For your convenience you may read the City Council Agenda for Tuesday 27, 2011.
In particular the options being considered regarding the low-income housing project are listed.
The lack of vision is apparent even in the details. One of them is even increasing the Housing
Authority's subsidy by millions.
Please feel free to voice your opinions on this site we look forward to creating a dialogue
between the community. It is the sole reason for this websites existence. To give YOU
the community a voice on both sides of the issues.

The Duarte City Council has approved the construction of a 66 unit low-income housing project on Huntington Drive, our main thoroughfare and home to the Historic Route 66. This project will drive businesses out of our city and effectively kill the dream of a downtown Duarte. I need your support to help defend the vision of a Duarte where we can live, work AND play. I need your support to defend the vision of a downtown Duarte.
Join us this Wednesday to STOP this project and protect this vision!
Wednesday, September 19 @ 7:00 P.M.

CPUC Responds to Sen. Hernandez Letter on Duarte
Concerns Over Construction of Towers Near Homes
DUARTE, CA, August 25, 2011 – While the City of Duarte continues to pursue every avenue to secure relief and mitigation in regard to the impact on the community over Southern California Edison’s Tehachapi Transmission Project, the California Public Utilities Commission has once again dismissed Duarte concerns, this time in a response letter to State Senator Ed Hernandez (24th Senate District).

I approve of housing for the working class, there is a real need for affordable housing for the workforce. Especially this type of housing. I have been an advocate of affordable housing for years. Our local families and children continue to move to other areas, due to the cost of shelter. This type of housing is desperately needed. However, not at this location. This will make it even more difficult for us to ever develop a Town-Center. It will change the economics of any Town-Center project, and make it more expensive and possible unachievable or an unrealistic goal.
