The La Jolla Shores Association Records document the history of the association from 1926-1973, with the bulk of the materials created from 1964-1972. The entire
collection consists of paper materials such as correspondence, reports, and meeting minutes. The collection has been divided
into five series: La Jolla Shores Association, General Office Files, Newspaper and Magazine Clippings, Community Attitude Survey, and Oversized Materials.
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.
