 Did you know that every May, Rancho Penasquitos holds an election?  That’s right.  Elections for two-year terms on the PQ Town Council are held every year at the Fiesta on the first Sunday in May.

Run for an elected position on the Council!  Applications are due at least two weeks before the Fiesta.  Please see the current year application at the bottom of this page for the exact date.  *April 21, 2017*

Missed the election application deadline?  Not to worry!  Vacancies on the Council are filled year round by appointment.  Just fill out the application any time and we’ll get back to you.

PQ-map1Additional Information:

The Town Council is made up of elected and appointed volunteers from eight districts laid out to coincide with the elementary school boundaries in PQ:

District 1- Adobe Bluffs
District 2- Canyon View
District 3- Deer Canyon
District 4- Los Peñasquitos
District 5- Park Village
District 6- Rolling Hills
District 7- Sundance
District 8- Sunset Hills

NOTE: If you do not know what elementary school district you are in, please review our district boundary map

There can be up to two elected representatives from each district.  Additional appointed positions also exist.

Now you’re thinking about it, but you’re not sure.  Remember that the Town Council is only possible because of the time and effort of those who volunteer.  If you have some time and effort to give, this is your community opportunity.

Still interested?  Great!  Missed the elections in May? No problem, we welcome members at large and it’s a good way to get involved before you commit yourself.   Please fill out the appropriate Membership Application below.  Then urge your friends and neighbors to get out to the Town Council’s booth at the Fiesta to cast a vote for you.  See you there!
