Its area of responsibility includes the southern part of Scripps Miramar Ranch and all of Rancho Encantada / Stonebridge Estates.  Members of the Planning Group are volunteers elected to two-year terms by the community.

Community planning groups are 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 in each recognized 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. Elements of the General and Community Plans include:

Land Use and Community Planning, Mobility, Urban Design, Economic Prosperity,

Public Facilities, Services and Safety, Recreation, Conservation, Historic Preservation, Noise, Housing.
