The Clairemont Town Council has not endorsed or opposed the Balboa Mesa project, and is posting the following information from Regency Centers as an informational update.


Community Input Shapes Design Changes for Proposed In-N-Out Burger

In February, Regency Centers presented a renovation plan for Balboa Mesa Shopping Center, including the addition of an In-N-Out Burger, to the Clairemont Community Planning Group, which voted 9-2 to support the proposal and recommend approval to the San Diego City Council. 

As part of the redevelopment process, Regency has actively sought out feedback from the community and the City. In fact, more than 350 Clairemont Mesa residents have signed support cards in favor of the project.

From the Archives!

Simone Henriques Director-at-Large/Historian

It is with great pleasure that for the past year I have been actively involved with the Clairemont Town Council (CTC). I have also been recently appointed as Historian for the CTC.   As a Historian, it is my task to reconstruct past events and speak faithfully about Clairemont Town Council History.  Recently, I have been fascinated with the amount of facts and documents I found and gathered throughout my research. Facts defining the formation of Clairemont Town Council to the succession of presidents, as well as, of previous members and community events held by the council.

Clairemont Town Council History dates back to September 20, 1954 when Clairemont Boosters Club and Clairemont Civic Association decided to join forces with temporary officers elected to create the Council. The CTC first official meeting was held at the Whittier Elementary on January 24, 1955. During the meeting, Howard I. Kaufman was appointed as the first president of Clairemont Town Council.

Garden Tour Success a Win-Win for Clairemont

Big THANK YOU to the homeowners, volunteers, and of course the hundreds of ticket buyers who made this year's Clairemont Garden Tour one of our most successful ever! This year we had three garden categories to vote for your favorites: Ornamental Garden winner was Mr. Leland Fletcher, Water-Wise Garden was Bruce & Marlene Miller, and Edible Garden winner was Nele & Paul Berner. Congratulations!

For those who are unaware, the annual Clairemont Garden Tour is the Town Council's single largest fundraiser of the year -- in which proceeds go to fund community grants such as funding food packages for needy families through Community Christian Service Agency, various Boy/Girl Scout projects, the Clairemont Hilltoppers, and our most recent grant award was to help replace football helmets at Clairemont High School through their booster club.
