I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

Jeff Maloney, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

New bus line in Alhambra, City Council extends 4th of July celebrations

Alhambra Community Transit will start a new bus route in Alhambra pending approval from the Los Angeles County MTA. Mary Chavez of Alhambra's Transportation Commission presented to City Council on Monday plans for the Yellow Line, which will provide service to residents who live in the northern and southern areas of Alhambra by passing through Alhambra Road, Atlantic Boulevard, Hellman Avenue, and Garfield Avenue. The Yellow Line existed in the mid-1990s but was discontinued in 1997 due to lack of ridership. If approved, its time of operation will run similar to the Green Line.

City Council members extended Alhambra's 4th of July celebration to a half-day event with penny carnival games, local food vendors, and live entertainment from local dance and music schools. The festivities will now start at noon and an enhanced fireworks show will begin at 9 p.m.

Real estate developer The Charles Company also presented during the meeting the first draft of a potential residential and commercial project on Fremont Avenue and Orange Street. The proposed retail center and 313 condominiums will be on the former site of the Alhambra Foundry Company. Resident Sonia E. McIntosh spoke up during the meeting about her concerns related to the project, mainly increased traffic on the main roads, noise and pollution levels, and its close proximity to Emery Park Elementary School.

City Council meets every second and fourth Monday of the month in the second floor of the City Hall: 111 S. First St., Alhambra, Calif., 91801. The next meeting will be held on Monday, March 25, 2013, 5:30 pm at the Alhambra City Hall Council Chambers.

Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us!
