The Crescenta Valley Town Council has been busy the last few months with many issues including land use, scholarship awards, and other various activities for our community.
We were honored to have so many residents join us in remembering the sacrifice of Nick Steinbacher in Iraq at our Arbor Day celebration. We are still awaiting the opening of Pickens Park, near the corner of Briggs Avenue and Foothill Blvd., where an oak tree will be planted in his honor. Due to the many requirements between county organizations, the park has been slow going. Hopefully we will be able to report good news on this item at our June general meeting on the 21st, at 7 p.m., at the CV High School Career Center.
During our April meeting, the Council heard from the CV Water District board member Vasken Yardemian about water issues with Glendale customers. We also had an opportunity to hear from the pastor of the First Baptist Church at La Crescenta, Sean Arnett, who informed the Council and community about their youth building, The Ark, which the church is willing to open up to community youths as a safe community center where they can "hang out" and participate in peer tutoring.
