Nighttime Main Street visitors should soon have valet parking at the library. City Council reviewed Monday evening Alhambra's six-month Strategic Plan, a set of future goals and objectives for the city. Assistant to the City Manager Chris Paulson announced during the meeting that the city has started the search for a parking vendor to offer valet services during peak hours at the Alhambra Civic Center Library. The service is set to start in May.
Another item on the Strategic Plan is a possible beautification project along Mission Road that will add islands with greenery in the middle of the street. Alhambra resident Lola Armendariz commented that islands can sometimes cause delays during emergency responses. During heavy traffic, police cars and ambulances may find it difficult to maneuver between cars because of islands that take at least one more lane on the road.
Alhambra City Council is holding next Wednesday a special meeting to discuss the Strategic Plan. The meeting will be on April 17 at 8 a.m. at the Alhambra Civic Center Library and is open to the public.
