Two elected planning groups (the Scripps Ranch Planning Group and the Miramar Ranch North Planning Committee), advise the city on local planning and land-use issues. The Scripps Ranch Civic Association ("SRCA") acts as the defacto Community Town Council, meeting monthly and advising the City on all Quality of Life issues. The SRCA also acts as eyes/ears of the community, publishing a 70-80 page Community Newsletter every 30 days, which is hand-delivered to approximately 12,000 community households by hundreds of community volunteers monthly. The SRCA also sponsors the community's annual 4th of July Parade, Spring Community Fair, Community Volunteer Recognition Night, Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony, and Community Clean-up / Garage Sale days.
