Kensington-Talmadge Planning Group (KTPG)

The Kensington-Talmadge Planning Group (KTPG) advises the City of San Diego on matters of land use, project development, public infrastructure projects, and community character in the Kensington and Talmadge communities. It is also the City of San Diego’s primary means of communicating with the Kensington and Talmadge neighborhoods on these types of issues.

The 15-member KTPG Board represents the residents, property owners, and corporate entities within the KTPG Boundary Map. KTPG meetings are open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.

KTPG Meetings are generally held on the second Wednesday of every month, though the schedule may occasionally vary. Unless otherwise noted, meetings are normally held at Copley-Price Family YMCA Community Meeting Room (4300 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA, 92105) at 6:30 p.m.

The KTPG also has several subcommittees where many issues are evaluated and recommendations are made to the planning group board. These subcommittee meetings are more informal than the KTPG meeting and community participation is welcome. Subcommittee meeting times vary; check for more information.

Seventy two hours prior to meetings, the Chair posts Meeting Agendas and notifications for the KTPG Meetings and the KTPG Subcommittee Meetings via the neighborhood forum on Nextdoor and on the KTPG website. You can also register with the City of San Diego to receive agendas directly via email by going to:  By registering with the city, you also receive information about any special meetings that may be called.

Please check the KTPG website at for the most accurate & current information about the planning group, its subcommittees, agendas, elected members, governance, meeting schedules, and projects past, present, and future.
