MY VISION FOR THE DOWNTOWN
As chairman to oversight committee, myself & other boardmember have fought to get properties back from the state. The loss of redevlopment 6 years ago was costly, not only to AZUSA,but all ciites in California. Properties were not being developed for lack of vision or desire, but because of litigations with the state. As October 2015 We now able to move forward with these long awaited projects. Block 36 will be my priority to complete with my next 4 year term. Our council has worked hard to work together to maintain a level of professionalism that seperates us from other cities in San Gabriel Valley, we are now the envy of other cities!! There is more to do,we will continue to work hard listening to our residents & trying to agree on more, then we disagree on issues.Now on block 36 (azusa ave/ foothill) & block 37 (san gabriel/ foothill) We will have 2 projects, after much debate to conversation , council worked hard to deliver both projects SERRANO GROUP as well as CHARLES CO projects. which consist both a LAEMMLE theatre & BOWLING concept. We are excited to have both in downtown!
