Community Profiles Clairemont

The Clairemont Mesa community, encompassing approximately 13.3 square miles, lies south of state Route 52, west of Interstate 805, north of the Linda Vista community, and east of Interstate 5.

Clairemont Mesa is one of the first post-World War II suburban developments in the City of San Diego, with many of its homes built in the 1950s and 1960s. The area is largely defined by its prominent topography. Developed areas of Clairemont Mesa sit primarily atop mesas punctuated by several major canyon systems, with San Clemente Canyon to the north and Tecolote Canyon weaving through the center of the community. Many of the neighborhoods in the western portion of the community enjoy views of Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Several significant commercial centers serve Clairemont Mesa and are located at the intersections of major transportation corridors, such as Clairemont Drive and Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, as well as Balboa Avenue and Genesee Avenue. Smaller pockets of commercial development are interspersed throughout the community and along Morena Boulevard.

Transit service currently consists of a number of local and express bus lines, however, the Metropolitan Transit Development Board (MTDB) is in the process of improving future service to the Mid-Coast corridor.

Morena Corridor Specific Plan Process

Public Review Draft Now Available

The City has evaluated and provided recommendations for the areas adjacent to the Mid-Coast trolley stations at Tecolote Road and Clairemont Drive within the Clairemont Mesa and Linda Vista community planning areas. The recommendations address the future form of development in light of the introduction of the Mid-Coast Light Rail Transit (LRT) Trolley extension. In addition to land use and urban design recommendations, mobility improvements throughout the area have been identified for bicyclists, pedestrians, vehicles, and transit users.

The Morena Corridor Specific Plan builds upon the technical analysis and recommendations prepared and extensive public input received from the study. The specific plan provides policies and recommendations that address land use, mobility, urban design, recreation, and conservation to enhance the corridor.
