City Council Hasn’t Decided on a Plan for Center Medians Due to Unknown Out-Of Pocket Costs
By Krista Daly
Out of the 25 acres of center medians owned by the city of San Marino, less than 25,000 square feet could receive a renovation in the near future.
City staff applied for the SoCal Water Smart Turf Removal Rebate Program encompassing 19,344 square feet of turf removal for the two northerly center medians along Sierra Madre Blvd. The application was recently approved in the amount of $38,688.
But it doesn’t mean the city council will act on it, said City Manager John Schaefer.
Council will receive an estimate of cost per square foot on Nov. 12, and they will decide whether to move forward with the rebate program or not. In addition to turf removal, the project would include modifications to the irrigation systems and the installation of drought tolerant landscapes.
