Sierra Madre: A CityConnected 
By Kelly Kriebs, Councilperson 
Mother Nature has blessed our City with much 
natural beauty, as we reap the benefits of being 
well-situated in the foothills of the San Gabriel 
mountains. Unfortunately, that same geography 
often has been a hindrance to certain conveniences 
of modern life. We have all experienced 
the frustration of dropped cell phone calls as we 
pass through various dead zones, and our remote 
corner has attracted little attention from Google,
Giggle and other internet providers as they install 
fiber optics throughout Southern California. Fortunately, the City is 
about to reap some technological bounty as well.WISTARIA

n the spring of 2021, the City Council approved plans for AT&T 
to install a cell tower on the west side of the Public Safety building 
next to City Hall. The tower is being constructed as a 60 foot stealth 
monopine (i.e., the familiar faux pine tree cell tower), which will be 
proportional with the height of the trees in the Memorial Park area.

Most importantly, it will upgrade to “reliable coverage” current areas 
of “marginally reliable coverage” in the City Hall area of downtown 
and south to Orange Grove and “unreliable coverage” in neighborhoods 
around Sierra Madre Elementary School. Construction is expected 
to be completed in April. 
The first work 
day for the Sierra 
Madre Post Office 
project was on 
Sunday, March 
20th and it was a 
huge success. A 
number of volunteers 
up and the 
original plants 
were removed. 
Thanks to a generous 
of a roll-off container by Mr. Ed Chen at Athens Services, all the 
cut vegetation was transported to be ground up and recycled into 
mulch. The round concrete “pads” that were in the old vegetation 
were offered up on the internet and given away to people who 
could use them. 
The project continues to raise money and it is just about half wayfunded. FormLA, the landscape design firm that designed the
