Monterey Park considers Marriott hotel at Atlantic and Hellman, invites Midwick Tract residents to info meeting

The city of Monterey Park is considering a proposal to build a Courtyard by Marriott hotel at the southwest corner of Hellman Avenue and Atlantic Boulevard, according to a notice mailed out to area residents in Alhambra.

The notice states that Monterey Park city staff is considering the proposal and invites residents to join members of Alhambra City Council in an outreach meeting on Wednesday.

Alhambra Councilman Steven Placido encouraged anyone interested in the development to attend the meeting. “While we don’t have direct control over another city’s activities, if you have any concerns, this is the time to voice your concerns as a resident of Alhambra, and just as a resident of the community that’s down there," Placido said during Monday's City Council meeting. Placido represents Alhambra's 4th District, which borders Monterey Park at Hellman Avenue.

The meeting will be informational and Monterey Park city staff will take no action on Wednesday, according to Placido. However, he emphasized the importance of early involvement. “It does set the stage for what’s coming in the process of planning commissions and city council meetings in Monterey Park," Placido said.

The meeting is scheduled for Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the Langley Senior Citizens Center, 400 W. Emerson Ave., Monterey Park, Calif., 91754.

  1. I couldnt get to this meeting, Monterey Park has rejected what is good for the city of Alhambra. They built the GIANT project at hellman and Atlantic with no care on how it affects the neighboring community in Alhambra… not to mention its own residents. Live work condos for sale was a joke from the beginning as they never would be able to sell out that many units at those prices. Now they want to put a hotel across the street? even closer to Alhambra… Maybe Alhambra should close Hellman to Atlantic…
