PLRC Sightings
Various PLRC structural projects dot the San Diego landscape. One of them was the Shelter Island gazebo/belvedere, constructed in 1979. It became a focal point for residents, visitors, weddings, and other festive events.

The Port District replaced it, in 2005, near the end of Shelter Island Drive.
Contemporary structural evidence of existence of the PLRC's existence 
includes the Liberty Station Rotary Clock Tower. This solar powered creation was initiated via a City of San Diego application process. The original $20,000 price tag was split between the PLRC, Hervey Founda- tion, and the Davis family. Jim Davis was a member of PLRC for over 25 years. He served in many capacities, including Club President. 

Although Jim passed in 2008, this project was completed in 2010, under the direc- tion of Dick Thorn. Dave Leedom's photo of the clock's dedication plaque is pictured right. The PLRC is responsible for its per- petual upkeep. Club members−directed by Dick Thorn−refurbished the PLRC clock tower in 2021. It has thus been painted twice with one battery change.

The Cabrillo National Monument is at the southern tip of the Point Loma Peninsula. It commemorates the landing of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo at San Diego Bay in 1542. The site was designated as California Historical Landmark in 1932. Cabrillo was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966.                                                                                                                                                                                  
The Cabrillo National Monument Tide- pool Plaque (pictured left) lists the several organizations, including the PLRC's $3,500 contribution, to the evolution and enhancement of the Point's environment.  The tide-  pools, also known as the Rocky Intertidal Zone, offer amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, and the opportunity to discover the native plants and species that live in this unique habitat. The pictured trailer, on which the above plaque is affixed, is used by park rangers to gather and take shift breaks. Photos were provided by Leon Scales. 

The Village Lights plan was developed by the Point Loma Association (PLA) in cooperation with the County and City of San Diego. PLA identifies and advocates for public realm improvements that contribute to the quality, character, culture, and livability of the Peninsula. Construction began the summer of 2021. 

The PLA gathered sponsors to create a series of light assemblies at various locations in Point Loma. This initiative was supported by a PLRC donation.
