Tuesday night's Monrovia City Council meeting:
~ The Monrovia City Council wants to determine if the residents in the first couple blocks north of Foothill on Encinitas want to be part of an historical district. The issue came during an appeal to block the demolition of a house at 256 N. Encinitas. (The appeal was tabled until Feb. 17)
~ A Monrovia resident (me) said he was concerned that progress in opening the Cloverleaf entrance to the Hillside Wilderness area to hikers and bicyclists "could again slip between the cracks and be forgotten." City Manager Oliver Chi promised it would not slip between the cracks and said he hoped the issue would be resolved within the next several months. He said the city is contacting property owners to negotiate access to the trail.
