NEEDS COUNCIL VOICEResolution supports efforts to stop city plans for an at-grade railroad crossing at Flower Street. NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- The Glendale Homeowners Coordinating Council, an umbrella group that represents the interests of the city's 20 homeowners associations, passed a resolution Monday opposing a planned at-grade railroad crossing at San Fernando Road and Flower Street.
The group voted 8 to 1, with one abstention, in favor of the resolution, which was proposed by the Pelanconi Estates Homeowners' Assn. The Pelanconi association was formed in August, in part to combat the city's attempt to build the controversial rail crossing.
The at-grade crossing, which would be located on a future six-lane extension of Flower Street across from Pelanconi Avenue, would connect a 100-acre development being built by the Walt Disney Co. and other businesses on the west side of the tracks with San Fernando Road.
