It is my honor to have been elected by my fellow Councilmembers to serve as the president of the Crescenta Valley Town Council this year. We have twelve members (nine regular and three alternate) that are willing to donate multiple volunteer hours for the unincorporated areas of Montrose and La Crescenta.
Events that the Council is currently working on include moving our monthly public meetings to a larger room to accommodate our constituents. On Feb. 15, our first meeting was held at Crescenta Valley High School's Career Center located at 2900 Community Avenue. Scheduled for that meeting was a presentation of the proposed 710 freeway tunnel by Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Additionally, the Council is working on making the public meetings more concise.
Also new to our Feb. 15 meeting was the addition of a student council representative from C.V. High School. Meeting the needs of our teens is important to us and we would like to hear from the future generation.
