The Scripps Ranch Planning Group is one of 42 Community Planning Groups in the City of San Diego. Its area of responsibility includes the southern part of Scripps Ranch and all of Rancho Encantada / Stonebridge Estates. The Miramar Ranch North Planning Committee is another separate planning group responsible for the northern part of Scripps Ranch. Both groups are separate and independent from the SRCA, but all work closely together.
Community planning groups are quasi-governmental. They are formed and recognized by the City Council to make recommendations to the Mayor, City Council, Planning Commission, City staff and other governmental agencies on matters specifically concerning the preparation of, adoption of, implementation of, or amendment to, the General Plan or a land use plan when a plan relates to each recognized community planning group’s planning area boundaries. The City Council recognizes one official planning group in each community. Groups work with City staff to formulate and implement the General Plan and community plans, and to advise the Planning Commission and City Council on projects.
Each Planning Group, by direction of the City Attorney and City Council, operates in accordance with California’s Open Meeting Law, the Ralph M. Brown Act. The purpose of the act is to ensure the actions and deliberations of public bodies occur openly with public access and input.

Members of the Planning Group are volunteers elected to two-year terms by the community. Elections are held in March each year.
