The Mira Mesa Community Planning Group (MMCPG) holds elections every two years, electing half the members each time for four-year terms. If you want to vote for the Planning Group members, or run for a position on the Planning Group, the first step is to attend a meeting and register with the Secretary as an “eligible member of the community.” To be eligible you need to be a resident, property owner or business owner (or representative) within the Mira Mesa Community. You must sign up by the February 18th meeting to be eligible to vote. To run for a position on the Planning Group, you also need to have attended two meetings between September 2019 and January 2021. If you are interested in being on the Planning Group, even if you are not eligible to run now, please go ahead and register. Openings occur often and are then filled by people who have registered and been attending meetings. If you are eligible and interested in running for a position on the Planning Group, please email Planning Group chair Jeff Stevens at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details, see the Planning Group bylaws.
The Mira Mesa Community Planning Group is one of our most important community groups, providing the opportunity for local residents and businesses to have input into the future development of our community. The MMCPG has the responsibility to write (with the aid of the City) the Mira Mesa Community Plan, recommend changes to the Community Plan, and evaluate projects as they are proposed for consistency with the Community Plan. The Planning Group has 11 residential, 5 business and 3 property owner members. We are currently performing the first major update to the Community Plan since 1992.
