A Voice for La Jolla, Supporting Community and Creating Opportunities
The La Jolla Town Council recognizes what a challenging year we have all experienced and been affected by in one way or another. Challenges have been abundant and lives have been changed forever in so many ways. This has been a time for all of us to stand up, push forward and come together to fight like never before against Covid-19. The La Jolla Town Council would like to recognize those who have gone above and beyond, who have given when there was no more to give and who extended a helping hand to those in need. La Jollans have silently been performing amazing acts of kindness, generosity and selfless giving, and the Town Council wants to know about them and recognize and thank them for their efforts. No act is too small or too great. We can’t do this without your help. We need you to speak for them. Eight (8) Hometown Heroes will be selected and publicly recognized by the La Jolla Town Council at a recognition celebration in November as well as in the La Jolla Christmas Parade/Holiday Festival on December 5, 2021.
The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2021. Please help us to nominate and celebrate!!
Nominate Your Hometown Hero!

LJTC acts in many ways as a town hall where all can gather and air their questions and concerns. For example, LJTC has hosted events on short-term vacation rentals, sea lions at The Cove, homelessness and traffic. And for businesses, LJTC promotes a healthy and ever-expanding business environment.
As LJTC continues its metamorphosis from an entirely in-person, paper-driven entity into something more modern, I’d like to create a robust social media presence. We have a website and a Facebook account, of course, but my goal is to increase outreach through Instagram and Nextdoor as well.
LJTC, as a nonpartisan entity, has a chance to be the place where all can come and discuss any relevant political topic without fear of being shouted down or sidelined. I’d like to increase LJTC’s outreach and effectiveness vis-à-vis local officials.
La Jolla is a treasure. We’re fortunate to live and work here. But like anything of value, it needs constant upkeep and attention. LJTC has for decades been a central part of what makes La Jolla unique.
