About HTC

Our Village Has A Voice

HTC Mission Statement: To provide a voice and enhance the quality of life for Hillcrest residents, renters and homeowners, while supporting actions that benefit our neighborhood. If you live within or near Hillcrest, you are encouraged to participate.

The Hillcrest Town Council (HTC) was founded in January 2007 and hit the ground running. Te group formed committees to address the concerns of the neighborhood — Development, Litter/Graffiti, Centennial, Crime and a Steering Committee.  HTC Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8pm at the Joyce Beers Community Center in the Uptown Shopping District. Guest speakers educate neighbors on issues that affect us and there is also an opportunity for area residents to voice concerns to each other, as well as to our government representatives.

During the first year, the HTC held a forum for Council District 3 candidates, brought Mayor Jerry Sanders, Councilmember Toni Atkins and City Planning Director Bill Anderson to speak and listen to concerns about high-rise developments in our neighborhood and invited Steve Francis, mayoral candidate to speak. Other topics have included the future of light rail in Hillcrest, mobility studies and police department updates on area crime and homelessness.

The HTC Litter committee has supported several neighborhood cleanups, worked with the Hillcrest Business Improvement Association to remove abandoned or unpermitted news racks that clutter the sidewalks and acted as a liaison to the city in an effort to control graffiti and optimize trash pick-up. Current projects are underway to acknowledge residents and businesses for beautifying their properties and enhancing our community.

The Development Committee has been an advocate for the Interim Height Ordinance and the preservation of our community’s character. This watchdog group has added a Hillcrest Development Watch page to the HTC website ( that alerts members to street addresses for demolitions, new construction and remodels.

The Crime Committee is working to expand the Oversized Vehicle Ordinance into our area as well as interacting with the neighborhood SDPD Community Relations Officer to target specific concerns addressed by residents.

Hillcrest has been given a voice. Please join us at the next monthly meeting to make that voice even stronger.
