More than 700 state workers will leave Glendale and Burbank over the next two years as the State Compensation Insurance Fund consolidates its operations. The department will relocate 512 jobs from the 25-story Unum building to offices in Fresno, Stockton and Santa Ana by September 2012, according to a statement issued by the agency. By September of 2011, 207 jobs will shift from Burbank to Fresno and Redding, according to the agency.

A proposed mixed-use project along Colorado Street that was voted down by the City Council last June because it was too big has been scaled down and the public can comment on its draft environmental impact report through Monday. Glendale-based CMGT Construction Co. initially wanted to build a four-story building with 90 residential units, 28,828 square feet of retail space, a daycare and a restaurant on a .99-acre lot it owns at 507-525 W. Colorado St. Nearly a year after the development was denied, the commercial component is supplanted with 18,000 square feet of medical-office space and the daycare has been nixed, while the 1,700-square-foot restaurant is scaled back to a 1,000-square-foot counter-service eatery with limited seating, according to the draft environmental impact report.
