On the agenda: Traffic signal updates at Fremont and Mission, banners policy

Alhambra City Council will vote Monday whether to allocate $60,000 to replace traffic signals at the intersections of Mission Road and Fremont Avenue, and Fremont and 1000 South Fremont Avenue. The traffic signals are "well past their useful life" and malfunctioning, according to the council agenda. If approved, Los Angeles County Public Works staff will be commissioned to upgrade the signal.

City Council will also discuss and update its policies regarding hanging banners along Alhambra's streets, including Main Street, Garfield Avenue, and Fremont. According to Alhambra City Code, City Council can adopt regulations governing street banners, such as the pro-710 extension banners the city unveiled last Tuesday. Council will adopt a policy that will "clarify that the banner infrastructure is intended to be utilized for governmental purposes," according to the council agenda, and which entities may use the banners.

City Council 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.
