Preservation / Giving / Santa

270 N Myrtle

Historic Preservation ~ This Wednesday the Historic Preservation Commission will discuss the house at 270 N. Myrtle Avenue, described by City Manager Scott Ochoa as "a smallish Queen Anne/Craftsman/Spanish bungalow."

In his weekly report, Ochoa writes: "It seems that the new owners of the property will agree to keep and preserve the original portion of the existing house (the Queen Anne), while expanding and upgrading portions of it. In exchange, the HPC and the Planning Commission would approve necessary minor exceptions to the Code (in order to set the house and the addition appropriately on the lot). I don't think anyone is entirely happy, but sometimes that is the best sign of a good compromise."

City Employees Give to Community ~ Ochoa writes that Monrovia Municipal Employees' Association (MMEA) typically donates to the Unity Center or does other good works around the holidays, but this holiday season and next year, he says, MMEA will go further and perform "a host of community volunteer projects and efforts," starting with a food drive to complement the volunteer time and resources they donate to the Unity Center.
"In consultation with the board," Ochoa writes, "I am hopeful that they will be agreeable to allowing the Management Team to come alongside of them, and that the police officers' and firefighters' unions will want to partner up on a diverse array of community projects and programs as well."

Santa at Library ~ Toddlers and preschool children are invited to the Library on Tuesday, December 7 and Wednesday, December 8 at 10:45 a.m. for a Santa story time featuring holiday story, songs, and snacks. A very special guest will make a cameo appearance at the end of the show - jolly old St. Nicholas himself!
