Role of the LJTC

The key role of the La Jolla Town Council is to ratify the work of our joint and sub-committees. This work is undertaken in the 30 days prior to the LJTC Meeting. In addition to also providing a voice or the Community in a figurative sense, the Council offers a literal platform for opinion and guidance via Trustee voting. Common topics brought forth for vote among Trustees are in regard to events staged in La Jolla and also community issues that demand the attention of City Council. Unlike the La Jolla Merchant’s Association, which is targeted toward merchants in the Business Improvement Districts, the Town Council supports all community residents and votes on matters that affect the community as a whole. The Town Council feeds into the City Council, and brings local affairs to the attention of the City Council on a monthly basis.

LJTC Mission Statement

The La Jolla Town Council provides a forum for residents and businesses to address community issues and opportunities through monthly meetings, programs and events. It is volunteer led and regularly reviews and assesses its effectiveness in achieving its mission.
