County Awards Monrovia $250,000 Grant For Julian Fisher Park Improvements

A grant from the Los Angeles County Regional Parks and Open Space District will help fund improvements to the park on California Avenue.

Monrovia has been awarded a $250,000 county grant for improvements to Julian Fisher Park, Councilwoman Becky Shevlin said.

The grant from the Los Angeles County Regional Parks and Open Space District will be used to address a "laundry list" of potential renovations needed at the park, Shevlin said.

"It is a great start and we're going to continue to go out and find ways to fund improvements," she said.

Shevlin said the city hasn't yet determined exactly what improvements to make. The City Council recently discussed the need for new playground equipment at the park, which Shevlin said could cost $350,000.

Renovations to the park have been on the city's list of open space priorities for years.

Sus palabras son rational, Sr Cruz. Por que estes gentes que ganana sus salaries do mas que $140,000 por ano no saben? no pueden ver la futura? Tal vez Sr Crandall y su amiga van a mostrar are los get qui toman tanto dinero a trabajar para este ciudad y hacen nada pero pagando la policia a hacer terror en los pobres, las damas, chicas, y chicos do Monrovia. City Hall boy Adams has some real estate in them thar hills, so do his friends. They are infect this city with fascism.

Look up the names of the 'people' who publish monrovia weakly. then go to propertyshark.com and see how much real estate they own. then notice what a racist rag the Monrovia Weakly is. They ID traffic stop victims by RACE. But not the White ones. Just the blacks and the mexicans. Yeah, cop car #22, you almost ran an old lady down on Myrtle. And 43? You're a funny little man.

KAJ, we can VOTE to get rid of the RED PESTs. I hate commies and I know what collectivism was, I know what a Bolshivik was. I depart this city as soon as I can. Like, next WEEK. I have seen enough to go on NPR. Gun toting thugs in tight uniforms. MPD. Shootings in Monrovia? Not in Arcadia? Figure it out, sheeple. The po-po are twsited in Monrovia. Upton Sinclair would send himself to Chicago for mercy if he knew.
