Neighborhood Recognition

Monrovia City Staff, Neighborhood Leaders and multiple other residents deserve a heartfelt thanks and pat on the back for their above and beyond efforts to make Sherman Avenue and the surrounding area a thriving neighborhood; a big change from several years back.

This change did not come though a passive effort, but one with much intention. Residents enrolled in the MAP Leadership Academy to learn how to create community change, Monrovia's Community Service Department created after school recreation and learning opportunities on the street with the Monrovia Reads & Plays van, innovative law enforcement tactics were implemented by the Monrovia Police Department, Public Works was diligent of ridding the neighborhood of graffiti and other crime elements, MAP Neighborhood Leaders, together with Neighborhood Services and the MAP team hosted a Potluck & Movie Night on the street, Code Enforcement worked closely with residents to rid the street of blight and City Officials kept an open ear to the residents and staff working in the area, ready to respond at all times.
The Sherman Avenue Neighborhood was given this award because of the tremendous team effort put forth. Thank you, and Congratulations to all who were involved. This is the kind of change that happens only when we all work together, and that's what being part of the Monrovia Area Partnership is all about.
