Alhambra , CA United States

At 7pm, the City Council is holding a public hearing on allowing “accessory dwelling units” with certain requirements in all residential zones in the city. This is after the state legislature passed laws loosening requirements for second units to address the housing crisis. Nine applications have already been approved under state law, and 18 are being considered.

After the public hearing, the council will vote on a first reading of the ordinance.

The City Council will also hold a public hearing on extending a moratorium on private marijuana cultivation and non-medical marijuana facilities.

Alhambra Police Chief Timothy Vu will discuss the Taking Back Our Community Coalition, which will address how law enforcement with adjust to unintended consequences of recent laws and populations that reduced penalties for certain crimes, among other changes.

The consent agenda includes a proposal to extend pool hours at Granada Park and Alhambra Park during the fall and winter months.

Closed session will include an update about the City’s city manager search.
