The Citizens Coordinate for Century 3 Collection contains a great deal of material that relates to the natural environment of San Diego, and also publications from other
environmental groups. A number of city and county agencies are also represented. The collection has been split into 11 major
series: General Files, Naval Regional Medical Center Issue Files, Office Files, Environmental Impact Reports & Information, Oversize Materials, Balboa Park / Navy Hospital Issue, Environmental Audit Committee Files, Comprehensive Planning Organization Files, Tijuana Flood Control Project, Newsletters, and Miscellaneous Files.
Citizens Coordinate for Century 3 was founded in 1961. The original name of the organization was Citizens Coordinate for
a Handsome Community, but in 1971 the title of the organization was changed to Citizens Coordinate for Century 3. The organization
is dedicated to the idea that the outward appearance of a community reveals and influences the character of its people, and
that civic beauty is an integral part of the community's cultural life. The group, when first established, advocated enlightened
planning, preservation of desirable open spaces, agricultural excellence, tree planting and better landscaping, control of
visual nuisance, and support of official efforts to achieve these goals. Since its founding C-3 has remained a non-profit,
tax-exempt, volunteer organization.
