Buck Wargo DOWNTOWN - Downtown shoppers will have another place to park, starting Wednesday morning. The $13-million, 620-space Orange Street parking garage is scheduled to open Wednesday, pending inspections today by the Fire Department. Formal ceremonies have been put off until December when the final touches are made to the garage. The opening is seen as a blessing to many merchants along Brand Boulevard and Orange Street. Many of them saw fewer customers walk through their doors because of the closure of Orange Street and the elimination of a surface parking lot on the site.

As part of its expansion plans, the hulking Mercedes-Benz dealership on South Brand Boulevard will soon start building a bridge over East Maple Street to connect its new service center to a four-story parking garage currently under construction. The bridge was approved by City Council members in late 2008 as part of larger expansion plans, but they gave the final OK on Tuesday, including granting permission to build in the space over the street. The bridge is designed to let dealership employees move customer and service vehicles between the two buildings at the third-story level “without disrupting normal vehicle and neighborhood activity on East Maple Street,” according to a city report.

The Redevelopment Agency voted this week to pay $1.1 million to help build a 46-space parking garage beneath the proposed five-screen Laemmle Theatre and live-work lofts at Maryland and Wilson avenues. The agreement raises the city’s contribution for the project to roughly $3 million in waived fees, demolition costs and the city’s original $350,000-purchase of the property. The site, which the city will turn over to the developers, currently houses the Panda Inn restaurant and a surface parking lot. Members of the City Council, acting as the Redevelopment Agency, said the theater, which will specialize in independent and foreign films, will be a key addition to Glendale’s cultural offerings and will provide a boost to nearby businesses.

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.
