Town Square Project

The Julian Community Heritage Foundation has been actively working on a new initiative for the development of the corner lot on Main St. and Washington St. Our vision is the creation of a Julian town square and would serve as a community park & outdoor entertainment space. Julian town square will be an epicenter of art, theater and community gatherings.

PROJECT BACKSTORY

The Julian Community Heritage Foundation started as a volunteer effort towards creating a Town Square for our historic town of Julian. It has been in the works for many years now. Various individuals and organizations have already contributed to the project and our collective efforts have raised $600,000 for the purchase of the lot. The plans were presented to Dianne Jacob, our San Diego County Board of Supervisors Representative at the time, and she was very supporting the project. We have been working with the Julian Architectural Review Board to ensure we are in compliance with historic district building guidelines.

Our next goal is to raise the necessary funds to develop the vacant lot. Read More...

The Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District needs our help. JCFPD is facing multiple challenges at the moment, including the end of a $60,000 county subsidy they've been receiving for the past 10 years. There are a few ways you can help. Let our County Board of Supervisors know that we want to maintain our independent/volunteer fire department.

The communities of Julian and Lake Cuyamaca need to demonstrate to San Diego County that we value our fire department and expect their support. This is urgent and can be done with letters, emails and phone calls. In the near future, there needs to be a serious discussion and input from the community regarding an increase in the annual tax to preserve JCFPD, or choose to dissolve.

Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District is at risk. Choices appear to be (1) Do nothing and persevere until finances force it to dissolve; (2) Voluntarily dissolve and allow the Fire Authority to take over; (3) Increase the Benefit Fee to cover the rising costs and remain viable as an independent/volunteer fire department.
