I'd like to see in the near term a review of the current policy the city has for community notification in R-1 zones where major improvements are planned using the city's easement rights for erecting/construction of wireless transmission facilities. The current process is deeply flawed and puts the homeowner or the homeowners association in an almost a no-win position, as well as in a financial straitjacket before we know what is hitting us. Signs that are posted become city property, which can't be touched during the 30-day notification period without being a misdemeanor even on homeowners association property.

An equipment malfunction knocked power out at Glendale Community College Friday morning, prompting officials to cancel classes and close the campus. Interim Supt. Jim Riggs said repairs on the equipment would last well into the night, and announcement on whether the campus would be closed Saturday wasn't expected until late Friday night. The college would notify students via its mass email notification system. Most of the college's faculty and staff were also sent home, although some remained at work under back-up lighting systems that kicked into gear, Riggs added.

LA CRESCENTA — Crescenta Valley residents may soon start receiving e-mail and text messages from their local sheriff's station when major incidents occur. Crescenta Valley station lieutenants have been receiving training on a new Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department system dedicated to sending e-mails and text messages regarding missing persons, crime trends, wanted suspects, traffic incidents and more, station Capt. David Silversparre said. "It's not something that we are going to use for minor incidents," he said.

Fireworks coming to the Americana Published Nov. 18 CENTRAL GLENDALE — Taking a page from last year’s controversial tree lighting ceremony, Americana at Brand and city officials this week warned residents to expect the boom and spectacle of a fireworks show Thursday evening. Comments: arbpen Well, I took my 5-year-old son to this. According to the city’s press release dated Nov. 17, 2009, the event was supposed to start at 7:30 p.m. I told my son that if he finished all his homework, we could go. We live two blocks away at Lomita at Brand, so we left at 7:05 p.m., just in case it was crowded.

CENTRAL GLENDALE — Taking a page from last year’s controversial tree lighting ceremony, Americana at Brand and city officials this week warned residents to expect the boom and spectacle of a fireworks show tonight. Last year, some on the City Council dais blasted the Americana for the fireworks display as wildfires raged across the Southland, with some evacuees staying at nearby hotels. Then-Mayor John Drayman called the move “dumb-headed” after some residents complained they had no advance notice of the major fireworks display, echoing concerns made for a similar show when the mixed-use complex had its grand opening in May. Still, others who attended the show lauded the event as a spectacular holiday season kick-off.

Bravo to Dan Kimber for his excellent column on the larger developments that are taking place in the Crescenta Valley (“Cutting developments down to size,” Education Matters, Aug. 1). I especially applaud his observations that the Crescenta Valley is unique in its natural settings and slower pace, and should not be lumped with the more cosmopolitan “flat-land” Glendale where development is concerned. There is a growing movement in the Crescenta Valley to protect and nurture that precious difference in traffic and crowded housing that we currently enjoy over other parts of Glendale.
