Monterey Park, California

Monterey Park is a City in the San Gabriel Valley.  Monterey Park is home to more than 60,000 residents.  It covers almost eight square miles, and encompasses the following zip codes: 91754 and 91755. By the early 1800’s, the area now called Monterey Park was part of the Mission San Gabriel de Archangel and later, the Rancho San Antonio. The area first received a separate identity when Alessandro Repetto purchased 5,000 acres of the rancho and built his home, not far from where the Edison substation is now located on Garfield Avenue. Some years later, Richard Garvey, a mail rider for the U.S. Army whose route took him through Monterey Pass, a trail that is now Garvey Avenue, settled down in the King’s Hills. Garvey began developing the land by bringing in spring water from near the Hondo River and by constructing a 54-foot high dam to form Garvey Lake located where Garvey Ranch Park is now. To pay for his development and past debts, Garvey began selling portions of his property. In 1906, the first subdivision in the area, Ramona Acres, was developed north of Garvey and east of Garfield Avenues. In 1916, the new residents of the area initiated action to become a city when the cities of Pasadena, South Pasadena, and Alhambra proposed to put a large sewage treatment facility in the area. The community voted itself into city hood on May 29, 1916, by a vote of 455 to 33. The city’s new board of directors named the new city Monterey Park. The name was taken from an old government map showing the oak-covered hills of the area as Monterey Hills. In 1920, a large area on the south edge of the city broke away and the separate city of Montebello was established. Real estate became a thriving industry during the 1920s with investors attracted to the many subdivisions under development and increasing commercial opportunities. One such development was the Midwick View Estates by Peter N. Snyder, a proposed garden community that was designed to rival Bel-Air and Beverly Hills. Known as the Father of the East Side, Mr. Snyder was a key player in the vast undertaking in the 1920s of developing the East Side as part of the industrial base of Los Angeles. His efforts to build Atlantic Boulevard, his work with the East Side organization to bring industry to the East Side and his residential and commercial development projects along Atlantic Boulevard (Gardens Square, Golden Gate Square, and the Midwick View Estates) were a major influence to the surrounding communities. The end of World War II resulted in a revived growth trend and explosive population gains during the 1940s and 1950s. Until this time, the population was concentrated in the northern and southern portions of the city, with the Garvey and Monterey Hills forming a natural barrier. With the renewed growth, many new subdivisions were developed, utilizing even the previously undeveloped central area to allow for maximum growth potential. A series of annexations of surrounding acreage also occurred.

Featured Employment Case

United States v. Fresno Unified Sch. Dist., 592 F.2d 1088 (9th Cir. 1979)
The Attorney General brought suit on behalf of the United States, alleging that school district had engaged in a pattern and practice of discrimination against women in its appointment and promotion procedures for administrative and supervisory positions. The United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, M. D. Crocker, J., 412 F.Supp. 392, dismissed the complaint for lack of jurisdiction and failure to state a claim, holding that the authority to initiate such suits had been transferred to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The Attorney General appealed, and the Court of Appeals, Eugene A. Wright, Circuit Judge, held that: (1) the reorganization plan which transferred to the Attorney General the functions of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission with respect to initiating pattern or practice suits against public employers was properly issued and became effective in July, 1978; (2) the legislative history of the reorganization plan supported the Government’s position that the Attorney General never lost his independent authority to initiate public sector pattern or practice suits; (3) even if application of the reorganization plan to permit the Attorney General to bring suit against the school district was a retroactive application, no manifest injustice to the school district would result, and (4) the Attorney General could initiate a pattern or practice suit against the school district without a referral from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission if the Attorney General satisfied the procedural requirements applicable to such suit.
