Sierra Madre’s Measure M has been looming since November, when Measure HR was defeated.
By Briony James
Last Year’s Measure HR, which failed, would have changed the zoning of the Meadows plot of the Congregation of the Passion Mater Dolorosa Community at 700 North Sunnyside, curtailing its planned development.
This May, Measure M (Shall City Council Ordinance No. 1461 approving a zoning map amendment, a specific plan, and a development agreement for The Meadows at Bailey Canyon project located at 700 North Sunnyside Avenue in Sierra Madre be adopted?) passed in the May 9th, 2023, vote by a margin of approximately 10% (54.48% of the votes).
The planned development retains the Monastery’s rights, and building 42 homes along with a 3-acre park. The home designs will be reviewed for approval and the measure allows for the funding of utilities, police and fire departments as well as expanded street access and attention to significant environmental preservation.
