The Talmadge Community Council (TCC) is a neighborhood open forum for residents and property owners in San Diego’s Talmadge community. The TCC Chair facilitates a bi-monthly meeting consisting of reports from relevant City of San Diego officials, Talmadge organizations [Talmadge Maintenance Assessment District (TMAD), Kensington-Talmadge Planning Group (KTPG), Talmadge Patrol, and Neighborhood Watch], and agenda items raised by Talmadge residents. TCC is Talmadge’s “Live Newsletter” where attendees become efficiently and effectively informed on what is happening in and around the neighborhood.
Talmadge always needs volunteers, and here is where residents can learn to identify their best volunteer fit. The TCC also includes several working committees providing important service to the Talmadge community.
TCC’s current Chair is Brian Helmich. Routinely attending the bi-monthly TCC forum to hear Talmadge’s needs and concerns are: San Diego Police Department Mid City Division leadership and our SDPD Community Relations Officer, our City Attorney Neighborhood Prosecutor, and staff representatives of our District 9 City Councilmember, the Mayor’s Office, our State Senator, and our State Assemblymember. Occasionally, our City Councilmember and Council President, State Senator and Senate President Pro Tempore, and/or State Assemblymember will also attend TCC meetings in person to address State and local issues of interest to the Talmadge community.

We invite you to attend TCC meetings to stay current and informed about issues in and around the Talmadge community!
The strength, unity, and ongoing efforts for a better Talmadge are driven by Talmadge’s leaders and volunteers across our neighborhood organizations. These organizations’ representatives routinely attend and present information at TCC meetings. There is really no better way for a new neighbor to learn about their community, for property owners/residents to stay current and connected to one another, or to exchange views with Talmadge community leaders in a casual, neighborhood setting. Community leaders bring information and feedback from TCC meetings back to their organizations, knowing that having a pulse on neighborhood opinion that is essential to effective leadership. Community participation in TCC meetings fosters discussions for essential brainstorming, coordination, problem solving, and improvements in our Talmadge neighborhood!
