 Why?

To pay for continued and increasing costs pushed onto the City by the Federal and State Government

 

 What happens if Bradbury can’t remain an independent city?

We could …

  • become a minor neighborhood of Duarte or Monrovia;
  • be given to LA County as an unincorporated area, faceless and without representation; or
  • be handed a fate determined solely by Sacramento.

 

Do you want to keep local control?

      ü  Local control means power over services and standards of your community

ü  Ensures tax money goes directly to your community

ü  Ensures the needs of your community are met and addressed at City Hall 

ü  Ability to call City Hall for code enforcement concerns

ü  Ability to get building permits at City Hall instead of downtown LA

ü  Preserves your property values

ü  Maintains decisions about land use policy here by your local City Council and not in downtown Los Angeles

The bottom line - let’s find a solution together & preserve the uniqueness of Bradbury.
