City approves demolition permit for residential development

The city of Claremont issued a demolition permit this week for the residential development planned by William Lyon Homes, at the southwest corner of Base Line Road and Towne Avenue. 

The demolition will include the removal of an existing abandoned concrete and stone water tank located towards the easterly side of the site, fencing south of the tank, a chain link fence along the western edge of the property along Towne Avenue, several ornamental trees on the eastern portion of the site and pavement leading to the former location of the strawberry shed. The strawberry shed has already been removed.

No grading or other construction will take place until after the remaining elements of the project are approved by the city’s architectural commission, who will review the plan at their meeting on Wednesday, September 10. Until then, construction fencing will be installed to secure the site, control dust and deter potential on-site dumping, according to city staff.

Residents with questions or comments or those seeking additional information should contact Luke Seibert by email at or by calling (909) 399-5483.
