The 10th Annual Monrovia Area Partnership (MAP) Neighborhood Conference will be taking place on Saturday, April 6, at Second Baptist Church. The address is 925 S. Shamrock Ave., Monrovia, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The event is free and is open to all residents and the entire community, and hope that you think about participating in this signature community event.

The MAP Neighborhood Conference is designed to provide residents and MAP participants with information about important topics occurring in Monrovia. MAP’s goal is to provide residents with the tools they need to help shape the City into the type of community they want to live in.  To that end, they provide a variety of conference breakout sessions this year, including:

  • Information about the Neighborhood Treasures program.
  • Reviewing upcoming development projects in Monrovia.
  • De-escalation simulations with the Monrovia PD.
  • Celebrating Monrovia’s rich history.
  • Active shooter training.
  • Monrovia renewal infrastructure project updates.
  • And much more.

In addition to the sessions that have been developed, the City will also be providing a free lunch, donated by supportive local restaurants including Wendy’s, Jersey Mike’s, and Tommy Burgers.  After lunch, key note speaker, Michael Pointer, Sr will be featured. There will also be health screenings and an information fair, including various screenings and information from local organizations: Baldwin Park Housing Authority, City Departments, Volunteer Center of San Gabriel Valley, and Farm Fresh to You, to name a few. There will also be raffling of some great prizes.

MAP invites everyone to participate in this event they combine each of their life experiences and celebrate community neighborhoods together.

In addition, you can follow MAP on Facebook, contact City staff for more information via email, or (626) 932-5563 by phone.
