Shortly after the Mission Trails Task Force was created, they in turn created the Citizens' Advisory Committee (CAC) as an advisory group to the Task Force to provide community input and a presumed consensus of the interested community groups. Subsequently, members of the Citizens' Advisory Committee identified the need for a fund-raising body to support the park and in 1988 three members of the CAC created the Mission Trails Regional Park Foundation.
The Citizens' Advisory Committee normally meets the first Tuesday of even numbered months (January, March, May, July, September, November) at 6:30 PM at the Mission Trails Regional park Visitor Center. When a local, state or nation election, or a major holiday, falls on the first Tuesday the meeting date is either moved forward or back one week. Meeting dates are published on the CAC/Task Force page on this web site. All meetings are open to the public.
