The Scripps Ranch Life is a place for the community of Scripps Ranch to find all the latest up to dates news on the community and encourage involvement and interaction to develop a tight niche community.

Scripps Ranch is a community of San Diego, California in the northeastern part of that city. Its ZIP code is 92131. It is located east of Interstate 15, North of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, and South of Poway.

Scripps Ranch is a coastal/inland bedroom community within the City of San Diego. Miramar Reservoir is located within Scripps Ranch and offers recreational boating and fishing. A unique feature of Scripps Ranch is its landscaping, which includes many mature eucalyptus trees that are most apparent along Pomerado Road.


Scripps Ranch was originally a 400 acre (1.6 km²) ranch owned by newspaper publisher E.W. Scripps. He later expanded it to 1,200 acres (4.9 km2).

In October 2003, a section of south Scripps Ranch was devastated by the Cedar Fire, destroying over 300 homes.

Two elected planning groups (the Scripps Ranch Planning Group and the Miramar Ranch North Planning Committee), advise the city on local planning and land-use issues. The Scripps Ranch Civic Association (“SRCA”) acts as the defacto Community Town Council, meeting monthly and advising the City on all Quality of Life issues. The SRCA also acts as eyes/ears of the community, publishing a 70-80 page Community Newsletter every 30 days, which is hand-delivered to approximately 12,000 community households by hundreds of community volunteers monthly. The SRCA also sponsors the community’s annual 4th of July Parade, Spring Community Fair, Community Volunteer Recognition Night, Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony, and Community Clean-up / Garage Sale days. See the SRCA website (www.scrippsranch.org) to view the Newsletter as well as current events impacting the Scripps Ranch community, including the calendar for the SRCA Community Center, which the SRCA took over responsibility for after City of San Diego budget issues dictated a shuttering of the facility in 2009.
