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.

Jeff Maloney, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

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.

Adele Andrade Stadler, Alhambra Mayor

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Cliff Bender, Vice President, Alhambra Education Foundation

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

The Bike Lane Cometh?: Alhambra’s Struggle With Bicycle Safety

The draft General Plan recently approved by Alhambra’s Planning  Commission recommended a heightened priority to “develop a bikeway system with input from the community, and consider adoption of a system that prioritizes rider safety in order to provide say and efficiency connectivity for bicycles throughout the city, and consider integration with bikeway systems from neighboring cities.”

The commission’s language speaks to past criticism that the bike plan map included in the General Plan needed to be more comprehensive, while keeping traffic safety in mind.

The city council will take up the draft General Plan this month.

Traffic has long been a complex issue in Alhambra. The recent 626 Golden Streets Event, which closed off many streets in the city to vehicular traffic, was deemed a success to those advocating alternative forms of transportation. But away from the 626 route, residents driving cars faced frustrating traffic congestion unusual for a Sunday.  How to keep traffic moving and bicyclists safe is the challenge for many cities, including Alhambra.

Our Leah Chang took to the streets for a perspective on bicycle safety from the local cycling community.
