At its next meeting (agenda: the Monrovia City Council will consider ...

~ Appointment of new city manager. See here:

~ Creating a "Planned Development Area" for 525 (Monrovia Market) and 721 (Flying A gasoline station) South Shamrock Ave. The purpose is to preserve and restore the Route 66 properties by "allowing uses that require minimal change to the character defining features of the building and its site environment; promote the long-term economic viability of the properties; identify and permit uses that will be compatible with the surrounding residential neighborhood."


~ Grant historical status to  168 North Encinitas Ave. (, a Craftsman Bungalow style home built in 1912; and to 324 West Palm Ave. (, a folk Victorian home.

  1. Does this mean they will preserve the Gas Station as is? I sure hope so. It is iconic of the era and could be repurposed quite nicely as a cafe, shops or other interesting ideas. Is the Monrovia Historical Society working to Preserve and refunction the property? Hope so.
