Attend the next Arcadia Community Coordinating Council (ACCC) meeting on Feb. 3 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. at Church of the Good Shepherd’s Jordan Hall (400 W. Duarte Road, Arcadia) to see what is currently being built, what’s about to start and what is being considered in the future.

There is a strong interest in multi-family housing and mixed-use development as well as new hotel and medical facilities. There continues to be challenges with big box retail, pharmacies, grocery stores and traditional retail shops. Where does the city stand?

Tim Schwehr is the senior economic development analyst for the City of Arcadia. He currently serves as lead staff for the City of Arcadia’s Economic Development Division. In this role, Schwehr oversees efforts to attract new businesses and development, works with regional organizations to foster economic growth, and acts as the city’s liaison to the business community.

Prior to his current position, Schwehr worked for seven years as a city planner, during which time he developed a planning-based approach to economic development. He has a bachelor’s in political science from the University of Washington and a master’s in urban and regional planning from Cal Poly Pomona. Schwehr is originally from Seattle but moved to L.A. in 2003 for the sunny weather and Southern California lifestyle.
