The planning commission Wednesday night delayed decision on a subdivision proposal to create three residential lots on a property at 3525 Altura, which currently has two homes on it. The applicant plans to demolish the existing homes and build three two-story units, with two of them on flag lots behind the main lot on Altura. Linda Whitfield and Carol Gibson, neighbors to the rear on Prospect Avenue, said the proposed rear homes would be six feet from their back property line, and would adversely affect the use of their back yards.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- Although no homes have been built, there will be a grand opening Aug. 5 of a planned hillside subdivision called The Reserve. It is a development at the end of Sleepy Hollow Drive in the San Rafael Hills. In the early 1990s, the developer, EPAC, wanted to build 24 homes but the city rejected that plan because of opposition from the surrounding neighborhood. The city ultimately allowed 18 homes. The subdivision project was part of a controversy a year ago when the builder wanted to use a trail to move heavy equipment.

The Planning Division is recommending the commission deny recommending to the City Council the proposed 572-lot, single-family housing development on 238 acres in the Verdugo Mountains. "It was apparent that the project was inconsistent with the city's general plan," Laura H. Stotler, a senior planner, said Tuesday.

The city of Glendale is apparently approaching the point when some legal decisions can be reached on the future of Mountain Oaks, a 40-acre open space parcel in La Crescenta.

The mayor did not specify when the city might move to acquire the property through legal proceedings, a possibility not mentioned before by city officials. City Atty. Scott Howard said he will present a legal opinion to the city within the next two weeks on the status of the property and city options.

A slew of goals for Glendale residential planning over the next eight years - from small-lot subdivision to encouraging developers to take advantage of density bonuses offered in exchange for affordable housing units - were approved by the City Council this week. But the council's discussion quickly moved beyond the goals laid out in a lofty 270-page report known as a “Housing Element” to gentrification - specifically, whether the boom of luxury apartments in south Glendale will push out poorer residents . “The fear of a gentrification of our downtown is a serious concern of mine,” said Councilman Ara Najarian.
