[ARCHIVED] Town Hall Meeting to Discuss New Monterey Park Sidewalk Improvement and Safety Program

News Release graphic image

Are you tired of navigating through sidewalks that have been slightly lifted by trees? Do you want to improve the accessibility of your community while also supporting the growth of local businesses?  

Join the City of Monterey Park for a town hall meeting at El Encanto on Monday, May 15, 2023 at 10 a.m. to discuss the city’s new Sidewalk Improvement and Safety Program. This program will benefit businesses by improving accessibility for their customers and employees. It will also allow replacing existing Ficus trees that have caused sidewalk damage through the years and replace them with more vibrant and less intrusive trees.  

Numerous studies have shown that good pedestrian sidewalk connectivity and walkability positively impact businesses. Safe and walkable sidewalks increase property values, are essential to a thriving business environment, and are crucial corridors for people, goods, and commerce.  

This meeting will allow business owners and community members to learn more about the program, ask questions, and provide feedback to city officials. Your input is crucial in making sure this program meets the needs of everyone in our community.  

Don’t miss out on this chance to make Monterey Park a safer and more accessible place for all. Join us at the town hall meeting and let your voice be heard.  

  • What: Monterey Park Sidewalk Improvement and Safety Program Town Hall Meeting.
  • When: Monday, May 15, 2023, 10 a.m.
  • Where: El Encanto, 700 El Mercado Avenue, Monterey Park, CA 91754.
