Claremont is getting one step closer to freeing itself from the prison of housing element non-compliance. The planning commission on Tuesday voted to recommend approval of a group of attachments that support the city’s housing element, with which Claremont has been out of compliance with the state since 2014. The housing element is an integral part of a city’s general plan, as well as state law, that outlines city demographics, affordable housing programs and how many low-income units per income bracket the city has room for.

Seems like the summer just flew by this year as Claremont hosted the last concert at Memorial Park Monday. A large crowd of over 1000 people listened to the music of the popular classic rock band The Answer. The night proved to be perfect for a picnic too, as the latest heat wave cooled its jets leaving temperatures in the upper 70s during the evening. This week will seem down right cool as high temperatures through the weekend will hover around 90, with lows in the 60s. No rain is in the forecast for Claremont, but the mountains will have a good chance of thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday, especially in the Big Bear area. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger

Georges Velasquez of Williams Sign Company repaints the iconic Coates Cyclery sign on Tuesday along Foothill Boulevard in Pomona. The former Coates location will now house the Pet Service Solutions, Pet Hotel, and the owners are remaking the sign with their information. According to Jay Stokes, co-owner of the pet hotel, the city of Pomona required that the sign retain its mid century appearance because it is a historic landmark.
