Council to consider revised landscaping ordinance, extending moratorium on massage establishments

The council will conduct on Monday a public hearing on the extension of an existing moratorium that stops the granting of business licenses to massage establishments. If passed by the council, this urgency ordinance will go into effect on January 7, and will extend to January 6 of 2017. 
Council will also revisit a proposed ordinance that regulates landscaping in Alhambra. The ordinance is required by the State, which mandates that all municipalities take measures to follow the water conservation guidelines as suggested by the State Water Resources Control Board. The ordinance was presented at the previous council meeting, but Councilmember Steven Placido was concerned that the language regarding parkways was not specific enough. Namely he was concerned about the usage of artificial turf on parkways, and the effect it may have on trees. Council then tabled the vote and ask that staff return with a revised ordinance that clarifies the language concerning parkways.
Staff will also request that council adopt a resolution that creates a "Preferred Parking District" in the Midwick Tract. According to city documents, residents on South Westmont Drive sent a petition asking the City to alleviate a parking issue. Residents claim that, with the growing enrollment at Cal State LA, students have been parking in their neighborhood. 
City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at City Hall. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
