The new signs will be equipped with a new technology that make signs more visible to drivers at night.

Le Mesnager Barn

The council approved a grant application to the California Nature Education Facilities Program to help turn the historic Le Mesnager Barn at Deukmejian Wilderness Park into an interpretive center, which can host classes, lectures and meetings.

The City Council earlier this year approved plans for seismic upgrades at the historic barn.

WHAT IT MEANS

City officials will submit the application for consideration.

Community garden

The City Council approved a proposal from the Glendale Kiwanis Club to create an 18-plot community garden at a city-owned parcel at 827 Monterey Road, which has sat vacant for years.

The garden will be down the street from the Monterey Road Eco-Community Garden, which opened last year.

WHAT IT MEANS

The nonprofit has pledged to provide materials and labor to construct the garden beds and a tool shed. Under the agreement, the city will lease the land to the Los Angeles Community Garden Council, which will provide the garden to local community members to oversee, at a cost of $1 per year for five years.
