La Jolla planning group looking for trustee candidates

The La Jolla Community Planning Association, recognized by the city of San Diego to make recommendations on local land-use matters, will hold its regular annual election on March 3 to fill seven of its 18 trustee seats. Trustees serve for three years.

Candidates must be a member of the association in good standing and must have attended at least three meetings during the 12 months prior to the election. Attendance can be verified at

Elected trustees participate in monthly meetings on the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. Upon election, trustees receive a brief training of land development law and processes. Meetings are open to the public and the group is guided by our bylaws, city policies, and the Brown Act to ensure that our process is inclusive and transparent, said Joe LaCava, the group’s president.

The planning group’s work is supplemented by a subcommittee structure that includes Planned District Ordinance, Development Permit Review, La Jolla Shores Permit Review, Traffic & Transportation, Coastal Access and Parking Board, as well as various ad hoc committees.

A candidate forum will be held during the Feb. 3 meeting, which begins at 6 p.m., La Jolla Recreation Center, 615 Prospect St. Candidates will be given two minutes to present their background and their interest in becoming a trustee.

Let a current trustee know of your interest or send an e-mail to by no later than the LJCPA’s next regular meeting on Feb. 3.

As candidates are nominated or self-nominate they will be posted at
