About the Council
The purpose of the Town Council is to serve, represent, and promote the activities and interests of all Rancho de los Peñasquitos residents as well as neighborhood preservation and enhancement. As a forum for discussion and resolution of community issues, the Town Council will communicate ideas, recommendations, and concerns that impact Rancho de los Peñasquitos to residents, other community organizations, private and commercial interests, city, county, and state agencies, and other affected parties as appropriate.
Who We Are
The Rancho de los Peñasquitos Town Council is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of duly elected and appointed representatives from designated districts within Rancho de los Peñasquitos. The Town Council is a policy making body for the community. Official business is conducted at regular or special meetings of the Town Council, at regular or special meetings of the Executive Committee, and at meetings of other committees established by the Town Council. As appropriate, the Town Council will provide direction to and receive reports from the Executive Committee, other committees, and advisory representatives.
What We Do
Joining the Council
The Town Council is only possible because of the time and effort of those who volunteer. Elections for two-year terms are held every year at the Fiesta in May. Vacancies on the Council are filled year round by appointment.

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

The Town Council shall refrain from supporting any partisan, sectarian, or special interests, including the publishing and distribution of statements in favor of or opposition to such interests. This is not to be construed as a limitation upon fund-raising efforts, solicitation of advertising, taking a position on an issue of concern to the community, or encouragement to neighborhood and special area groups in the promotion and advocacy of their own interests as they see them, but rather, it is to prevent inappropriate favoritism or bias.
