Monrovia Hillside Recreation/Preservation Area May Open in January
I am curious about what is happening about opening up the Hillside area (the preservation/recreation area the city purchased in the foothills), so I asked Monrovia's Director of Community Services, April Soash. Some questions and answers:
So, what's up with the Hillside area?
Currently staff is working with contractors to design the signage and gates for the various access points. The official opening of the access points will be once the gates and signage are in place. The timeline for the signage is approximately September for the design phase to be completed, then the signs will go into production. Each access point will be opened when all the work is completed, so some may open sooner than others.
Will the signs just be at the trailheads or will there be signs at various points on the streets directing people to the trailheads?
Per the minimalist plan adopted by city council the signs will only be located at each one of the access points/trailheads and along the trail where necessary to note information on the endangered species of Braunton’s Milk Vetch.
Roughly how long after the signs are designed will they be manufactured and installed?
Staff is estimating by January 2013 everything will be in place.
Is any parking being added (or subtracted - by posting No Parking signs) around the trailheads?
The City Council adopted the minimalist plan which did not include any new parking and it did not include any directive for no parking signs.
