Preserve Azusa’s Packing Houses
The developer, Enterprise One, Inc., plans on building 23 townhomes on the site of the historic citrus packing houses in downtown Azusa at 8th and Soldano Avenues. These packing houses represent an important part of Azusa history - the packing houses are currently listed as 8th on the Azusa Survey List of Historic Properties.
Originally the city had planned to help preserve and develop these as a local gathering place with a market and food hall. This would both preserve these buildings and become a destination point for the city, helping to garner new business, and increase sales tax revenue.
The Azusa Cultural Historic and Preservation Commission, which has not met in over 3 years, will conduct a study session on August 28, 2018.
By signing this petition, we ask the city to consider both historical designation for the packing houses and only consider projects that will preserve this important facet of Azusa’s past.
