Mira Mesa Community Plan Update

The City of San Diego is updating the Mira Mesa Community Plan, which was adopted in 1992. The updated Community Plan will take into account current conditions, Citywide goals in the Climate Action Plan and the General Plan, and community specific goals to provide direction for the long-term development of the community. The Mira Mesa Community Plan Update will be a collaborative process with ongoing opportunities for public input. During the update process, Planning Department staff will work with the Mira Mesa community and the public to identify and consider important questions, issues, and opportunities including:

  • How will Mira Mesa grow over the next 20-30 years?
  • How can the community best plan for residential and employment growth?
  • What services, infrastructure or facilities are needed to meet this growth?
  • How can we build on the positive economic effect of Mira Mesa?
