If you have driven down Garey lately, you might have noticed some construction going on. If you look closer, you would see no fewer than 46 newly chopped down trees (well treestumps and dirt planters now) along the west side of Garey north of Phillips. So there will be no shade along that stretch just in time for summer. Please someone tell me this is part of a Garey Avenue revitalization where other trees will be planted instead? Even if that's the case, couldn't new landscaping have incorporated the old? It's not as if we have an overabundance of trees in Pomona. On Pomona's main drags, we seem to have more signs than trees from what I can tell. My husband has taken to calling Pomona "Sign City." Most of the signs are the temporary kind you stick in the ground to announce an event or product.
The latest sign to pop up around Pomona is the "Our family is praying for Pomona" sign. I was driving through Montclair when I first saw this sign, which made me feel like we're some kind of charity case. But now that I am starting to see them go up in Pomona too, I feel better. I'm still bummed about the treestumps on Garey tho.
