1. When and where does the MBTC meet? What happens at these meetings?
The meetings are held at the Belmont Park Community Room (above the arcade) the second Wednesday of each month (except August and December) at 6:00 PM. The meetings are free and open to the public. Meetings will cover current topics of concern for our neighborhood. Area representatives will provide updates on issues in their areas. Our elected officials have representatives present as does the San Diego Police Department and Lifeguards so we are able to share information and address specific concerns.
2. What does the MBTC do?
The board and the active members are working hard, along with elected officials, to make Mission Beach a better and safer place. Example areas of concern include Safety, Trash, Lighting, Parking, Neighborhood Watch, Good Neighbor Policy, Short Term Rentals, local event approval, Police/Lifeguard/Parks&Rec plans, etc.

If you have ever seen something in Mission Beach and said to yourself, "Someone ought to do something about that," or "This really bothers me about the beach area" and want to see positive changes happen sooner rather than later then we need you. Even if you just want to support those who are active in making improvements in the community, we need you. Your membership matters.
