Trader Joe’s Poll

Raise the Balloon committee members and 930 resident volunteers won the battle to stop our 30ft height limit from being busted by the city planning department to allow 60 ft condos to be built on the site at Clairemont Drive and Morena Blvd!  

After a successful electronic email petition campaign, residents were able to force SANDAG to drop their eminent domain lawsuit, one which, if successful, would have transformed the entry into our neighborhood into a large parking lot for the trolley.  Trolley Station Plan.

The lot usage has been greatly diminished for residential development and is now better suited for a grocery store. The previous Community Survey results show that 87% of survey takers want a Trader Joe’s to be built on the site.  

Please take this new Grocery Store Poll below or post comments of what you would like to see the site used for.  You can upload pictures, drawings, or sketches of your ideas.

Protea Development has purchases the site and will be actively soliciting a grocery as the anchor tenant.
