Committees and Boards of the
La Jolla Community Planning Association
2015-2016 Appointments

In order to achieve diversity and equality of representation of the La Jolla community and to meet the objectives of Council Policy 600-24 regarding broad representation of the various geographic sections of the community and diversified community interests, Community Joint Committees and Boards have been formed to assist the LJCPA with detailed review of development applications.

Each parent/charter organizations has its own rules in making appointments. Contact them if you are interested in being appointed to a committee.

If you need an item or project placed on one of the committee agendas, please contact us, info@lajollacpa.org, as early as possible as agendas fill up quickly. This is especially important if you are trying to get approvals for a special event. Remember that recommendations of the committees are advisory to the LJCPA and need to be ratified by the LJCPA before being sent to the city.

    Planned District Ordinance Committee (PDO)

         The committee reviews development applications within the portions of La Jolla related to the La Jolla Planned District Ordinance (PDO). For projects requiring no other discretionary permits (for example, building signs, façade renovations) the recommendations are forwarded to the LJCPA for ratification before submitting to the City of San Diego. For projects requiring discretionary permits (coastal development permits, site development permits, etc.) the recommendations are forwarded to the Coastal Development Permit Committee for their consideration. The Committee’s review is limited to whether or not the application conforms to the PDO.
         The Committee is comprised of 11 members: 3 appointed by the LJCPA, 3 by the La Jolla Town Council Association, 3 by La Jolla Vilage Merchants Association, and 2 by Bird Rock Community Council. The Committee meets on the 2nd Monday of every month at 4:00 pm in Room 1 of the La Jolla Recreation Center. Meetings are always open to the public. The draft agenda is generally set one (1) week and no later than at least 72 hours prior to the meeting. If the agenda is empty, the meeting will be cancelled.
         Please contact the chair to reserve your place on the agenda as well as discuss what material the committee will need to review your application. We reserve time on the agenda for “information only” discussions which can be useful to applicants and designers not familiar with the Planned District Ordinance.
