The 18th Annual Clairemont Garden Tour
Ingrid Terpening
Chair, Garden Tour Committee

President's Letter: May 2014
Ryan Trabuco
President, Clairemont Town Council

This time last month we didn't know who the City Council was going to appoint to serve the remaining 8 months of now-Mayor Kevin Faulconer's term in District 2. Former Marine and lifeguard Ed Harris was appointed to fill the vacancy, and Councilman Harris has been busy making the rounds at various community meetings throughout the district, and we're excited to have him visit Clairemont Town Council soon.

Councilman Harris's appointment comes at an appropriate time in our Clairemont community's history given the widespread, oft-heated discussion on the future of Morena Blvd., density, and community identity. Councilman Harris has jumped into action on these community issues and is holding open community meetings with him and his District 2 staff. If you'd like to learn more about Councilman Ed Harris, please contact his office at 619.236.6622


Also, Councilman Harris is holding a Morena Blvd./Bay Park Town Hall on April 30, 2014 at 7:00pm inside the Bay Park Elementary School Auditorium located at 2433 Denver Street, San Diego, CA 92110. This would be a great opportunity for everyone in District 2 to meet our new city councilman and hear the latest on the Morena Blvd. Station Area Planning Study.
In just a few weeks, our 18th Annual Clairemont Garden Tour will be here and we hope you're just as excited about it as we are!
Tickets are available online at, and are $12 for general admission, and $10 for Seniors (55+). Tickets purchased in-person are $15, and will be available soon at The UPS Store at Clairemont Town Square, or at Postal Connections at 3895 Clairemont Drive.
The SDG&E Energy Innovation Center (EIC) on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. will host our Garden Tour Expo this year. The Expo will include booths from our Garden Tour sponsors and will feature a cooking demonstration by Chef Palma sponsored by the Clairemont Produce Cooperative, and workshops in the EIC's demonstration kitchen, residential smart home, California friendly landscaping, and rain water catchment/grey water recycling.  At 3pm, there will be a reception and awards for the best garden and visitor favorite will be presented.
If you have any questions or want more information about the Clairemont Garden Tour, please email, or call the Clairemont Town Council at 858.480.9430.
Also, there are some significant city elections coming up.
