Monrovia City Council to Consider PetSmart

Monrovia City staff is recommending that the City Council approve a proposed PetSmart store at its Tuesday meeting. The store - which would be located at at 745 W. Huntington Drive - was challenged at a Planning Commission meeting by local vets.
City Manager Scott Ochoa writes: "At the Planning Commission, testimony was received from local veterinarians regarding the impact that these ancillary services would have on their businesses. Still, the use is allowed on the property and the City is precluded from unjustifiably denying such a seemingly consistent and compliant application."
Assuming it is approved, "the proposed PetSmart will assume the entire 25,000-square-foot retail store, and will also include pet boarding and veterinary services. These ancillary uses, contained within the PetSmart, are allowed by the zoning through a conditional use permit."

  1. I cann't hardly wait to have a PetsMart in Monrovia. After all, even if they have veterinary services in there, I will continue to go to my regular Vet who happens to be in Pasadena.

  2. I would love to have the Petsmart in our neighborhood. It would not be any different than allowing any large retail store to pull up stakes.
