Alhambra , CA United States

At their 7 p.m. meeting, Alhambra’ City Council will adopt a sewer rate increase to make repairs and infrastructure updates to Alhambra’s sewer system. If a majority of rate payers write in to protest, the increase will not go through. More information here.

Tonight is also the second reading of Alhambra’s tree protection ordinance. If the City Council adopts the ordinance, it will go into effect 30 days from now. A protest against the ordinance is planned for 6:15 p.m., with opponents saying that it doesn’t far enough to protect private property trees.

There will also be presentations regarding the scope of the city’s upcoming general plan update and on Alhambra joining a regional partnership to fund electric vehicle charging stations throughout the city.

The City Council will also consider an urgency ordinance related to a staff report that clarifies lot size requirements for building an accessory dwelling unit in Alhambra. The consent agenda includes accepting donations from the West San Gabriel Valley Realtors Association and a foundation gift to make energy efficiency and ADA updates to the Joslyn Senior Center.

Ceremonies include commemorating Grace Blackwell as the 2019 Rose Parade float design contest.
