Ryan Carter LA CRESCENTA -- Andrew Adelman says he enjoys the small-town feel of La Crescenta. He loves the fact that the unincorporated community is so close to metropolitan areas, and yet it keeps its Mayberry U.S.A. flavor, he said.

Legislation that seeks to prevent confiscation of automobiles under certain circumstances was introduced by a local state legislator. Dennis Mountjoy (R-La Crescenta) introduced the bill this week in the Assembly. The legislation would prohibit code enforcement officials from confiscating a car if it has a certificate of nonoperation on file with the Department of Motor Vehicles and if it is not readily visible from the street, Mountjoy said. Mountjoy was reacting to what he said was the unwarranted confiscation of cars that are not "junked" cars that people keep in their backyards as part of a collection, or for other reasons.

Ryan Carter The Redevelopment Agency on Tuesday approved the design for a condominium and retail building, paving the way for more housing in the downtown area.

It will include 34 condominium units and 3,900 square feet of commercial space.
