Glendora : Landmark Status Awarded

May 10, 1990

The Glendora City Council, exercising for the first time its power under the city's Historic Preservation Ordinance, has designated two buildings and a tree as landmarks.

The action prohibits exterior changes to the buildings or cutting of the tree without permission from the city's Historic Preservation Committee. At the council meeting Tuesday, Planning and Redevelopment Director Stan Wong said the Mission Revival-style Sutherland wing of the Historical Society building, at 314 N. Glendora Ave., was chosen for preservation because was Glendora's City Hall until 1921, when the present City Hall was built.

The present City Hall, the second building protected, is a mix of Classical Revival and Italian Renaissance styles. It is located at 116 E. Foothill Blvd.

An Australian Moreton Bay fig tree at the corner of Colorado and Santa Fe avenues was also granted landmark status. Wong said the tree is one of the largest of its variety in California, second only to a tree in Santa Barbara. According to the plaque next to the fig tree, it is 90 feet high with a trunk that is 30 feet in circumference.
