Why this petition matters

Started by Temple City Residents for Better Living

​Did you know that a massive low-income housing project is currently being proposed in our neighborhood that will have a negative impact on the residents of Temple City? The project calls for 171 units for the "formerly homeless" and veterans at the site of the Golden Motel at 6343-6359 Rosemead Blvd, across the street from the ValuMart in the city of San Gabriel.

If we don't take action to stop this project now, Temple City residents and families will face increased traffic, added population density and plummeting property values. Without a doubt this project will adversely affect our community, families, and nearby schools. There are at least five schools, preschools and a learning center in a one mile radius of this project.

The planners are proposing construction to start in January of 2018! Now is the time to speak up and take action before it is too late. The future of our community is at stake. Please sign our petition to make your voices heard by our city leaders. 

​***GET INVOLVED: A very important public hearing with the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission has been pushed to WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21st, 2017 at 9:00 AM at the Hall of Records in downtown Los Angeles (320 W. Temple St. Room 150).

During the May 16th City Council meeting, Greg Murphy from the City Attorney's office said that the date was pushed back because of the utter lack of public outreach, insufficient studies of impact to the community and lack of information given to the public by the County Planning Division and Mercy Housing. Most people only heard about the project less than a month ago. Murphy goes on to say that to date there is no real substantial information or facts about the project. They believe that the Mercy project was rushed forward and has left everyone in the dark, thus the public outcry. It is extremely important that we ALL attend the June 21st meeting as it will be before the LA County Regional Planning Commission, who are the decision makers for this project.
