In fact, about 850 residents attended a Monday night Planning Commission meeting regarding the project, which still would have to pass through many city approval hoops to begin construction. Regarding the Rusnak expansion, Chandler said, “The \ is one of Arcadia leading sales-tax producers and as such they provide a significant amount of money each year to the city’s General Fund, which is what pays for almost all municipal services, including public safety.” Chandler believes the expansion should continue despite the efforts of a restaurant owner who placed a measure on an upcoming ballot restricting it. The council is expected to review the Westfield mall expansion project on April 3, he said. [email protected] ARCADIA – Characterizing Arcadia as “well-off and friendly,” Mayor Roger Chandler outlined a “Pick 6” of major areas in which he says the city progressed last year in his annual State of the City address Tuesday evening. “As was said so often during our centenial year,” Chandler said, before a scant Council Chamber audience, “we are a community that values its past, appreciates its present and eagerly awaits a very bright future.” The controversial The Shops at Santa Anita project topped Chandler’s list and was followed by comments on the Westfield mall and the Rusnak Mercedes dealership expansions, City Hall and Civic Center Plaza plans, the Gold Line extension and a new gymnasium at Foothill Middle School. Of the Shops development, Chandler said, “This project has probably caused the most community conversation in the last year. The review by the Planning Commission and City Council will continue with an eye for what is in the best interests of the this community and the people who live here.” (626) 578-6300 Ext. 4461 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
