La Jolla Shores Association (1966-) | Special Collections & University Archives

Name: La Jolla Shores Association (1966-)

Historical Note:

The La Jolla Shores Association was formed in 1966.  Still active today, it is made up of volunteers who live, own property, or own/operate a business in La Jolla, CA.  The association was formed to protect the architectural and environmental character of the La Jolla area, allowing it to maintain its "distinctive identity" as one of Southern California's coastal communities.  In 1967, the City Council adopted the La Jolla Community Plan which was written by local residents.  Between 1971 and 1972 funds were authorized for city staff to work with the La Jolla Shores Association on issues such as housing, limitations on development, parks, and beautification of the area; this partnership resulted in the creation of the La Jolla Shores Precise Plan which was adopted by the San Diego City Council in November of 1972.  The Planned District Ordinance (PDO) was then created to implement the La Jolla Shores Precise Plan.  The PDO was also responsible for the establishment of the La Jolla Shores Planned District Advisory Board.  Comprised of seven local residents appointed by the mayor, the board reviews all permit applications and reports their findings to the City Planning Director.

In order to represent local interests, the La Jolla Shores Association collaborates with both local and state government agencies.  Monthly meetings are held to discuss issues such as the protection and preservation of the local environment, building permits, transportation, local businesses, and other community issues.  Meeting minutes are available on the Association's website.
