SAN DIEGO -- Mayor Bob Filner will address the Hillcrest Town Council (HTC) at the group's first meeting of the year, taking place tonight at 6:30 pm.
HTC representatives say that the mayor will speak about his vision for neighborhoods and that there will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions or voice their concerns directly to Filner.
Following Filner's presentation, representatives from other local government offices will give updates and take questions from those in attendance.
The group also plans to hand out another one of its L.I.O.N. Awards - Let's Improve Our Neighborhoods - to Leslee Evans of Creative Futons. The furniture store, based in North Park, recently restored a Craftsman home at 3734 Sixth Ave. in Hillcrest to be the site of their second location.
Benjamin Nichols, executive director of the Hillcrest Business Association (HBA), will address the group and share his organization's plans for 2013. HBA organizes popular Hillcrest events and promotions such as CityFest, Hillcrest Hoedown and Taste 'n' Tinis.
Community members who have never attended an HTC meeting before are especially encouraged to attend to learn how they can get involved with their neighborhood in the new year.
The meeting takes place at the Joyce Beers Center in the Uptown Shopping district on Vermont Street, just north of University Avenue.
