By Pat Sherman About 50 community members attending the La Jolla Town Council’s (LJTC) inaugural “State of La Jolla” event gained insight into the work of key planning and advisory groups during the Jan. 8 forum at La Jolla Rec Center.

The event — which offered updates on La Jolla-based groups advising the city on land-use, commerce and governmental issues — was the first this year in a planned series of four LJTC forums. The next events will highlight La Jolla’s arts and culture scene, charitable organizations (such as Rotary and Kiwanis), and churches and spiritual institutions, explained LJTC president Steve Haskins.
