MAP's 10th Anniversary Party

Some History: The Monrovia Area Partnership program was initiated in 2006. This year marks our 10th Anniversary of City staff partnering with our residents, businesses and local service organizations to build Community by decreasing crime, blight, and resident apathy by encouraging civic engagement. The “Kick-Off” of the MAP program was focused in one of our neighborhoods – MAP Area #1 where (at the time) there was a significant increase in crime, blight and resident apathy.  In an effort to assess resident needs and gain trust, block parties were held in this neighborhood.  The block parties were affectionately titled “Hot Dogs, Hot Links and Hot Topics”. They allowed for residents to safely and comfortably meet with and get to know City staff and to interact with their neighbors again.   Feedback from those block parties helped to form the MAP program into the citywide program and philosophy that we have today of Partnering Together for a Better Monrovia.

What better way to celebrate MAP’s 10th Anniversary than to go back to where it all began – A block party in MAP Area #1.

MAP will be having a block party at Julian Fisher Park on Saturday, July 9, the same night we have a scheduled movie night in our Summer Night Movie Series. This block party will be a celebration for all of our departments, partners, MAP Leaders, family, friends and residents of the city. The Celebration will include the following;
• Free (Beef) Hot Dogs, (Pork) Hot Links
• Free Popcorn
• City booths available to advertise upcoming programming
• Community Partners who support MAP
• Activities for kids and families
• Movie Night (Hotel Transylvania 2)
