  1. I think Grand Avenue Park needs auto motion lights and a webcam for the Monrovia PD. It is a gang hang out, it is being tagged by graffiti weekly, items are being burned, homeless people sleep there, drugs and alcohol paraphernalia are often found there. It is very dark, with many bushes to hang out and hide in. Most of the park cannot be seen during a drive by from the Monrovia Police. What are we waiting for? Something terrible to happen?

  2. The parks are doing fine. How about some sidewalks on the east side of town? As Monrovians become more pedestrian in their exercise routines, the lack of sidewalks in some areas is just plain dangerous. Just try crossing Mountain Ave or using "sidewalks" on Mountain-adjacent streets, especially between Foothill and Lemon. As my wife and I have found, pedestrians are nuisances barely tolerated. Over 50% of vehicles don't stop for us at the intersection of Mountain and Wildrose.Glendale is ticketing motorists like crazy to increase revenue. I suggest Monrovia do the same just to provide a safe environment for pedestrians. When the 210 is jammed, Mountain and Foothill are the relief zones. Except from Mountain to Huntington it becomes a speedway!
