- Sustainability Plan: The goals of this plan includereducing water consumption, diverting waste from residential trash collection by 70%, expanding alternative energy and transportation options, and increasing public awareness.
- Claremont Village Expansion: A former industrial tract adjacent to downtown Claremont was recently developed into a new shopping and entertainment district thanks to the efforts of the City’s Redevelopment Agency.
- Padua Hills Theatre: The theatre, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1930 by Pasadena architects Marston & Maybury and has a rich cultural history.
