Robert Shaffer DOWNTOWN -- It's not just about making money, it's about improving our community. That was the message the Chamber of Commerce sent when honoring Cynthia Trangsrud and Walt Disney Imagineering. Trangsrud, the Glendale Chamber of Commerce's CEO of the Year, is a busy woman. Sure, she's a managing partner at Knapp, Petersen & Clarke, a 37-lawyer firm located on the 20th Floor of a Brand Boulevard business building. But that's just her job. Trangsrud also serves on the board of the Glendale Foundation for the Retarded, is a member of the city's audit committee and was a board member of the chamber.

Buck Wargo GRAND CENTRAL -- Two maintenance hangars at the historic Grand Central Airport site have no historic value and can be demolished by The Walt Disney Co. for its campus expansion and renovation, according to an environmental report on the project. The same report, released Thursday, called the 71-year-old Grand Central Terminal Building important to preserve because it is the last building that conveys the history of the Glendale airport, which had the first paved runways west of the Rocky Mountains.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- A small spat between the Glendale Homeowners Coordinating Council and the Walt Disney Co. ended in a compromise Tuesday. Residents will get an extra 15 days to comment on an environmental report on the expansion and renovation of the Disney campus in the San Fernando Road corridor. The Glendale Redevelopment Agency voted 4-1 to approve the extension. Coordinating Council President Richard Ramirez requested a doubling of the 45-day comment period to give the group more time to evaluate the 2,000-plus page report released on July 6. The deadline of Aug. 21 has now been moved to Sept.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- Most of the 4,000 job cuts The Walt Disney Co. plans to make this year are targeted at areas outside of Glendale and the layoffs are not expected to affect local projects, officials said Wednesday. Word of the biggest layoff in Disney's history probably raised concern among many in Glendale, where the company employs hundreds of people at its Walt Disney Imagineering campus and at KABC-TV (Channel 7). But the cuts should have little effect on the station or the company's plans to expand its campus on San Fernando Road to nearly 6 million square feet, said Ken Green, a Disney spokesman.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- The Walt Disney Co. would be required to test soil at its 125-acre campus for chromium 6 and other chemicals and metals before constructing any buildings on the site, according to the final draft of an Environmental Impact Report released Monday. The mitigation measure, which Disney would have to follow if the report is certified by the Glendale Redevelopment Agency, is in response to concerns raised by members of state agencies and the Glendale Homeowners Coordinating Council that more soil investigation at the site was needed.
