Have you ever wondered how decisions are made in Mira Mesa regarding land use, transportation, and public facilities? Such decisions are governed by the Mira Mesa Community Plan, a document developed in partnership between the City of San Diego and the Mira Mesa Community Planning Group.
The current Mira Mesa Community Plan was approved on October 6, 1992, more than twenty years ago. And while there have been a few minor plan updates, the document is overdue for a complete review and update. The City of San Diego is the entity that must schedule the plan updates, and recent budget shortfalls added to the amount of time we have waited.
The Mira Mesa Community Planning Group is the city designated group that represents Mira Mesa and assists in the preparation of the new Community Plan. This plan may include updates to elements such as Land Use, Transportation, Urban Design, Public Facilities and Services, Natural and Cultural Resources, and Economic Development. Requirements for the future Stone Creek development at the Vulcan Materials site in Carroll Canyon are part of the Community Plan.
The Community Plan update process will kick off at the next meeting of the Mira Mesa Community Planning Group on Thursday, January 19, 2017, 7:00 p.m. at the Mira Mesa Library, 8405 New Salem Street. Mira Mesa Community Planning Groups are normally held on the 3rd Monday of the month, every month except July and December. In January and February, the meetings are moved to Thursday due to Federal holidays.
The Community Plan update process is your opportunity to weigh in on how you believe Mira Mesa should develop over the next 10 – 20 years. At the meeting, you can sign up to receive emails from the Mira Mesa Community Planning Group as well as copies of the agenda in advance of the meetings.
