The Mira Mesa Town Council (MMTC) is a volunteer organization that works toward the improvement of the Mira Mesa Community. The Mira Mesa Town Council holds monthly meetings that provide information to the community and act as a forum for identifying and solving community problems. Elected representatives or their staff attend most MMTC meetings, and can research and respond to issues that arise at the meetings. MMTC meetings are held at 7 PM on the first Monday of each month.
The Mira Mesa Town Council sponsors many community activities and events including:
- The Mira Mesa Street Fair, held in September
- The Mira Mesa Fourth of July Celebration
- Clean and Green Day
- Annual Volunteer of the Year Dinner
- The Verne Goodwin Scholarship for Mira Mesa community High School Students
- The Mira Mesa Maintenance Assessment District Advisory Committee (MMMAD) that maintains landscaping along community streets.
The Mira Mesa Town Council also helps to support independent community activities including the Halloween Carnival, the Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol, and the Regional Teen Center.
The community of Mira Mesa stretches from the I-805 in the west to I-15 in the east. The southern border is the northern boundary of MCAS Miramar, then following the railroad tracks in the southwest corner. The northern border is Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve.
Upcoming Meetings - The next MMTC general membership meeting is scheduled for 7 PM Monday, June 3, 2013 at the Mira Mesa Senior Center.

The Fourth of July celebration includes a pancake breakfast, parade, fun day and fireworks in the evening. The event is expensive and free to the public, so requires a substantial fundraising effort.

The parade application and fun day vendor application are now online.
