Greetings Lovers of Claremont!

As we move towards the end of another year, we have much to be thankful for! The amazing community in which we live and the cultural attributes that we have are abundant and rich.  Claremont's unique sense of place and quality of life is kept alive by the celebration and active preservation of our Heritage. 
As Claremont's General Plan says -  
Claremont didn't happen by accident.  The City is a result of foresight and planning... The mix of uses, our neighborhoods and business districts, the relationship of The Claremont Colleges to surrounding uses, and the overall visual character of our community reflect the foresight and and deliberation of our founders, the principled decision making of our leaders, and the intense interest and vigilance that residents apply to preserve what has been established.
