La Jolla Community Planning Association seeks candidates for July 3 special election

From LJCPA reports

The La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA) will hold a special election on Thursday, July 3 to fill two vacancies.

The LJCPA is La Jolla’s community organization recognized by the City of San Diego to make recommendations on local land use and infrastructure matters. Its current board is comprised of residents from nearly every La Jolla neighborhood.

LJCPA board members serve La Jolla by having their voice heard in local planning affairs; reviewing private development and city projects for conformance to La Jolla’s community plan; and collaborating to achieve the best outcome for residents, merchants, property owners and applicants.

Anyone interested in being a candidate should send an email to no later than the LJCPA’s next regular meeting on Thursday, June 5, or they may attend the meeting to announce their intention to run.

Because there is a significant time commitment, the LJCPA only accepts self-nominations. As candidates self-nominate they will be listed at

Candidates must be a member of the LJCPA in good standing and have attended at least three LJCPA meetings during the 12 months prior to the July 3 election (July 2013 to June 2014). Attendance and membership can be verified at

Upon election, new board members will participate in monthly meetings held the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. The city offers a brief training on land development law and processes. Meetings are always open to the public and are guided by the LJCPA’s bylaws, city policies and the Brown Act to ensure that meetings and deliberations are inclusive and transparent. The LJCPA’s work is supplemented by a robust subcommittee structure that includes: the Planned District Ordinance, Development Permit Review, and La Jolla Shores Permit Review committees; the Traffic and Transportation Board and the Coastal Access and Parking Board, as well as various ad hoc committees.

Candidate Forum

A candidate forum will be held during the LJCPA meeting on June 5, 6 p.m. at the La Jolla Recreation Center, 615 Prospect St. Candidates will be given two minutes to present their background and their interest in becoming a trustee.
