Maintaining Alhambra’s Local Quality of Life

Join the Conversation

Alhambra prides itself on being a desirable, safe place to live, do business and raise a family.

After years of State takeaways of local funds, Alhambra is facing budget deficits. As part of our transparent budget process and to inform future strategic planning, we have identified several community priorities for local funds including:

  • Preventing property crimes, like thefts and burglaries
  • Maintaining police, fire and 9-1-1 emergency response
  • Keeping public areas safe and clean
  • Maintaining essential City services
  • Helping ensure young people have safe places to play
  • Repairing streets and potholes
  • Maintaining local control of local funds

The City is committed to continuing to reflect your priorities in our decision-making through our community-centered budget process and planning for the future. We want to hear from you!

Please join the conversation TODAY and tell us what is important to you by completing a Community Feedback Survey. Thank you for participating!

If you have questions regarding Alhambra’s current fiscal challenges and service priorities and would like to hear more, please contact Lucy Garcia in the City Manager’s office at 626-570-3257 or
