On the agenda: City staff to request drought-tolerant landscape for Civic Center

Staff will request on Monday's regular meeting that the City Council put out a notice inviting bids for landscaping projects that will take place outside the Civic Center. In response to the ongoing drought, the staff seeks a design that will remove 20 percent of the current grass surrounding the Civic Center, and replace that with "California Native and water-wise vegetation," according to the meeting agenda. The city adds that it will look to "install water-wise irrigation systems and incorporate public demonstration gardens."
The project will be covered by grants from the San Gabriel Municipal Water District. If the request is approved by Council, bids from contractors will be due by 10:30am on Aug 27. 
Council will also do a second hearing and vote on an ordinance that will ban new housing developments and hotels from coming to East Main Street. If passed, the ordinance will rezone East Main Street into allowing only commercial business.
Michael Cacciotti of the Air Quality Management District will also give a presentation on air quality trends in the eastern region of Los Angeles County. He will speak on "clean air partnership opportunities" with the council.
Staff will also present an update on the city's Strategic Plana set of three-year and six-month objectives for city staff. The staff reviews the progress of objectives in the Plan on a monthly bases. 
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.
