The proposed Arrow Highway Corridor planning area is generally bounded by the Glendora city limits on the west and east including all properties fronting Arrow Highway on the north.
In 2007, the cities of Glendora, Covina, Azusa, Baldwin Park, Irwindale, and the County of Los Angeles participated in a joint planning effort funded by the Southern California Association of Governments (or SCAG) through its Compass Blueprint Demonstration Program. The Arrow Highway Corridor study provided land use, economic, design, and implementation strategies aimed at improving the overall corridor while also creating greater connections between land use and transportation. In April, 2014, the Glendora City Council identified the Arrow Highway Specific Plan as part of the City’s Strategic Plan to enhance economic development with community involvement and allocated funding for a community planning effort targeting this corridor.
The goal of this Specific Plan is to provide policy direction regarding how the Arrow Highway Corridor area can be transformed and revitalized. A primary objective of such a plan is to provide for a transition of uses that is responsive to market forces and supports the overall economic development and livability goals of the City. The Specific Plan is to be prepared with the active involvement of residents and business owners (particularly those within and near the Arrow Highway Corridor), as well as input from the County, the City of Covina, Foothill Transit, LA County Flood Control District, and other key stakeholders.
The end objective is to create a revitalized corridor serving the community and region with a variety of land uses set in an attractive environment that creates a warm and inviting southern gateway to the City of Glendora.
One of the most important parts to the Specific Plan is public input. The preparation of the Specific Plan will be an iterative process involving drafting and refinement of the document based on public participation and comment.
