Happy New Year 
to our foothill 

The sunny 
crispness of 
winter is my 
favorite time 
of year, and 
the season of 
gratitude lingers 
as I enjoy a 
bright and 
sparkling Sierra 
Madre after the 
rain this week. 

What I am particularly thankful for is the community 
spirit that was on full display during the holiday 
season. We started with a wildly successful Winterfest 
thanks to our Chamber of Commerce and ended 
with the Queen’s Trophy in reward of the thousands 
of hours spent creating the Sierra Madre Rose Float 
Association’s 2023 Rose Parade entry. 

In between, we enjoyed many festive events and the 
holiday decorations and tree and menorah lighting 
ceremonies, all provided by dedicated local volunteers. 
If you are similarly grateful for all of these Sierra 
Madre festivities (and the many others throughout the 
year), please consider joining the best community of 
volunteers. There were many volunteer opportunities 
listed in last week’s edition of this newspaper and the 
City will have openings on its commissions later this 

Preservation of this community spirit by maintaining 
and enhancing the City’s programming, upgrading 
City facilities and infrastructure, and encouraging 
stronger partnerships with our business and school 
communities are my (mayoral) New Year’s resolutions. 

We already are full-steam ahead on many projects 
turning these resolutions into reality. Our Sierra 
Madre Library improvement project has reached a 
new phase with the opening of the temporary library 
on Monday, January 8th. 

The Sierra Vista Park playground is being replaced 
and new exercise equipment is being installed. We 
have two water main replacement projects planned for 
this year, as well as street improvements. There also 
will be exciting happenings in our downtown and in 
partnership with our schools and YMCA – watch this 
space for news of those! 

All of these goals are a continuation of the priorities 
set by many past City Councils and conceived and 
implemented by dedicated City staff. I am proud and 
excited to have the opportunity to build upon the 
strong foundation we have laid and to contribute to 
the small town we all love. 

~ Mayor Kelly Kriebs
