Monrovia Sale of Land to Gold Line May Face Big Delay

The sale of Monrovia land to the Gold Line for a maintenance facility has been delayed yet again - possibly until January unless the State Supreme Court can be persuaded to modify a ban it has imposed.

In his weekly report ( ), Monrovia City Manager Scott Ochoa said there was a delay in approving the sale when the State abolished redevelopment agencies, so the city had to wait until the Monrovia Redevelopment Agency could be reconstituted (after agreeing to pay a "ransom" to the state of more than a million dollars), but now that that has occurred, the Supreme Court has forbidden the agencies from getting rid of their assets during the court challenge to the state's new redevelopment law.

So, Monrovia can't sell the property, unless, Ochoa said, the court agrees to modify its order. Hopefully the court will rule on that question this week.
