LA JOLLA (CBS 8) - President Barack Obama’s three day trip to California started in Los Angeles dubbed #Obamajam. Now he’s headed to San Diego Thursday afternoon for a luncheon at Qualcomm founder’s home Irwin Jacobs.

In the neighborhood there orange cones placed along the street warning drivers not to park during the event and no parking on the street where Jacobs lives.

A teen from Santee and her friend scouted out the area to see if there would be a place to get a selfie with the President.

"We wanted to see if there was secret service so we could propose our campaign to them," said Erin Mulligan.

She is a junior at West Hills High School in Santee and drew a poster in hopes of keeping with the POTUS selfie trend, “Please take a selfie with me. #erinprez2k14."

The president started his California swing in Los Angeles at U.S.C. where legendary director Steven Spielberg presented the President with the U.S.C. Shoah Foundation's Ambassador for Humanity Award.

On Thursday President Obama will land at Marine Corps Airstation Miramar and attend a $10,000 per-person luncheon at Jacobs home in La Jolla for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Environmentalists plan to welcome the President at the entrance to the La Jolla neighborhood to protest the Keystone Pipeline Project.

"We hope he gets the message and decides to reject the Keystone Pipeline,” said SanDiego350.org volunteer Masada Disenhouse.

Some neighbors living near Jacobs are not excited about the President making an appearance in their La Jolla neighborhood.

"I really don't care,” said Chris Williams. "It's a lot of cones for the President. It’s going to be a lot of congestion."

The FAA released a no fly zone to pilots on unscheduled commercial flights and civil aviation between 11:15 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. in the San Diego area.

Democratic Congressman Scott Peters will not be at the fundraiser. His spokesperson says it’s voting day at the Capitol.

The Republican National Committee says President Obama is using this fundraiser swing in California as his personal piggy bank.
