The former Monrovia Nursery site is comprised of about 95 acres in northwest Glendora. The redevelopment of the site includes two subdivisions totaling 121 single-family residences. In 2007, the Glendora City Council enacted a development moratorium over the nursery properties to allow for the preparation of a specific plan. In December 2010, the City Council approved the Monrovia Nursery Specific Plan. In October 2012, the City Council approved minor changes to the Specific Plan.

Annexation and LAFCO Application
A portion of the Monrovia Nursery site is located in unincorporated Los Angeles County. The City of Glendora has filed an application with the Los Angeles County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) to annex the unincorporated portions of the Monrovia Nursery site and other nearby properties into the City of Glendora. On September 25, 2012, the City Council approved an amended LAFCO application. LAFCO is expected to render its decision regarding the annexation in 2013.
