Sign of the Times

sign of the times

This old sign of the southwest corner for Huntington and Myrtle reads: “ When the economy is at its worst, we are at our Best….The Monrovia Redevelopment Agency is hard at work…” The city of Monrovia would love to be doing more but their quest was quashed. However, it should be noted that the state of California has taken away Monrovia’s RDA money as in every other city in California too. Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed 2011-12 budget found $2.7 billion in savings from disbanding redevelopment agencies and ending enterprise zones. AFCSME, which represents thousands of state workers, applauded Brown’s proposal to “eliminate the ineffective enterprise zone program and to end redevelopment subsidies statewide.” But Brown’s plan had already been described by Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa as a “non-starter,” and several cities sued the California Redevelopment Association to stop the cuts. As Redevelopment Agencies statewide mobilized to protect their money the courts saw differ¬ently and the state ultimately won. Meanwhile, a candidate decided this would be a good place to sell his congressional bid. -Photo by Terry Miller
