Alhambra City Council approved Monday traffic signal upgrades at the intersections of Fremont Avenue and Mission Road and 1000 South Fremont Avenue and Fremont. The traffic lights are due for maintenance, according to city staff. The upgrades are estimated to cost $60,000.
City Council also approved a resolution to clarify the policy on horizontal banners in the city, which are installed on Main Street, Garfield Avenue, and Fremont. City Council's resolution clarifies that the banners are for city government use.
Resident Lola Armendariz addressed City Council Monday regarding the banners and their poles, asking why the public was not informed before the recent installation of the pro-710 banners on Fremont. Armendariz said the banners changed the look of Fremont. "I'm concerned that you didn't ask or have this agendized or get any citizen input on a project like this, and the horizontal banners are geared towards the 710 freeway," Armendariz said. "Who came up with this and why didn't you let us know? But that's no surprise."
