Born In Mira Mesa
The young community of Mira Mesa, located between Interstate 15 and Interstate 805, was borne out of necessity. Beginning in 1969, a housing boom quickly populated the roughly 10,000 acre community with young families. Having expanded so quickly, there was a dramatic shortage of amenities, shopping malls, restaurants, and schools. The area popped up so unexpectedly that only two years later, Mayor Pete Wilson fuelled his campaign with the slogan “No More Mira Mesas!” It was a commitment to quell unplanned growth in Mira Mesa.
