The Talmadge Community Council (TCC) is a neighborhood open-forum for residents/property owners in the greater Talmadge area. The TCC Chair facilitates a bi-monthly meeting consisting of reports from the relevant City of San Diego officials, our 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 much to assess their best volunteer fit. The TCC also includes several working committees providing important service to the Talmadge community.
The TCC Chair is Tom Barb. The City Officials who routinely attend the bi-monthly TCC forum and hear Talmadge’s needs and concerns are: City Council District 9 staffer, our City Attorney Neighborhood Prosecutor, our San Diego Police Department Community Liaison Officer. Occasionally, our City Council Member, a Mayor’s Office rep, and our State Assemblymember attend the TCC meetings to address State and Local issues of interest to the Talmadge community.
The working committees of the TCC include:
Co-Chairs: Tom Barb, Ann Burnette-Troisi, and Kelly Waggonner
City Government Interfaces
9th District City Council Member Georgette Gomez
City Attorney’s Office Representatives Jeff Brooker and Lara Easton

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 the neighborhood organizations. These organizations’ representatives attend and present at the Talmadge Community Council (TCC) Forum routinely. By simply attending the TCC Forum, one is treated to an extraordinary, live cross-org infoshare from TCC, TMAD, TW:VCP, Block Party, and KTPG. There is simply no better way for a new neighbor to learn, for property owners/residents to stay current, or for Talmadge leadership to exchange. What these leaders learn from TCC forum is taken back to their organizations, as they know that having a true pulse on the neighborhood is essential to their effective leadership. The Talmadge leadership’s participation in the TCC Forum fosters the discussions for essential brainstorming, coordination, problem solving, and improvements in the Talmadge community!
