It also honored a few residents and historic homes, examined anticipated water and sewer rate increases, and listened to reports from community members, law enforcement and state dignitary representatives.
Honored as Neighbor of the Month was Linda Evans, principal at Crescenta Valley High School. Town Council President Grace Andrus presented the award to Evans on behalf of the council for all of the work Evans has done to facilitate council meetings at the high school and the recent council elections, which also were in the school’s career center.
“Linda really went well beyond the call of duty. She’s a very good hostess,” Andrus said, adding that Evans’ flexibility and assistance are greatly appreciated.
In other business, Andrus also related what she said was, “some really good news about the dog park.” A group of council and Los Angeles County departmental leaders, involved in a task force to locate a potential site for a proposed Crescenta Valley area dog park, will visit three local sites Monday, Feb. 4.
Sites to be visited are: the Eagle Debris Basin, behind Two-Strike Park; a property at the top of Rosemont Avenue; and the Alta Terrace Debris Basin on La Crescenta Avenue
The county is reviewing current policies related to dog parks and will revise those rules to create a policy more applicable to the Crescenta Valley community, Andrus said, adding that the Crescenta Valley park would be a pilot program and the first unincorporated area within the county to have a dog park.
