How to Join Your Community Planning Group

Join Circulate San Diego, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Building Industry Association’s y|GEN for a panel and discussion on how residents of the City of San Diego can serve on their local community planning groups.

Is your voice being represented in your CPG? Community Planning Group members help shape the future of their communities. Hear from CPG members about their experience and how you can get elected to your CPG! Circulate San Diego is encouraging a diverse group of committed San Diegans to participate in the City’s community planning groups.

Our panelists include:

  • Oscar Medina, Golden Hill CPG
  • Dottie Surdi, Mission Valley CPG
  • Sarah Jarman, Councilmember Scott Sherman's Office
  • Nancy Graham, Senior Planner
  • Sean Karafin, San Diego County Regional Chamber of Commerce (Moderator)

Panelists will speak on:

• The role of CPGs
• The value they get out of serving on a CPG
• Tips for how to get elected
