La Mesa San Diego Movers
La Mesa is a city in Southern California, located 9 miles east of Downtown San Diego in San Diego County. Its civic motto is “the Jewel of the Hills.” La Mesa in Spanish means “the table”, or alternately “the plateau”, relating to its geography. La Mesa was part of a larger tract, Mission San Diego de Alcalá, and was used by Spanish Missionaries. La Mesa was founded in 1869 and The City of La Mesa was incorporated on February 16, 1912, under the general laws of the state of California. As such, it does not have a city charter but operates under the laws of the state of California in all respects not specifically covered by any city ordinance. Its official flower is the bougainvillea.
It is bordered by the city of San Diego on the west and north, Spring Valley and Lemon Grove on the south, and El Cajon on the east. It includes the neighborhood of Grossmont. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 9.1 square miles. 9.1 square miles of it is land and 0.04 square miles of it is water. La Mesa is approximately 12 mi east of the Pacific Ocean. Because of this, La Mesa typically experiences more extreme temperatures than San Diego, which mostly lies significantly closer to the Pacific Ocean. La Mesa has a Semi-arid Steppe climate. La Mesa typically has hot, dry summers and warm winters with most of the annual precipitation falling between November and March. The city has dry weather with around 13″ of annual precipitation. Summer temperatures are generally hot, with average highs of 78°F-92°F and lows of 56°F–68°F. Winter temperatures are warm, with average high temperatures of 66°F–77°F and lows of 46°F–58°F. The climate in the San Diego area, like much of California, often varies significantly over short geographical distances resulting in micro-climates. In San Diego’s case, this is mainly due to the city’s topography (the Bay, and the numerous hills, mountains, and canyons). Frequently, particularly during the “May gray/June gloom” period, a thick “marine layer” cloud cover will keep the air cool and damp within a few miles of the coast, but will yield to bright cloudless sunshine approximately 5–10 miles inland. This happens every year in May and June. Even in the absence of June gloom, inland areas tend to experience higher temperatures than areas closer to the coast.
In La Mesa, there is a Farmer’s Market in La Mesa Village every Friday afternoon. On June 14, 1997, with the help of Councilmember Ruth Sterling, the City of La Mesa inaugurated its First Annual Flag Day Parade as well. The “Walkway of the Stars” is a pedestrian walkway that has been transformed into an urban park in downtown La Mesa. The vision for a place to recognize La Mesa’s extraordinary volunteers was provided by Councilmember Ruth Sterling. The park’s theme honors the city’s outstanding volunteers who have provided 10,000 or more hours of service to the city of La Mesa. “Walkway of the Stars” is located between the Allison Avenue municipal parking lot and La Mesa Boulevard
