- Mission Canyon Association Questionnaire on Short Term Rentals
The Mission Canyon Association board of directors is considering weighing in on the short term rental (STR) issue now pending before the Board of Supervisors. Toward that end, we would appreciate hearing from as many MCA members as possible on this issue so that whatever position MCA takes will accurately reflect its members' views. Thanks in advance for your help.

- Mission Canyon Cell Phone Reception Questionnaire
The Mission Canyon Association is surveying Canyon residents about their experience with cell phone reception. Verizon is currently proposing installing a new cell phone tower in the canyon (possibly on property owned by the Botanic Garden), and the Garden has asked the Association for feedback on whether an additional tower is warranted. If built, other wireless providers (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) will be able to "piggy-back" their services on such a tower. Therefore, your help in responding to the following few questions will help us greatly in assessing the need for a new tower. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and help.
