Mission Trails Master Plan Update – Draft EIR Scoping Meeting Thursday, April 17

Mission Trails Master Plan Update- Draft EIR Scoping Meeting
Thursday, April 17, 2014, 6:00 p.m. at the Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor and Interpretive Center.


The City of San Diego Planning, Neighborhoods & Economic Development Department, Park Planning Section, initiated a formal Master Plan Update (MPU) process for Mission Trail Regional Park (MTRP) in the winter of 2010. The MTRP MPU process included a series of public workshops, held in the spring of 2011, to engage local stakeholders and the interested public in the identification and refinement of future development options for MTRP.

As part of the MPU process, a Natural Resource Management Plan (NRMP) is also being prepared. The NRMP, a requirement of the Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP), is being developed concurrently with the MPU to ensure that protection and management concerns for both environmental and cultural resources have been fully assessed and integrated into the MPU.

A Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will also be written as a part of this effort to ensure California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) compliance for all proposed facilities and management activities planned as part of both the MPU and NRMP. Due to the programmatic nature of the EIR, supplemental detailed CEQA consistency analysis may be required for the future development and management activities.

The public drafts of the MTRP Master Plan Update (MPU) and Natural Resource Management Plan (NRMP) are complete and available for public review. LINK to view the documents.

The Notice of Preparation (NOP) for the Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) has been posted. This is the time for the public to comment on the adequacy of the draft PEIR.
Link to view the document.

If you have comments on the Draft MPU, please send them to Jeff Harkness at by May 2, 2014.
