MISSION — The top stories for 2011 in the Mission area concentrated on the growing population and the effects it has on economic development groups and a local high school busting at the seam, among others.
The biggest story here was the Mission City Council’s February decision to disband and eliminate funding to the Mission Economic Development Authority which eventually led to a reshuffling of the board of directors serving on the Mission Economic Development Corporation.
Mayor Norberto “Beto” Salinas indicated he was not happy with how MEDA projects were handled or how long they took to complete. He also said he wanted the city to have one economic group like neighboring cities.
