine sites around the region were still in the running to become San Diego County's new international airport, following an earlier screening of 32 locations, according to the recommendations contained in a 2002 48-page report prepared by the consulting firm of Landrum & Brown. However, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority has recommended only Miramar as a proposed location.
