Apparently, no one is willing to plunk down $14,600 a year for a private valet parking spot at Bob Hope Airport. After only about 40 days as the parking contractor at Bob Hope Airport, Standard Parking this week recommended that officials put the brakes on the top two levels of valet service, contending the pricey amenities had failed to catch on with customers. The recommendation covers the Black Diamond and Platinum levels of valet parking, the former of which includes a reserved, extra wide, covered space available at any time - for $14,600 a year.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL - The future of valet parking in Glendale will be decided Tuesday and the debate is expected to be lively. The Glendale City Council, acting as the Redevelopment Agency, will consider a proposal from redevelopment staff to continue allowing streets to be used for valet services. The services are popular among restaurant-goers and Alex Theatre patrons along Brand Boulevard. Glendale Mayor Ginger Bremberg will call for the city to end the practice, a proposal almost certain to be opposed bydowntown restaurant owners who say they rely on valet parking for their customers.

Mayor Ginger Bremberg and Councilman Gus Gomez voted against valet service, and Councilman Dave Weaver may join them in 2000.

DOWNTOWN ? The Americana at Brand has sent free one-day valet parking vouchers to non-Glendale residents in an effort to draw more area consumers to the shopping center during the holiday season, an executive said. Although the Americana has become well-known in Glendale, many shoppers outside of the city are unaware of the massive retail and residential complex, said Jennifer Gordon, vice president of Caruso Affiliated. The hope is that the valet parking offer can inspire more consumers to choose the Americana for their shopping needs, Gordon said.

BURBANK — Bob Hope Airport officials are gearing up for the summer travel season, just one year after an anticipated parking crunch was largely fended off in summer 2006. "Even though we avoided the ultimate calamity of running out of parking spaces per se, there still is a very predictable and reliably heavy pressure on the parking lots at the airport," airport spokesman Victor Gill said. Over the Memorial Day weekend, airport officials had to close four out of five parking lots Friday afternoon because of heavy parking demand, he said.

Jackson Bell Anticipating a strong summer for travel, Bob Hope Airport officials are planning to hike parking fees at the airport by as much as 40%. Business is returning to pre- 9/11 levels, and the competition for parking has slackened, so airport officials want to start charging more for parking by the beginning of the new fiscal year in July. Officials are mulling a price jump between 20% and 40% for the airport's short-term, valet and long-term parking services, said Don Brown, commissioner for the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority.

Free parking is not the solution This is in response to a letter by Claude W. Soderstrom (“Parking charge is bad for business,” Jan. 1) regarding minimal fee charges for parking at the Americana at Brand. Any time you do last-minute holiday shopping at 3 p.m. Christmas Eve, you’re taking risks in finding available parking. Next to Black Friday, Christmas Eve is the second busiest shopping day of the year. Soderstrom calculated the numbers from the roof the Galleria Parking Structure, which fronts the Americana garage to the north.

It is easy for homeowners associations to get reputations with a whole slate of “not in my backyard”-related positions ranging from oversized mansions to businesses behaving badly. Some of these are deserved, I suppose, but many more are justified. The problems that residents of Adams Hill have with the latest incarnation of the De Revolution restaurant (“Troubled restaurant may be allowed to reopen,” June 12) is a clear case of the latter. The issues Neighborhood Services presented at the conditional-use permit revocation hearing before Zoning Administrator Edith Fuentes focused primarily on whether De Revolution’s operations without building permits and with expanded seating violated the terms of their original conditional-use permits.
