Mira Mesa is one of the largest and most populated communities in San Diego. Covering some 10,500 acres. It is home to more than 80,000 residents. Its businesses are supplying tens of thousands of jobs.
Because of the steady growth of the Mira Mesa community, the City Council adopted the Mira Mesa Development Plan in 1992. The Plan serves as the city’s blueprint for the community’s growth and development. It sets the policies and proposals for housing, sustainable development, open spaces and parks, historic preservation, public facilities, and many others.
To make the Plan responsive to the community’s current conditions, the council is inviting the public to take part in the Mira Mesa Development Plan Update, an initiative where community residents and stakeholders participate in collaborative efforts by providing their input. Staff members from the city’s Planning Department are working with the Mira Mesa community to identify critical issues, questions about these issues, and opportunities for improvement.
The types of information residents and stakeholders provide for the Community Plan Update (CPU) include the following:
1. The growth direction of Mira Mesa in the next two or three decades;
2. The best way to deal with the expected growth in population and the accompanying employment requirements over that period.
3. The facilities, infrastructure, and services needed to address this growth.
