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.

On the agenda: Alhambra seeks input for new General Plan

City staff will announce at Monday’s City Council meeting how they will update the General Plan, which addresses a broad range of issues, from land use, to public safety, and housing. Staff will use the next 18 months to seek input on the municipal plan.

Titled "Vision 2035 – A Community’s Mosaic," the new plan will look at the diversity of the people and services offered in Alhambra to examine how everything works together. The City’s website states that there will be several opportunities for residents to discuss “what they think the future of Alhambra should be,” with the first being Saturday May 2 at Alhambra Park’s Eco Fair. The previous General Plan was adopted in 1987; the City notes that parts of the plan have been updated since then.

City staff will also revisit the city's Strategic Plan, a three-year-long initiative with objectives to meet every six months to improve the quality of life in Alhambra. City Council hears an update every month to discuss upcoming projects and what has been completed. Several items on the Strategic Plan have a May 1 deadline. Police Chief Mark Yokoyama is to come up with a proposal to equip officers with body cameras by the start of next month. Staff was also supposed to consider revising residential design guidelines, but the Strategic Plan states that this discussion has been incportated into the General Plan.

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.
