SUPPORT AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND PRESERVE HISTORIC ARCHITECTURE IN ALHAMBRA
PROJECT NO. TT-82939 & RP-19-15 (234 SOUTH MARGUERITA AVE. AND 237 SOUTH CURTIS AVE.)
We, the residents of Alhambra, oppose the demolition of existing single family homes and replacing them with oversized structures that are incompatible with the neighborhood.
A historic 1923 five-unit bungalow court on Marguerita Avenue and an adjacent 1908 historic Craftsman home on Curtis Avenue will be demolished to make way for 11 condo units. This proposed development will:
- Create overcrowding
- Increase traffic.
- Decrease street parking
- Reduce green space and trees.
- Demolish affordable housing units
- Displace families
- Intrude on the privacy of existing neighboring homes
- Destroy historic architecture that makes Alhambra unique
We urge the Planning Commission to keep the residents’ concerns in mind when making a decision on this project. Also, there should be a moratorium on ALL development until a comprehensive Historic Preservation Program is adopted.
