2019 Mission Trails Regional Park Master Development Plan Update

The San Diego City Council approved the Mission Trails Regional Park (MTRP) Master Plan Update, the MTRP Natural Resource Management Plan, and the MTRP Final Program Environmental Impact Report on May 21, 2019. The MTRP Citizens’ Advisory Committee, working with City and County staff, is in the process of identifying priority projects to be started in the next few years. Projects identified by the MTRP Citizens’ Advisory Committee will be submitted to the MTRP Task Force for approval.

The following criteria, approved by the MTRP Task Force, is being used for establishing implementation priorities.

  • Public safety
  • Public accessibility
  • Operational efficiency
  • Extent of public use
  • Environmental preservation/resource protection
  • Geographic diversity within MTRP
  • Project gap filer
  • Funding leverage potential
  • Cultural/archaeological considerations
  • Geology

The plan includes 173 recommendations for the six areas identified in the Plan – Lake Murray, Cowles Mountain, Mission Gorge, Fortuna, West Sycamore, and future East Elliott. It will take many years and a lot of resources to address all of the recommendations.
