City Council to Consider Streamlining Housing Development Process; Charge Developers More to Minimize Traffic Impact

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

~ Streamlining the review of multi-family residential developments, as required by state law. The proposal would eliminate the conditional use permit requirement in zones that allow multi-family developments, and get rid of the requirement for some projects to be reviewed by the city's Development Review Committee. Details.

~ Increasing the amount it charges developers to minimize the traffic impact of their developments. City staff recommends increasing the Traffic Impact Fee to "$2,575 per net new afternoon peak hour trip." Details

  1. Charging money is not going to improve traffic. Only not building multi unit housing will prevent congestion. I've lived here all my life and it's trying to become Pasadena, which is not good.
