Hey, Clairemont Community News readers!
Sad news to start off with this month: longtime Clairemont Garden Tour participant, winner, and supporter Jim Wright passed away in early August. If you ever had the pleasure of touring his property during Garden Tour, or had the pleasure of knowing Jim personally, you knew he was a real community treasure. His passion was gardening, and his palm trees are legendary. Jim, our dear friend, you will be missed.
As reported in the news, our Clairemont Girls Fastpitch Softball League was raided by thieves who stole several thousand dollars worth of equipment and materials -- much of which was recently purchased. If you can spare a few bucks to pitch in (no pun intended), to help our girls recoup some of their lost items, please consider donating via their website: www.cgfp.org
Our next meeting is Thursday, September 3rd at 6:30pm inside Cadman Elementary. Congressman Scott Peters will be joining us to update on federal issues, and we'll hear a presentation from County Animal Control representatives since there's been a rise in animal bites in our neighborhoods. We will also vote to approve some updated sections to our Bylaws, and those proposals can be found on our website: ClairemontOnline.com
Armstrong Garden Centers is looking at relocating into Clairemont at the current site of Southwest Boulder & Stone. In order to relocate, the property site needs to be rezoned -- from industrial to commercial -- and they've asked CTC for support. As an action item on our agenda, we will be recommending a vote on a letter of support for Armstrong Garden Centers. Please visit our website for more information.
Finally, CTC Board elections are coming up in November and nominations are open for the following offices: President, Vice President, Secretary, Director North, Director South, and two Director-at-Large seats. If you'd like more information, or would to run for a position on the Board, please contact Elections Chair Cory Lacy at Elections@ClairemontOnline.com
Working for you, Clairemont!
President, Clairemont Town Council
