Will Obama Sign National Monument Order Friday in San Dimas?

According to a press release from Arturo Alas, who is running for Congress in the 32nd District (which includes most of Monrovia), "President Obama is reportedly coming to Bonelli Park in San Dimas, CA on Friday, October 10th in order to sign the National Monument proposal." This would make the San Gabriel Mountains a National Monument.

The press release adds that "Individuals and businesses from the community plan to make an appearance in order to reinforce the importance of their concerns and make known their opposition to the plan."

Comment: Hmm. That "reportedly" makes me a bit doubtful...

Update: More on Obama declaring San Gabriel Mountains a National Monument. Still unconfirmed, though.

  1. Star News has an article about it. Disappointed that the people who live in the area weren't given a vote on deciding their future especially since Monrovia bought the preserve using taxpayer money. I assume we the taxpayers of Monrovia will still be paying for the bond but the land will belong to the feds.
