I have lived in the foothill area for 38 years and still consider this part of L.A. County a bit of paradise. Before we can discuss the beautification of one offramp, I believe the larger picture of maintaining our current offramps and freeway roadsides should be addressed. The amount of trash that is allowed to accumulate on the Pennsylvania Avenue, La Crescenta Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard exits is a disgrace to the entire area. If I'm correct, I believe that there is an adopt-a-highway sign posted on the 210 Freeway with the name "La Crescenta Town Council" on it. I spend a good deal of time traveling around the L.A. area, and these offramps are without doubt in the worst condition of any in the metro L.A. area.

CITY HALL — An effort to green the San Fernando Road corridor that has been more than 10 years in the making could find itself again postponed after the Redevelopment Agency — acting on neighborhood criticism Tuesday — directed the city attorney to come back with a report on how to reopen negotiations with stakeholders of an additional 4-foot-wide stretch of land. Neighbors of the industrial corridor have stepped up their criticism of the beautification project as crews install the chain-link fence — which will later be covered with vines — on the city’s 3.5-foot-wide right-of-way, saying it falls too short of what they were promised more than 10 years ago. Last year, the scope of the beautification project was significantly reduced from 7.5 to 3.5 feet wide after years of talks with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority — which controls the stretch of land along the railway — and other easement stakeholders broke down over the landscaping.

Three cheers for the city's long-awaited beautification plans for San Fernando Road, and frowns to letter writer Tom Harris (Dec. 6) for dismissing people's expectations for that area. Many Rancho property owners living west of the largely bleak, industrial area where the railroad and the interstate divide them from the rest of Glendale have for years been hoping for both cleanup and landscape measures to be taken there under the auspices of the Redevelopment Agency and Public Works.

CITY HALL — A watered-down landscape plan for the San Fernando Road corridor is expected to gain final approval today from the Redevelopment Agency, eight months after the project was halted to address neighbors who said it was smaller than promised. The $2.2-million beautification project that crews began work on earlier this year was to have included new greenery within a 3.5-foot-wide right-of-way along the roadway, far less than the 10-foot swath residents along the busy industrial corridor said they were promised years ago. But even with the boundary back at 10 feet, city officials said concessions will still have to be made.

WEST GLENDALE — A landscape plan for the San Fernando Road corridor that has been in flux for the past 10 years will change yet again after the City Council on Tuesday bowed to long-standing neighborhood pressure, directing city officials in a closed session meeting to restore the project closer to its original scope. The direction came even as crews earlier this week continued to carry out work on the already-approved $2.2-million beautification project, installing fence poles along the perimeter of the current 3.5-foot-deep project boundary that nearby residents have called much too thin compared with the original 10 feet they were promised.

So my wife and I drove by there looking for the beautification portion. What we saw was some steel poles with rectangular shaped, rabbit hutch-type wire fence in between. I for one would like to come to the defense of the folks who inspired its erection after no doubt obtaining a variance from the fence ordinance the City Council passed a couple of years ago.
