A Special Community
Incorporated in 1887, Monrovia has preserved the values of the past, yet developed a progressive version of the community's future - from its major auto center to its new mixed-use housing opportunities; from historic Old Town to a top notch Restaurant Row. You can see that Monrovians are proud of their accomplishments. Monrovia constantly boasts of being a self-contained city in which one can live, work and play. In 1995, Monrovia was named one of the five most livable places in Southern California by the Southern California Association of Governments.
Proud and Justifiably So
Why Monrovia? Monrovia is dedicated to maintaining its exceptional quality of life. The City's nationally recognized community policing program has succeeded in significantly low crime rates. Every Friday evening, Old Town Monrovia is home to one of California's largest street festivals. Monrovia's 143 acres of parks and superior recreation programs are second to none. A full service city, Monrovia is renowned for the quality and diversity of its services. In fact, Monrovia was recognized in 1995 as an All-America City by the National Civic League.
The City of Monrovia is dedicated to serving the needs of existing and new businesses. There is no utility tax and City fees are 23% below the average of other San Gabriel Valley cities. Years of commitment to quality development has given Monrovia a solid reputation with business and the development community.
Monrovia recognizes that "time is money" and strives to ease the local regulatory and processing system. A pioneer in "fast-tracking," the Monrovia Redevelopment Agency has assisted new development projects having a total value in excess of $500 million.
