California is known for its colorful citrus trees, and taking proper care of them is important to ensure these trees stay healthy and fruitful for years to come. In addition to watering, pruning and fertilizing your citrus tree this spring, be sure to inspect your trees for signs of a dangerous pest called the Asian citrus psyllid and deadly citrus tree disease called Huanglongbing (HLB). The pest can spread the disease as it feeds on citrus tree leaves. HLB is not dangerous to humans or pets, but it is fatal for citrus trees and has no cure. For more information, please visit CaliforniaCitrusThreat.org.
What is Neighborhood Watch?
The Montebello Police Department believes in community policing. The department strives to work with the community to prevent and report crime and improve quality of life. The Neighborhood Watch program helps to accomplish that goal by creating better communication between the police department and the community they serve. This allows the police department to better listen to the concerns of the community and create long term solutions to problems. This is done by utilizing resources from the Police Department and other city departments such as Code Enforcement, the Building Department, the Planning Department and numerous other community groups. Neighborhood Watch also enables the Police Department to share information with the community about how they can prevent crime and be prepared for emergencies.
Want to Start a Neighborhood Watch? Get Started in 5 Easy Steps.
1. We’re here to help. Contact the Montebello Community Relations Unit (CRU) to schedule a meeting and learn about starting a Neighborhood Watch. The CRU can be reached at (323) 887-1342. An officer will help you plan your first meeting and conduct a presentation to teach your neighborhood about crime prevention, communication in your neighborhood and how to report suspicious activity in your area.
2. Come up with a date, time and location for your first meeting. Consider the weather and make sure the meeting place is accessible to people with disabilities.
3. Time to talk to your neighbors. The CRU can provide a flyer to distribute in your neighborhood with details for your first meeting. Try to get names, phone numbers and emails to start getting everyone connected.
4. Meeting time. Get to know your neighbors and discuss your concerns. Prioritize your concerns and come up with plans to address them. Determine how you want to stay connected with your neighbors for future communication.
5. Keep it going. Schedule regular meetings to discuss new concerns and talk about the progress on other issues. The CRU will always be happy to attend and provide guidance on any neighborhood issues you have.

Metro is studying Light Rail Transit (LRT) alternatives to extend the existing Metro Gold Line Eastside Extension (MGLEE) from its current terminus at Atlantic Station in East Los Angeles into eastern Los Angeles County.
Based on the findings from the Technical Study, the Board approved the updated Project Definition to include three (3) Build Alternatives:
- SR 60 NSDV LRT Alternative
- Washington Boulevard LRT Alternative – Atlantic Below-Grade Concept
- Combined Concept
Upon completion of the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Draft EIS/EIR in 2014, the Metro Board of Directors directed staff to undertake a Technical Study to:
Conduct additional technical investigation to address major areas of concern raised by Cooperating Agencies, corridor cities and stakeholders;
Identify of a new north-south connection for the Washington Boulevard LRT Alternative and;
Explore the feasibility of operating both the SR 60 LRT and Washington Boulevard LRT Alternatives.
In May 2017, the Metro Board approved the updated project definition upon receiving the completed Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Technical Study. The study addressed issues identified in the November 2014 Board Motion, which the Metro Board of Directors passed subsequent to the release of the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIS/EIR).
Board Members John Fasana , Hilda Solis and Janice Hahn also introduced a motion directing staff to explore the possibility of accelerating construction of both alignments upon conclusion of the Environmental phase.
Metro will further study the three LRT alternatives in a revised/supplemental Draft EIS/EIR. This phase will include additional environmental analysis and coordination with third party agencies, engineering analysis and refinements, and continued outreach to key stakeholders and communities. Metro staff will continue providing project updates to communities in the study area, stakeholder groups and cooperating resource agencies.
MONTEBELLO-ASHIYA SISTER CITY ASSOCIATION
STUDENT AMBASSADOR PROGRAM INFORMATION
AND APPLICATION FOR 2019
This cultural and educational exchange program is part of the “People to People” programs initiated by President Dwight D. Eisenhower during the early 1950s. As part of these historical programs, the Montebello Student Ambassador Exchange with Ashiya, Japan, established in 1964, will celebrate 55 years in 2019. The Student Ambassador experience allows Montebello students to travel to Japan, live in the homes of Ashiya families and participate in Japanese cultural events. In exchange, Ashiya students come to live in Montebello; thus, the program serves to strengthen and promote better understanding and friendship between the United States and Japan.
The students selected for this exchange program act as Ambassadors for the City of Montebello and participate in numerous public appearances and speaking engagements in Ashiya, Japan. Many long lasting friendships have developed among past student ambassadors and the people working together in the Montebello-Ashiya Sister City program. But this “People to People” program also fosters friendship and cooperation between the residents of the two cities: Montebello and Ashiya.
The Montebello-Ashiya Sister City Association normally selects 3 students from Montebello to represent the Association and Montebello City as ambassadors. Two are selected to travel to Ashiya, Japan, and at least one will remain in Montebello to act as a host ambassador.
