Everything that’s old is new again. That’s the motto behind the Claremont Village’s latest concept, DeeLux, which has taken over the vacancy left behind by odds-and-ends boutique Raku. The DeeLux concept is equally eclectic.

Books won’t be the only things filling up the Claremont Public Library come September 2.
As soon the children’s summer reading program comes to a close, the construction crews are moving in as the library’s well-used and well-loved children’s section receives a much-needed upgrade.
This is the first time the children’s section has received updated digs since the local library first opened its doors in 1975.
While speed increases remain uncertain for a dozen Claremont streets, officials can now guarantee 3 of those in question will remain at reasonable speeds.
The California Department of Transportation recently approved the city’s application to reclassify Scripps Drive, Radcliffe Drive and Scottsbluff Drive (between Mills Avenue and Lassen Way) as local roadways. This designation will allow the city to keep speed limits on these designated roads at 25 miles per hour.

From the vintage neon of the 1950s and 1960s to the recent towering collection of logos gracing the corner of the Old School House complex, the streets of Claremont are lined with the signs of the time.
Nearly as numerous as the trees about town are the tin 12-by-16s welcoming you into the city, forbidding you from parking, and kindly thanking you for not smoking. Whether eliciting a sigh, groan or guffaw, it’s hard to deny—those bits of metal are a part of the culture of Claremont, the City of Signs.

The future of Claremont looks clear through the dust of construction planned for the coming years. Started earlier this summer, 8 new housing developments are planned for the city.
New construction will add more than 500 townhomes, single-family homes, condos and apartments to cater to a growing demand for homes in the Claremont area. All of the construction has a projected completion date in the next 3 to 5 years, if everything remains on schedule.
The city of Claremont is working hard to manage the crowds. But has the enormous increase in visitors at the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park taken away from the outdoor experience?
You might think by getting an early start on a Saturday morning, the chances are good you’ll beat the heat and crowds. It’s not often that one can experience the great outdoors with some peace, quiet and solitude so close to home.
Think again. Check out our slideshow at the end of the story inside.
