Rezoning for Midwick Development to be voted on by Planning Commission Cancelled

The scheduled meeting on the Midwick project has been cancelled and rescheduled for January 20th at 7 PM. Alhambra Planning Commission will vote on recommendations to approve the 70 unit development in the Midwick neighborhood.  

The meeting takes place in council chambers at 111 S. 1st St, Alhambra on January 20th at 7PM.

City Ventures, the current owner, has asked the city to approve a Specific Plan authorizing rezoning for the development. The controversial development has been opposed by Preserve Midwick, a local group of residents opposed to the project. 

The Planning Commission will vote on rezoning a mixed residential part of the Midwick neighborhood to R-3 for incorporation into the planned gated community. 

Residents oppossing or supporting the project are encouraged to come and voice your views.

  1. Soo.. Alhambra is all for completing the 710 because they want to take all that  traffic off of Fremont…  But they're considering approving the high density project ON FREMONT!?? makes no sense. 

  2. Shameful that this important meeting was cancelled at the last minute. The previous hearing on Midwick was also cancelled with little notice to the community. This discourages  public participation. Residents and organizers make time in their schedules to engage in their city government and come down to city hall only to find the meeting is cancelled. This one day cancellation practice must stop when there are projects that have major community inpact and residents have made plans to attend. The net affect is people are turned off, do not come back and the project does not get the proper scrutiny it deserves. This only benefits the developer and hurts the people

  3. I predict the Planning Commission will approve the zoning change.  Commercial interests run this city.

  4. Please come an attend this important meeting.
