A portion of Reagan Road in Mira Mesa to be changed to Marauder Way

San Diego, CA: Prior to the senior class breakfast on Friday, June 17, 2016, at 6:30 a.m., Councilmember Chris Cate, Mira Mesa High School officials, Mira Mesa Town Council members, and hundreds of Mira Mesa High School seniors will be dedicating and unveiling streets signs at twelve (12) intersections for the newly-renamed Marauder Way.

Councilmember Chris Cate, the City of San Diego, the Mira Mesa Town Council, and the Mira Mesa High School have been working in concert for over a year to change the portion of Reagan Road (between Mira Mesa Boulevard to Camino Ruiz where Mira Mesa High School is located), to Marauder Way. The street renaming pays homage to the Mira Mesa High School's mascot and touts the outstanding contributions Mira Mesa High School students and graduates have made to the San Diego community.

Through the City of San Diego's Community Projects, Program & Services (CPPS) Funding Program, Councilmember Chris Cate's office allocated $3,900 to the Mira Mesa Town Council for the costs associated with renaming the street and installation of the new signs.

"Mira Mesa High School is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Renaming the street is a wonderful way to acknowledge alumni, while endowing future generations," stated Councilmember Chris Cate.
