~ Aldi Supermarket and TJ Maxx / Homegoods are tentatively set to locate in the former Albertson's Shopping Center. The Development Review Committee formally approved a facade remodel for the shopping center, which is being rebranded and renamed to be called, "Monrovia Landing." The Michael's store will move over next to O'Reilly Auto Parts.
~ Worley Parsons, the international engineering firm, will close its Arcadia facilities and move everybody to its Monrovia offices at 181 West Huntington. This means 300-400 more people who will work, dine, and shop while in town.
~ Starting Dec. 5, roadwork here:
Cherry Avenue - from Alta Vista to Myrtle
Chestnut Avenue - from Monterey to Myrtle
Cypress Avenue - from Alta Vista to Myrtle
Highway Esplanade - from Huntington to Chestnut
King Street - from Monterey to Mayflower
Maple Avenue - from Mayflower to Primrose
Montana Street - from Magnolia to Myrtle
Olive Avenue - from Mayflower to the western end of the cul-de-sac
Primrose Avenue - from Huntington to Central
Walnut Avenue - from Mayflower to Myrtle
~ This Friday, Dec. 2, from 6 to 8 p.m., as part of the street fair, there will be free family portraits at Charlie's House in Old Town (430 S. Myrtle Ave.).
