La Canada Flintridge Councilman David Spence has been selected by the League of California Cities as state representative for cities with a population of 35,000 or less. Spence will attend a national assembly of small cities in Washington, D.C., in March, and deliver a report to the League about current issues discussed at the conference.

Marshall Allen A proposed joint-use agreement between the cities of La Canada Flintridge and Pasadena for the use of sports fields at Hahamongna Watershed Park is temporarily on hold, as La Canada Flintridge officials wait for Pasadena officials to sort through other issues. "We are totally and exclusively dependent on a proposal that would be presented by the city of Pasadena," Mayor Dave Spence said. "What we're trying to do is let them know that we are trying to cooperate and put up some money if it would help both kids from La Canada and Pasadena."

The prospect of a Long Beach (710) Freeway tunnel bringing more trucks and other vehicles onto the Foothill (210) Freeway and into city streets is becoming a flashpoint for local residents. It also has caused headaches for the city of La Cañada Flintridge, which earlier this year filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles County Transportation Authority challenging the use of Measure R funding for a project that has not yet been subjected to the California Environmental Quality Act. So it’s no surprise La Cañada Councilman Dave Spence is in a difficult position.

Two local city council members from La Cañada and Glendale are campaigning for appointment to the Metropolitan Transit Agency board, representing the San Fernando Valley and the North County. The seat is opening up because of the retirement of Lancaster Mayor Frank Roberts, who is not seeking re-election to his city council. MTA board members must be elected officials. Seeking the post are La Cañada Flintridge Councilman Dave Spence and Glendale Councilman Ara Najarian. Spence said he has 10 or 12 issues he wants to pursue on the board, and one of them is the so-called "missing link" for local transit.

Local residents could soon have a ski resort within an hour's drive, now that a Newport Beach developer has bought the old Mount Waterman ski area. Developer Richard Metcalf purchased the property, contained within Angeles National Forest. Mt. Waterman was developed as a ski area, the site's caretaker Mark Ogden said, adding that it's been closed for about four years. "It's one of the only private places up in the national forest," said Ogden, who works at nearby Newcomb's Ranch restaurant, an original homestead on the mountain about 25 miles north of La Cañada Flintridge.

Janine Marnien Officials won't know how the city will absorb a potential 14% cut to its general fund until the mid-year budget review, but Mayor Dave Spence says everything is on the table. A slash in the vehicle-license fee backfill funds as proposed by Gov. Gray Davis would result in a $1.2-million hit to the city's revenues. Assistant City Manager Mark Alexander stopped short of calling the proposed cuts horrible, but said the loss in revenue would be difficult for the city.

Two years to the day after an arsonist started what would become the 10th largest wildfire in modern California history, life has returned to normal in La Cañada Flintridge, but scars of the disaster remain. While the Station fire's perpetrator remains at large, the community has moved from rebuilding homes to rebuilding real estate values. But even then, loose ends remain. Local fire officials say a more unified command and communications system is in place to better coordinate firefighting efforts.
