In 1977, as the result of a joint meeting of the City Council and County Board of Supervisors which was held to discuss the park's draft master plan, the Mission Trails Regional Park Task Force was created to facilitate inter-agency cooperation and cooperation in the implementation of the park's master development plan.
The Task Force, which now consists of elected officials and the chair of the Citizens' Advisory Committee, does not exercise any legislative or fiscal power, but is advisory to both the City Council and the County Board of Supervisors. The Task Force's purpose as set forth in the Council Resolution which established it, "is to advise the various public bodies on matters relating to the development of the regional park."
Task Force members include Councilmembers Raul Campillo (Chair) and Kent Lee representing the City of San Diego; Supervisors Joel Anderson and Nathan Fletcher representing the County of San Diego; Councilmember Colin Parent (Vice Chair) representing the City of La Mesa; Councilmember Dustin Trotter representing the City of Santee; and Dorothy Leonard, MTRP Citizens' Advisory Committee Chair.
The Task Force normally meets the third Thursday of even numbered months (January, March, May, July, September, November) at 10:00 AM at the Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor Center. All meetings are open to the public. Meeting dates are published on the CAC/Task Force page on this web site.
