While such displays are charming to look at, they are also a source of wasted energy.
As to the family’s disappointment that Glendale does not hold a decorating contest: The Committee for a Clean and Beautiful Glendale, which is affiliated with Neighborhood Services, does give “Winter Holiday Spirit Award” certificates to homes under the annual winter holiday decorating program.
Not sure to whom the council is listening
To the City Council: You must be in the arms of any developers who wish to put up condos in Glendale.
Have you ever considered the wishes of your constituents, the people who reside in Glendale, the people who put you in office?
I have lived in my condo at the corner of Louise and Doran streets for 33 years. What used to be a relatively quiet neighborhood is now overrun with traffic using Louise as an alternative to Brand. Although there are stoplights at Doran and Glenoaks Boulevard and a stop sign at Louise and Monterey Road, the cars race through, blaring their music and horns, driving faster than 25 or 30 mph, “in and out” of our parking garages, which face Louise.
With the council’s decision to put up condos on Louise and Broadway and to change the uses of the old Department of Public and Social Services building (“Council approves two downtown towers,” Dec. 19), can you imagine the influx of traffic on Louise?
Do the public’s needs have any bearing on your decisions? Please think. We do pay taxes, which include your salaries.
At least consider “speed bumps” or officers observing the above who will give tickets to noisy speeders.
Thank you for your prompt attention to the above.
