The City is updating the community plan in order to help shape the future of Clairemont for the next 20 years.

The Clairemont Community Plan Update will serve as the long-range vision for land use, mobility, urban design, public facilities and services, natural resources, historic and cultural resources and economic development. This plan update envisions the development of active, pedestrian-oriented areas to support opportunities for homes, jobs, and mixed-use development near transit. The plan update also focuses on retail and employment centers, residential areas, parks and public spaces, and bus rapid and light rail stations. The Community Plan Update envisions a mobility network that serves vehicles and encourages walking, bicycling and transit use. It acknowledges the natural network of canyons and open spaces as an integral part of the community.
