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.

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 hold tree ordinance public hearing

Alhambra , CA United States

The City Council will conduct a public hearing about a long anticipated tree ordinance today at 7 p.m. The ordinance would require private property owners to obtain permits to remove trees of a certain size and species. There’s more information on the public meeting notice and on the agenda, also attached below. After the hearing, the City Council is expected to approve a first reading of this ordinance.

The City Council first held a presentation about the tree ordinance last October. This measure comes after controversy over the removal of dozens of mature trees at the Camellia Court development on Marengo Avenue.

There will also be a presentation by Lucy Jones about earthquake issues facing Alhambra, as well as a presentation to create an Alhambra Facilities Financing Authority to replace the Alhambra Redevelopment Agency. There will also be a third presentation on the city’s homeless plan, which will give Alhambra access to Measure H funding. The Council is also expected to adopt a draft plan after the presentation.

The 2018-2019 fiscal year budget will also be approved at this meeting. The Council will also hear an urgency ordinance to make sure that lots can accommodate the safe placement of accessory dwelling units.

The consent agenda includes rescinding City Council approval of the Lowe’s development in order to facilitate dismissal of a lawsuit against the project.
