City residential Reminders – for week of June 10

Fourth of July update
In City Manager Adam Pirrie’s weekly newsletter for June 2, the city announced that a concert featuring The Ravelers at Memorial Park, 840 N Indian Hill Blvd. will be held in place of fireworks during this year’s Fourth of July celebration.

“The city made the difficult decision to cancel the July 4th Fireworks Show due to the drought and watering restrictions,” the city cited. “With the outdoor water restrictions in effect and the adoption of the Water Conservation Ordinance by the City Council limiting water use, the extensive watering necessary to prepare the field for the aerial fireworks show will not be possible.”

While no fireworks will be in the sky, a good time can still be had by all at Memorial Park from 6 to 8 p.m. Food concessions will be offered.

Claremont Village Freedom 5000
Though Fourth of July fireworks are canceled, the Claremont Village Freedom 5000 is still on the cards for July 2.

The Claremont Village Freedom 5000 is a family-friendly event that features a 1K kids fun run, a 5K noncompetitive run, and a 5K walk/competitive race walk “through the scenic tree-lined streets of Claremont.” Attendees may also walk during the races.

A map of the courses is available online at The starting point for all races will be Memorial Park, 840 N. Indian Hill Blvd.

The 1K will take place at 7:30 a.m. for children ages 12 and under. All will be awarded a medal of participation after crossing the finish line.

The 5K run then begins at 8:00 a.m. and the 5K walk begins shortly after at 8:05 a.m. Medals are given to the first 3 individuals in each division. Free shoes will also be given to the male and female overall winners.

Commercial vehicle parking and storage in residential districts
The city wants to remind residents that Claremont prohibits the parking and storage of commercial vehicles in residential neighborhoods.

“Vehicles weighing 10,000 pounds or more cannot be stored or parked in residential neighborhoods, unless making pick-ups or deliveries, or making repairs for a period of no longer than five hours. Commercial vehicles include tow trucks, semi-cabs, street sweeps, and cement trucks,” the city shared.
