It features one nice sized bedroom with a bonus room that could be a second bedroom or home office.

Local residents, students and city officials were immortalized Tuesday morning, as they painted mosaic tiles to be embedded in the concrete entranceway of the future Elk Mini Park. The 13,500-square-foot park will replace the dirt lot and chain-link fence that has stood at 800 E. Elk Ave. for two years. The city hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday to kick off construction of the mini park, which will include a small children's playground, outdoor tables, benches, lawn area and a Craftsman-type trellis entranceway.

It was supremely gratifying to see the attendance of community-minded local people who passionately defended the 1914 Craftsman home at 2128 Glenada Ave. at the Crescenta Valley Town Council meeting last Thursday. All save one person who spoke at the lectern were of like mind — they agreed we cannot continue to allow our historic structures to be torn down for the self-interest of developers. The first goal of a developer is to generate as much money out of a project as possible.

MONTROSE — The owner of a historic Craftsman-style house in unincorporated Montrose wants to knock it down and build a two-story, five-unit apartment complex in its place. The developer is scheduled to present the project at a public meeting tonight, but some residents and neighbors are already lamenting the potential loss of one of the community's oldest homes. Built in 1914, just after the city was founded, the house at 2128 Glenada Ave. sits on street with a cul-de-sac, said Mike Lawler, president of the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley.

Community should be calling the shots While reading the July 14 article on the proposed demolition of the Craftsman house to build apartments (“Owners pitch apartment plan to residents”), I was dismayed to read that the residents on the street were resigned to the fact that the apartment building will likely be erected on Glenada Avenue. That’s not the case at all. Let’s look at the facts on this project. This property is zoned R-2, which allows either one single-family home or a duplex to be built “by right.

MONTROSE — Gardeners trimmed trees and installed fences Thursday in front of the first home built in Montrose — a Craftsman cottage built in 1914 — that has been at the center of a controversial plan by a local developer to raze the site. The activity — including cutting grass that had been nearly a foot tall — raised the ire of local residents who feared the activity would move the historical house at 2128 Glenada Ave. closer to demolition. Razmik Tahmasian and Gevorg Voskanian purchased the historic home in 2000 for about $350,000 and rented it out sporadically, but have been looking to demolish the home to make way for apartments.

LA CRESCENTA — A developer proposing to build a five-unit apartment complex in Montrose was met with near unanimous opposition from community members at a public meeting of the Crescenta Valley Town Council land use committee on Thursday. Residents say the project, which would replace a single-family Craftsman-era home built in 1914 at 2128 Glenada Ave., would add traffic, diminish property values and replace an architectural treasure in a neighborhood known for its small-town charm.
