Bicyclists got their own parking structure Monday at the Metrolink station in downtown Burbank -- a secure building with 40 parking stalls, a repair stand and other features that officials say should entice more people to use public transit. A longtime gripe among cyclists in the L.A. region has been the lack of accommodations for their bikes at public transit hubs, but Burbank and state transportation officials on Monday touted the so-called Bike Stop a major leap in convenience.

Alecia Foster NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- The idea surfaced about four years ago, then disappeared. Now, Glendale Community College officials are reviving the idea of building a parking structure on campus. "It resurfaced when we decided there are some needs that can only be met by a bond measure," said Larry Serot, vice president of administrative services for the college. College officials are looking into placing a capital improvement bond on the March 2002 ballot in an effort to help meet the college's growth needs.

GLENDALE — Students will have to wait until December for full access to Glendale Community College’s new parking structure, nearly three months past the originally promised opening date. Most of the structure itself is complete, said Larry Serot, executive vice president of administrative services. But an 87-day delay in the construction of key access points to the structure will have students scaling multiple flights of stairs to and from the hilltop structure overlooking the campus, he said.

GLENDALE — Beginning in mid-2007, Glendale Community College will receive 390,000 kilowatt hours of solar energy a year — enough to power about 125 homes — following the City Council's approval of a contract for the construction of a photovoltaic system to serve the campus Tuesday. The system will consist of a carport-like roof, made up of several solar panels, that will be placed above the college's new parking structure. It will channel energy collected from the sun into the college.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Getting from the car to class just got easier at Glendale Community College, where many students on Tuesday welcomed the opening of an elevator tower that connects the new parking structure to the campus buildings down the hill. “It’s great,” said student Hovik Mkrtchian, stepping out of the top of the elevator tower on the way back to his car. “It’s much better than taking the stairs.” The elevator tower, which holds two elevators and is connected to the parking structure by a bridge, was supposed to be ready for use at the beginning of the fall semester when the $27-million parking structure was completed.

Local teens who stopped by the Glendale Galleria on Friday night probably weren't going to get a whole lot of shopping done. Most of the action was on the top level of the Galleria's parking structure, where Ultimate Summer Jam II kicked off at 6 p.m. The event offered teens music, giveaways, prizes and interactive games. Three local bands competed for $500 in cash, professional BMX riders performed stunts off several quarter- and half-pipes on the parking structure's top level, and a "Rockin' Runway" fashion show boasted back-to-school fashions.

The developers of a proposed 225-unit apartment complex on Los Feliz Road were asked by the Glendale City Council on Tuesday to reduce its density by 25% to better accommodate the amount of parking in the project, but it's unclear whether a redesign will come back for consideration. Council members voted 3-2 to require Dallas, Texas-based Mill Creek Residential Trust to trim the number of units in the Tropico Apartments complex proposed at 435 Los Feliz Road in order to make sure there's adequate parking prior to being granted approval to build.

In the 20 years since the 6.7-magnitude Northridge earthquake shook Southern California, Glendale has rebounded with stricter building codes and better communication among its public safety agencies. The devastating temblor, which struck at 4:31 a.m. on Jan. 17, 1994, killed 60 people in the region and destroyed tens of thousands of structures, including some major ones in Glendale. The disastrous event, however, reinforced the need to better connect with each other and residents, city officials said.

A 1,110-pound bronze statue - and the controversy surrounding it - is Glendale's newsmaker of the year. The “comfort women” statue in Central Park honors an estimated 80,000 to 200,000 women who suffered during a government-sanctioned prostitution system set up to serve Japanese soldiers during World War II. A heated debate began even before it was installed in July and it continues to drive news headlines in Japan and Glendale. The statue, the first on the West Coast, continues to drive discontent in Japan as some conservatives there believe the women from Korea, China, Philippines and other countries acted willingly as prostitutes, rather than being coerced into prostitution, as former comfort women claim.

Construction bids for a new transit center and parking structure at Bob Hope Airport came in under budget this week, a reversal in fortune for a project that was put on a diet last year after the first round of building proposals came in at far more than anticipated. In June, the so-called intermodal transit center - which will include facilities for rental cars and rail and bus lines to better connect passengers to the terminal - was scaled down after bids for the project came in $47 million to $75 million above the originally projected cost of $112 million.
