Sometime in the future, the Monrovia City Council will be reviewing the draft of the Citywide Historic Context Statement. In the meantime, the draft is available for review on the city website. Go to and use the search button to enter “Historic Context Statement.” A list of connections will appear, click on the first and then on the statement itself.
The statement is complete and complex. And it is long. The 280-page document is detailed and among other things suggests 14 potential historic districts to add to the two the city already has. It discusses the growth of city in many ways, by time period, by type (i.e. businesses, residential, industrial, etc.) and through themes such as ethnic/cultural, by architectural style and time period, etc. It is slow reading, but worth the effort
