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.

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 , CA United States

The city of Alhambra is presenting a final version of a general plan update and environmental impact report that outlines policies for the community’s long-term growth to the planning commission on Jan. 22.

A presentation will be made at 7 p.m. in City Council chambers by Rincon Consultants, who put together the general plan and EIR, according to an announcement from Alhambra’s Department of Community Development. The planning commission will also conduct a public hearing about the general plan. Updated documents will be published to the city’s website on Friday, Jan. 11.

The planning commission is then expected to recommend the general plan for approval by Alhambra’s City Council during its Feb. 4 meeting. Interested parties will be notified of that meeting, said Deputy Director of Community Development Vanessa Reynoso in an email.

Entitled “Vision 2040: A Community Mosaic,” the general plan lays out possible policies for improving business, traffic, transportation, health and other quality of life issues for Alhambra during the next 20 years. The accompanying EIR found significant impacts for traffic from the plan, said Reynoso, but few impacts in other areas.

Alhambra residents have taken a special interest in the plan’s proposal to add bike lanes to the city’s roads, as well as a proposal to develop hotels and retail on Valley Boulevard. The plan’s suggestion to consider a park over the railroad trench on Mission Road has attracted controversy.

Updated at 4:10 p.m. to clarify notification for the Feb. 4 general plan meeting.
