The commission approved the proposal in a 4-1 vote. The vote recommended that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors hold a public hearing to consider the proposal. The Board of Supervisors will meet to act on the proposal in two or three months, Regional Planning Department Administrator Ron Hoffman said.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- Unemployment in Glendale declined by 0.1% for the second month in a row during December 2001, but Don Nakamoto, city labor market specialist, said it's still too soon to call the decline a trend. "You would probably have to see it move pretty substantially up or down at least a percentage point over a six-month period," Nakamoto said. "Then you could conclude the momentum is going in one direction or another." Glendale's unemployment rate in December fell from 5.5% in November to 5.4%, or 5,480 people, according to numbers released by the California Employment Development Department.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- The unemployment rate in Glendale bucked a two-month declining trend in January, jumping up 0.8%, and labor market consultants are attributing the rise to a number of reasons. Don Nakamoto, labor market specialist for the city of Glendale, said the sudden jump locally was caused in part by the new unemployment law that became effective Jan. 1. Gov. Gray Davis passed a law after Sept. 11 that raised unemployment benefits from $230 a week to $330 a week.

I applaud the Adams Hill visionaries who opened up the former homeowners association to renters and business owners and formed a more inclusive neighborhood association [“Group widens reach,” Sept. 25]. I also share the Glendale News-Press editorial position [“Adams Hill association is ahead of the curve,” Sept. 26] that a group of all stakeholders is more effective politically than a mere homeowners group. The Crescenta Valley Community Assn. was formed in mid-2007 as a cross-jurisdictional organization representing stakeholders in the Crescenta Valley, including portions of Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge and Los Angeles, as well as unincorporated La Crescenta-Montrose.
