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.

Alhambra City Council will consider additional general plan survey

Alhambra , CA United States

The Alhambra City Council will consider two proposals from city staff for an additional survey on the general plan at 7 p.m. This survey will involve a representative sample of 400 households and was put on the agenda because of a motion made by City Councilmember Katherine Lee during the Jan. 14 City Council meeting.

The presentation also ties into planning commission concerns about lack of public outreach for the general plan.

The City Council will hear two planning commission appeals involving a local karaoke business and a mixed use development. The first appeal will take place at 5:30 p.m. and involves K100 KTV appealing a planning commission decision to not grant the business a license to serve beer and wine. K100 also wants to extend its business hours to 2:30 a.m., which the planning commission also denied. The planning commission did approve a permit for the business to expand the numbers of karaoke rooms the business offers and waived a requirement to have a certain number of parking spaces for patrons.

The City Council will then hear an appeal at 7 p.m. involving approval of a mixed-use development at 100 S. Monterey St and 201 E. Bay State St. The planning commission approved a permit to develop a five-story, 119,370 square foot, mixed-use residential condominium and commercial complex with 62 residential units, 20,568 square feet of commercial space and a six-level above-ground parking structure. The appeal was filed by Eric Sunada* of Grassroots Alhambra.

The City Council will also discuss a ballot initiative that would change local elections from at large to by district and set campaign funding limits, including which election date to set for the initiative and whether the City Council wants to write an argument against it.
