  1. When you think about how little the City of Alhambra has done throughout its history to protect these beautiful, characteristic homes (and has lost countless historic homes and structures rivaling our more-attuned neighbors to the north), these kinds of award recognitions are valuable to our communities.

    I wish our politicians were not so well-connected to developers and their own profit motives in the form of campaign contributions as well as personal property acquisition. I can't think of ANY councilmember in my 40-years of living here that ran on the platform of “improving our neighborhoods.” Every one of them has had an “individual property owner rights” mentality instead of looking at it from what benefits the communities as a whole. Just look at some of the blighted areas where apartments and condos are abundant (graffiti, shopping carts, etc.).
