    Historical Note:

    The East San Diego Chamber of Commerce was first established on December 31, 1912, to " . . . advertise the resources and advantages of East San Diego, health, business, altitude, even climate; to unite and maintain close relations with San Diego Chamber of Commerce and work in conjunction therewith." The last recorded meeting of this body was February 25, 1915. A new body was organized on March 11, 1925 after the annexation of the city of East San Diego to the city of San Diego, resulting in the current neighborhood called City Heights. This body was called the East San Diego Civic League, and met until April 25, 1927. Its purpose was to "further the improvement of the eastern section of the city and surrounding localities." A new organization under the name of East San Diego Chamber of Commerce began meeting in 1933 to promote "commercial and civic welfare in the northeastern section of the city of San Diego." This body was active until 1963.
