From the city managers weekly report this tidbit, lights coming to Foothill/California. I wish they could come up with a solution to getting on and off our street during rush hours...but that's wishful thinking.
From the Report:
From the Report:
NEW TRAFFIC SIGNALS PROPOSED ON FOOTHILL BOULEVARD AT CALIFORNIA AVENUE AND SUNSET PLACE
During the past several months, staff has been working to execute the completion of a Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) grant project that involves the redesign and construction of three new pieces of traffic control infrastructure, including:
Installation of a new traffic signal at Huntington Drive and Fifth Avenue
Installation of a pedestrian crossing signal at Foothill Boulevard / Sunset Place
Installation of a pedestrian crossing signal at Foothill Boulevard / California Avenue
Initially, our plan was to replace the existing pedestrian light on Foothill Boulevard at California Avenue, while installing a new pedestrian crossing light on Foothill Boulevard at Sunset Place. However, as we have coordinated the engineering work for both locations, our team has surmised that installing two new traffic signals on Foothill Boulevard at Sunset Place and at California Avenue would be a preferred alternative. This updated recommendation has been developed based on concerns that a pedestrian crossing signal will not adequately manage cross-traffic situations at both locations,
HOLIDAY PUBLIC SAFETY TIPS SEMINAR (“DON’T LET THE GRINCH RUIN CHRISTMAS!”) COORDINATED BY THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, SET TO TAKE PLACE ON DECEMBER 8, 2016, FROM 7:00 P.M. TO 8:00 P.M. IN THE LIBRARY COMMUNITY ROOM
During the past year, public safety concerns in Monrovia have become more pressing as the City has, during 2016, seen an approximate 20% increase in crime activity when compared with last year. There are a variety of reasons for this increase, and as our Police Department has analyzed the data, part of the reason for the increase in crime is because of new laws that have been adopted in California. Those new laws include AB 109 and Proposition 47, and with Proposition 57 having recently been approved, an additional 10,000 incarcerated individuals will be released from prison during the next few months, which could further negatively impact crime rates.
Given the approaching holiday season, and given the increase in criminal activity, the City has developed a public safety tips event for the public that we hope you’ll participate in! The Monrovia Police Department will be leading the discussion, which has been dubbed, “Don’t Let the Grinch Ruin Christmas!”
The special event will be held on Thursday, December 8, 2016, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Library (321 South Myrtle Avenue). At the event, representatives from the Monrovia Police Department will run through different ways that you can stay safe, especially during the holiday season! In addition… we’ll have a variety of terrific special prizes that will be raffled off to event participants!
We know that there are a lot of demands on your time, especially during the holiday season! However, we hope that you will take an hour of your day to come and hear about public safety issues occurring in Monrovia and ways that you can stay safe!
