The long-awaited community standards district for Foothill Boulevard was approved unanimously by the Los Angeles board of supervisors Tuesday, nearly eight years after the process of upgrading the local business street began. The CSD was actually presented as an amendment to existing rules covering multiple development in La Crescenta-Montrose, adopted by the county in 2007. The new standards were approved last August by the regional planning commission. Mitch Glaser of county planning said the new standards are more restrictive than existing county rules and cover such issues as design, setback, landscaping and parking.

I served on the Crescenta Valley Town Council for seven years through 2008. In 2001, local resident Richard Toyon came to the council with a slide presentation asking us to envision Foothill Boulevard in the future. Did we want Foothill to be filled with cookie-cutter fast food and retail chain stores, or did we want to have a commercial district that was unique and in character with our neighborhoods? The council was overwhelmingly in favor of the latter, and the Foothill Design Committee was formed, with myself and Toyon as the co-chairs.
