  1. The city council will approve the project.  It does not matter who,is there or what is said.  Their minds are made up…just like the planning commission.

    1. So true. I cringed at the commissioners' remarks at the end of the January meeting. Not only were they condescending; they appeared not to even understand most of the opponents' remarks. And I can't believe that the City Councilmembers won't act the same way. Grassroots Alhambra is wise to do its best to fight this unwanted, inappropriate project.
