This article was updated. It's always sad to see landmark restaurants close. Take the venerable Bucket in Eagle Rock. There for more than 50 years, then suddenly and unceremoniously gone. Larkin's in Eagle Rock wasn't there for decades, but the soul food restaurant was loved by many before its closure last year due to a death in the family. The 100-year-old bungalow vacated by Larkin's has become a lovely spot featuring progressive American comfort food, destined to stay in the neighborhood as long as it likes.

CITY HALL — City Council members want to save a historic Craftsman-style bungalow in the southern part of Glendale. Instead of opting to demolish the home, the council unanimously voted on Tuesday to keep it and integrate it into design plans for a mini-park at Cedar and Harvard streets. "The city was only 7 years old when this [house] was built," Mayor Dave Weaver said. "It's about as historical as you can get in this city." The 1,200-square-foot bungalow — built in 1913 — was purchased in 2000, along with three other properties at the corner of Cedar and Harvard streets, with the intention of clearing the site to make way for the Cedar mini-park, said George Chapjian, director of parks, recreation and community services.

CITY HALL — A proposed $1.6-million mini park on South Cedar Street that is popular with city officials and historical preservationists because it incorporates a vintage Craftsman bungalow will go before the City Council on Tuesday for final approval. The “gardenesque” park at the corner of South Cedar and East Harvard streets has earned widespread praise for providing much-needed green space in park-deficient south Glendale while preserving a “historically significant” 1913 Craftsman bungalow that houses city youth programs.

As she gathered with friends in the new library at Glenoaks Elementary School on Monday, 11-year-old Meghan Imperio eagerly volunteered her endorsement. “I love how it is organized, especially from fiction to nonfiction,” the sixth-grade student said. “It is more roomy and colorful, and more kid-friendly.” That was exactly what parent volunteers had in mind when they began fundraising in fall 2010 to revamp the facility. “Our goal was not just to have a new library space, but really to reinvent the culture of the library here at the school,” said Karen Veloz, president of the Glenoaks Elementary School Foundation.

Glendale Design Review Board #2 last week gave preliminary approval to a rear addition for a small single family bungalow located at 3331 Honolulu Avenue. The existing house is about 800 square feet. The addition will bring the home?s size to 2,127 square feet plus a new, two-car garage in the rear. Architect Sang Park said most of the addition is not visible from the street. The existing single-car garage will be removed, with a two-car unit built to the rear. The width of the existing driveway will be reduced to 9 feet.

The City Council on Tuesday will vote on the final version of a draft ordinance limiting individual political campaign contributions to $1,000. The limit will also apply to corporations, labor unions and other organizations that donate either cash or the equivalent worth in so-called ?in-kind? contributions. Contributions from individuals or entities with city contracts worth $25,000 or more would be prohibited, as would those with an entitlement before the council or Redevelopment Agency 90 days before or after the application is filed.

Students marveled Wednesday at Columbus Elementary School’s new two-story buildings as they opened for classes after less than nine months of construction. Children clambered up unfamiliar stairways, crowded around new playground equipment and appreciated the quality of the two new buildings, which will replace a set of old buildings and bungalow classrooms, some of which have been on the campus since 1968, said John Fenton, the Glendale Unified School District’s administrator of planning, development and facilities.

"How's it going, Pete? Nice haircut! Today's the big day, huh?" "You said it, kid!" Pete shouted back with a smile. "Today's the big day!" Pete and his wife, Laura, lived in the same complex as my friend Buck back when I was 12 or so. We saw him almost every day walking on the street, to and from the factory in which he worked. He was a quiet man in his 40s who always walked with his head down and his lips silently moving, as if carrying on some running disagreement with himself.

The town of my youth was in the midst of profound change when my family and I moved there. The long-established white population was giving way, fast and steadily, to Latinos. My mother used to sum up the tension between the old citizenry and the new in a single sentence. "This town," she'd say, "is an old man who doesn't like children." I spent a lot of time back then hanging out at my friend Buck's place. Buck lived in a tiny one-room bungalow -- one in a complex of seven 1920s-era bungalows that faced a common grass courtyard.

The project is expected to be completed by the time classes begin next school year in August, said Mark Keppel Principal Lise Søndergaard.

The City Council has declined to grant historic status for two recently renovated Craftsman bungalows because the owner failed to completely preserve the early 1900s-era properties, which were considered valuable landmarks at risk of demolition. The historic designation would have triggered a state law that reduces property taxes in exchange for stricter rules governing alterations. Siding with the Historic Preservation Commission, the council voted 3-2, with Councilwoman Laura Friedman and Mayor Frank Quintero dissenting, to deny the historic status.

GLENDALE — Portable classrooms will return to Crescenta Valley High School in the spring, this time to house students while construction defects that have caused leaks in several buildings are repaired. Board members discussed the plan to bring back the classrooms during a meeting Tuesday in which they voiced frustration over an allegedly botched construction job during a $40-million modernization project that was completed in 2002. The portable classrooms will be similar to the ones used while undergoing the original project, officials said.
