Monrovia Considering Park Smoking Ban; Bike and Hike Day; Transit to Trains

A few items from City Manager Oliver Chi's weekly report ...

~ Monrovia is thinking of banning smoking in its parks. Here are the unadopted minutes of a Community Services Commission subcommitte evaluating a potential ban on smoking in public parks.

~ Monrovia and other San Gabriel Valley are planning an "Open Streets" event "to promote walking, biking, public health, awareness of alternative modes of transportation, community connections, economic development, zero-emissions transportation." The event is proposed for June 26, 2016, from 8 a.m. to p.m. along a 17-mile route and linking all the Gold Line stations from South Pasadena to Azusa.

~ Monrovia, Duarte and Covina, are together asking for proposals to handle transportation within the cities to and from the new Metro train station.

  1. Banning smoking in parks is a great weapon to getting rid of our park squatters. I have little faith that it will actually get implemented, but crossing my fingers.
