Property History: In 2016 Monrovia City Council agreed to annex the parcels involved in the Bradbury Rd Widening Project to Bradbury. At the August 2, 2016 City Council meeting, City Council asked that Bradbury agree to refrain from developing the annexed property as part of the agreement. Monrovia city attorney recommended to enforce an easement to protect the area from being developed. The 2 stipulations were requested to be included in the agreement with Bradbury before approval. The concern was that if the area was ever developed it would impact Monrovia residents living across the street from the parcels. The agreement was put together by city staff without the above stipulations. Bradbury recently approved the development of the property annexed from Monrovia which will lead to the destruction of a wildlife corridor, destruction of a protected oak woodland, remove the canopy that makes up one of very few shaded streets in East Monrovia and create an eye sore for Monrovia residents.

Project Overview: On Tuesday, November 15, 2022 the City of Bradbury City Council will decide whether to approve the Bradbury Roadway Widening Project. The proposed Project would widen the existing Bradbury Road roadway from 24 feet to 36 feet providing one 18-foot lane in each direction. The road widening would extend beyond the north side of the existing roadway limits of Wildrose Avenue and beyond the east side of the existing roadway limits of Bradbury Road. Substantial grading would be required along the slope to the north of Wildrose Avenue. Several oak trees would be removed as part of grading activity. A permanent retaining wall would be constructed between the roadway and the newly graded area. The retaining wall would be approximately 320 feet in length and would range from 5 to 13 feet in height above the top of the slope top of the Bradbury Road curb elevation. The Project would include removal of 270 linear feet of existing berm, 390 linear feet of existing hedge, and up to 46 trees (Many of which are oak trees).
