From the desk of Monrovia's City Manager



As the City prepares to consider several large-scale development projects, one housing note that we wanted 
to share with everyone relates to the impact that recent State legislation has had on our local land use controls 
as it relates to housing development. As you may recall, in 2017 and in 2018, the State approved a series of 
legislative amendments to the Housing Accountability Act (HAA), which combined has reduced local government 
authority to deny or reduce the density of proposed housing development projects.

To highlight how those pieces of legislation impact a municipality’s ability to regulate development, a full 
memo on the matter can be found online. In particular, I wanted to highlight some of the key changes that 
staff is currently grappling with:

The new regulations adopted by the State stipulate that if a project conforms to a City’s applicable development 
standards (i.e., no variances or exceptions are sought), it will be extremely difficult for the City to legally 
deny any housing project.

Furthermore, while a City can still institute a design and neighborhood compatibility review process, the 
City essentially now cannot deny a housing development project, or impose conditions that the project be 
developed at a lower density, unless strict findings can be identified which indicate that a project would have 
a specific, adverse impact on public health or safety.

Again, a memo outlining all of the new State mandated housing development regulations that we are contending 
with can be found online.


On Sat., September 21 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Duarte will hold its bi-annual Community Clean-up Day at both 
Duarte City Hall (1600 Huntington Dr.) and Beardslee Elementary School (1212 Kelwill Way). Residents can

The City Hall location will also be hosting several other programs that day including a free Compost Giveaway, 
Shred Event, and Household Hazardous Waste Collection. The Compost Giveaway is a self-serve event,

available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Shred Event will be accepting bank statements, old pay stubs, 
credit card applications, old papers with personal information. No binders please. For more information on 
the clean-up and/or please contact Burrtec Waste Services at (626) 932-1558.

The County of Los Angeles will also be sponsoring a Household Hazardous & E-waste Collection Event from

with acid or lye, pesticides or herbicides, household batteries and car batteries, pool chemicals, motor oil, oil

hypodermic needles, pen needles, syringes, lancets, and intravenous needles too. Bring items in a sturdy box, 
(preferably in their original labeled containers), and be sure not to mix items together. There is a limit of 15 
gallons or 125 pounds of hazardous waste per trip and be prepared to leave your containers and boxes. Please
