Project Updates

Project Update: Delayed but still committed to our plan…

8-31-2016

In July of last year – a month after the Montebello City Council approved the Specific Plan for the Montebello Hills Planned Community – a Rosemead-based group called Citizens for Open and Public Participation (COPP) filed a lawsuit challenging the city’s approval.

This past June, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled against COPP, allowing the city’s approval of the project to stand.

Unfortunately, COPP has chosen to appeal the judge’s decision, which will result in many more months (and possibly years) of additional delays.

Over the course of nearly nine years, the city conducted a thorough and complete review of the Montebello Hills Specific Plan project as required by the California Environmental Quality Act, and we are confident the Court of Appeal will uphold the city’s approval.

In the meantime, we will continue our planning efforts to proceed with the project once the legal process is complete.

The Montebello Hills Community Information Center remains open as a conveniently located information resource for visitors. Open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the center features information exhibits on all the elements and benefits of the new community. We encourage you to visit the center located at 801 W. Whittier Blvd. in Montebello.

The MontebelloHills.com project website is active and up-to-date with information about the project and our progress.

Thank you for your continued interest in the Montebello Hills Community. We will keep you informed of our progress.

 

Project Update: Working hard, making progress…

Since the city council’s approval of the Montebello Hills Planned Community in June of last year, many of you have called us, sent an email or dropped by the Montebello Hills Community Information Center asking about the status of the project. Cook Hill Properties is grateful for your continued interest and support.

Cook Hill Properties is continuing its planning efforts to proceed with the project. In addition, we are working hard every day to re-establish the native plant communities within the Montebello Hills Habitat Reserve that were damaged during the Lincoln Fire on August 16, 2015. We have made significant progress in restoring this important natural habitat, which will set the stage for proceeding with the new community in the future.

The Montebello Hills Community Information Center remains open as a conveniently located information resource for visitors. Open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the center features information exhibits on all the elements and benefits of the new community.

Finally, our Cook Hill Properties team members remain active in the community, serving organizations such as the Montebello Chamber of Commerce, the Montebello-Commerce YMCA, the Rotary Club of Montebello and the Montebello Soroptomists.

Thank you for your continued interest in the Montebello Hills Community. We will keep you informed of our progress.
