On March 22 and March 29, Mayor Keith Eich delivered the State of the City Address to the La Cañada Kiwanis Club, marking an important annual event that celebrates community accomplishments, outlines future goals, and keeps residents, businesses, and organizations informed and connected.
“These annual meetings serve as a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our vibrant LCF community, develop strategic plans for the future, and share the City’s priorities with our community,” shared Mayor Eich. “Above all, they are a powerful tool to foster a sense of connection and engagement among all community members.”
During the address, Mayor Eich shared a recap of the City’s 2022 achievements and discussed future undertakings in the Administration, Finance, Community Development, and Public Works departments. He also announced City Council’s plans to make improvements to LCUSD Athletic Fields, tennis courts, Lanterman Auditorium, and Memorial Park, with additional funding from a new Per Capita Grant. Moreover, Mayor’s Discovery Park will receive further upgrades and recreational opportunities this year.
In addition, Mayor Eich announced 2023 plans to improve the ConnectLCF Self Service Portal to better serve the community. Notably, the portal’s new GIS element will give the public access to zoning information.
Residents can also look forward to the conversion of the La Cañada Skate Park to mixed use pickleball and basketball courts and the development of a 5-year master plan by the City’s Age-Friendly Project Team to help LCF become more accommodating to all.
Mayor Eich also provided an update on the progress of the four-phase Soundwall Project. Phase II and IV designs were completed in December 2022 and Phase III in February 2023. The City is still seeking funds to complete the remainder of the work.
