Mira Mesa Community Plan: The Mira Mesa Community Plan and the Mira Mesa Facilities Benefit Assessment (FBA) are online at the City of San Diego web site. Public Facilities in Mira Mesa are paid for through the FBA. FBA fees are paid by developers at the time building permits are pulled. Fees vary depending on the type of development. The San Diego City General Plan adopted by the City Council on March 10, 2008 is also online. This is a very important document as it guides all future development in the City and require updates to all community plans.
Regulations: 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.

Sycamore Penasquitos Transmission Line: SDG&E is proposing to build a 230 Kilovolt transmission line from Sycamore Canyon to Penasquitos. Details are here. The original proposal was to build the line north of Mira Mesa through Rancho Penasquitos and Del Mar Mesa. SDG&E held a number of public hearings along that route and received objections to it. The “environmentally preferred route” now runs through Mira Mesa along Miramar Road and through the Miramar business area. However, they have held no hearings in this area and the businesses on Miramar Road are concerned about the impact the construction may have on them.
