The process to develop Kearny Mesa Connected will be collaborative and include a number of opportunities for public input. The City will meet on a regular basis with the Kearny Mesa Planning Group’s Community Plan Subcommittee, public workshops will be conducted, and opportunities to share your input online will be available at key milestones in the planning process. The result of this process will be a new draft Community Plan for Kearny Mesa. An Environmental Impact Report will also be prepared to assess the potential environmental impacts of implementing the plan, along with necessary mitigation measures.
