We are doing this survey now because we are excited to launch 
a new channel, Channel 98. As you might know, Channel 3 on 
Time Warner Cable has been airing City Council and Planning 
Commission meetings, and other City government events, live 
for years and this important service will continue. But we are now 
adding Channel 98 as a commercial free, educational channel that 
will feature children’s programming, classic movies and TV shows, 
how-to shows, community special events and other interesting 
and eclectic programming relevant to our lives in Sierra Madre all 
presented without commercials and without fundraising. It is our 
channel, it is starting from scratch, and we need you to tell us what 
you want to see on it. 


Please take a few minutes to fill out this questionnaire either online 
at or drop it off at City 
Hall, Sierra Madre Library, or the Recreation Center by May 31, 
2013 and be part of creating something that will entertain and 
inform us, be unique to our special town, and make us proud. 
Thanks for the help! 

We’d like to hear from you!
