Scripps Ranch Planning Group (SRPG)

The Scripps Ranch Planning Group (SRPG) did not meet in June. Please join us for our next meeting on Thursday, July 6, at 7 pm at the Scripps Ranch Library.

We will have an update on the SDG&E electrical transmission line construction. We also plan to have presentations on the proposed Renzulli development and the Carroll Canyon mixed-use project.

Capital Improvement Program

The city is soliciting planning group input on needed capital improvement projects. We have been collecting input, and at our July meeting we will vote on what recommendations to make to the city. Our current list includes the following:

  • New Fire Station 37 annex to provide increased coverage and reduced response times in Scripps Ranch and StoneBridge Estates
  • Expand parking at the library and Miramar Lake
  • Use reclaimed water for irrigation east along Pomerado Road
  • A pedestrian bridge and street reconstruction on Scripps Ranch Court
  • Neighborhood park improvements and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance at Jerabek, Cypress Canyon, and other parks
  • Medians along specific sections of Stonebridge Parkway and a second access to Stonebridge Park to move the entrance west

Next Meetings

The SRPG usually does not meet in July due to the holiday, but we plan to meet on July 6, as mentioned above. Our meetings are open to the public and we encourage participation. For more information, visit www.scrippsranch.org/SRPG.

For your planning purposes, the August meeting is on Thursday, Aug. 3, at 7 pm at the Scripps Ranch Library. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at [email protected]

Miramar Ranch North Planning Committee (MRNPC)

We are dark in July. The next MRNPC meeting is on Tuesday, Aug. 1, at 7 pm at the SRCA Community Center at 11885 Cypress Canyon Road. The next MRNPC’s Maintenance Assessment District (MAD) subcommittee meeting is on Aug. 1 at 6 pm prior to the MRNPC meeting.

Capital Improvement Program

At our April and May meetings we discussed a wish list of capital improvement program projects. The top three priorities that we request from the city for five-year outlook funding consideration are:

  1. Resurfacing Scripps Poway Parkway from Interstate 15 to the Poway boundary
  2. Butterfly Park lighting and a gazebo upgrade at the SRCA Community Center
  3. A raised median with landscape and decorative hardscape on Spring Canyon Road

Project Updates

Meantime, we still are waiting for responses to the environmental impact report comments on the San Diego Unified School District’s Scripps Mesa Joint Occupancy project. That’s the four-story apartment building planned for the current Innovations Academy site.

The Watermark project on Scripps Poway Parkway near I-15 is undergoing substantial conformance review and has applied for a neighborhood use permit for signage approval. Some changes are being made to accommodate future lessees.

The SDG&E’s Sycamore-Peñasquitos 239kV transmission line construction has begun, so expect delays along Pomerado Road and surrounding major alternate routes, such as Spring Canyon Road and Scripps Poway Parkway.
