City Council to discuss eliminating mixed-use development on East Main, possible location for a dog park

City Council and staff will discuss on Monday a dog park, a block party policy, and mixed-use development on East Main Street. Staff will also give an update on Alhambra’s role in hosting delegates from the Special Olympics. This is part of an adjourned regular meeting that will proceed in a “workshop format,” in which “it is anticipated that no action will be taken by the City Council unless otherwise indicated,” states the agenda.

The discussion regarding East Main aims to “promote the preservation of the commercial corridor” and “eliminate mixed-use” along Main Street from Chapel Avenue to the east city boundary. City Council enacted a week ago a 45-day moratorium on mixed-use development along the east side of Main. Staff said the moratorium will be used to evaluate the impact that development may have on health and safety.

City staff will also discuss a possible location for a dog park on New Avenue, along with a plan to implement the dog-friendly space. The location was targeted in Feb. 2013 and is being pushed forward as part of the Strategic Plan. The council will also consider the creation of a block party policy, which would restrict traffic on public streets for crowded public events. 

Councilmembers Luis Ayala and Barbara Messina encouraged residents during the Jan 26 Council meeting to attend Monday's adjourned session.

City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. however tonight’s meeting will be at 5:30p.m. in the Ruth Reese Hall of the Alhambra Library located at 101 South First Street.
