The Dying Cork Oak Tree at Library Park (Just East of the Fountain) Will Be Removed on Thursday, April 19, 2018

We wanted to let everyone know that this coming Thursday, April 19, 2018, at 5:00 a.m., the City will be removing the dead cork oak tree located at Library Park, just north of the fountain. As you may recall, that particular tree has fallen prey to a beetle infestation and must now be taken down.

Although we are sad to see such a great tree pass on, we are happy to report that the Youth Commission and the Teen Advisory Board will be replacing the tree with two Coastal Oaks on Arbor Day, April 26, 2018, at 4:00 p.m. One Coastal Oak will be located where the Cork Oak was removed, while the other will be planted across the walkway on the south side of the fountain. We will continue to keep everyone informed as to our progress in addressing this situation, and if you have any questions, please feel free to call our Public Works Division at (626) 932-5575.

Construction Happening the Week of April 16, 2018

Throughout the last two weeks, Sully-Miller completed most of the street construction work on Highland Place, Mayflower Avenue, Primrose Avenue, Linwood Avenue, Palm Avenue, and parts of Lemon and Lime Avenues.

  • Paving on Lemon and Lime Avenue: There is some final cap paving that needs to be completed along Lemon Avenue and Lime Avenue. This work will commence on Monday, April 16, and should be completed within two days.
  •  Striping of Lanes, Crosswalks, and Stops: The striping contractor will begin laying out and installing roadway marking beginning Monday, April 16, and will take approximately two weeks to complete. This work includes the installation of all necessary lane markings, cross walks, stop indicators, and other striping. In addition, this will also include the replacement of all address numbers that were removed from curbs as part of construction.
  • Final Clean-Up Work: Construction crews will begin working on final "punch list" items or things that need to be fixed, modified, or cleaned up prior to the City accepting the work and closing out the Northwest Section. Included in these items will be the repairing of irrigation and other work in parkways, cleaning up any construction debris, and repairing any improvements that were not constructed to the City's standard.
  • Anticipated Completion in May: Northwest work is nearing completion and it is anticipated that Sully-Miller Contracting Co. will be demobilized and out of town during the first week or so of May.

During these construction activities, there will be intermittent road closures and parking restrictions. The streets and driveways will be accessible every night; however, access might be limited during daytime work activities.

We appreciate your patience and support while we work to execute these improvements throughout our community! If you have any questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact Public Works at (626) 932-5575 or

  • Initial Notice - All residents and businesses in the construction area to inform them of pending work.
  • Five Day Notice - Specific notices will be delivered to the impacted areas five (5) days prior to work commencing. This notice will outline the work taking place, overview the schedule, and provide information on the associated impacts, such as parking restrictions or driveway access.
  • Two Day Notice - A final notice will be provided two days before the activity begins to remind folks of the coming work and impacts.

As the work in this section progresses, we will be sure to keep you updated on any developments. As always, we thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to execute this project.
