Sitting at the crossroads of San Diego is Hillcrest. Everyone eventually passes through our neighborhood, and many of them end up calling it home — either with a mailing address or merely their own “sense of place.” In January of 2007 the residents formed the Hillcrest Town Council “to provide a voice & enhance the quality of life for Hillcrest renters & homeowners while supporting actions that benefit our neighborhood.” Here are a few ideas to help build a better community.

Hillcrest is an accepting urban village with a small town feel. We’re proud to be eclectic, and we love our history. In 2007 the community celebrated our first 100 years with a variety of fun events throughout the year. In October of that year Hillcrest was designated as one of the top ten great neighborhoods in America by the APA (on the first year they made the picks).

A true success story in terms of revitalization, Hillcrest has blossomed into one of the hippest, most happening communities in the nation. Nestled north of the world’s most famous Zoo and Balboa Park, it’s known for its wide array of award-winning restaurants, trendy stores, fabulous salons and spas, medical offices, two major hospitals and the largest concentration of gay and lesbian-owned businesses in the city. Those who live here enjoy a wide choice of older homes mixed with newer, upscale apartments and condominiums in one of the nation’s premier walkable neighborhoods
