Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- The Glendale zoning administrator will review two requests today for variances to allow two homes on Valley View Road. Charles Rendler from Manhattan Beach has requested the variances, which are needed because the project wouldn't have required driveways. Permits are also needed to grade dirt. The homes would be built at 1642 and 1650 Valley View Road. Also today, Thomas Ortiz is requesting a variance to allow a building to be converted into a fast-food restaurant at 469 Burchett St. The hearing is set for 9:30 a.m. in Room 105 of the Municipal Services Building, 633 E. Broadway.

Joshua Pelzer The City Council will consider the next step in revising Glendale's multifamily zoning and development standards Tuesday. Changes would protect single-family units in multifamily areas, limit nonconforming land use and keep developments consistent with surrounding neighborhoods. "We've found blocks where the homes are built at a higher density than the zoning [indicates] so the zoning isn't representing reality," Planning Director Elaine Wilkerson said.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors continued a discussion on zoning issues in Montrose until its next meeting, which will be Tuesday morning. Supervisor Michael Antonovich proposed directing the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning to initiate a zoning study that would address zoning and development concerns community members voiced at last month's Crescenta Valley Town Council meeting. The Board continued the discussion this week to determine whether development applications already filed with the county would be grandfathered in before making any decisions on the proposal.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- A Glendale service station is requesting a permit to expand. The Glendale zoning administrator will consider a request from Sam's Pacific station, 1000 N. Pacific Ave. The service station owners want to add about 600 square feet, but it does not meet development standards in that area. The zoning administrator will also consider a request for The New Light Church, 1020 W. Kenneth Road, to renew a permit allowing the building to be used as a church.

CITY HALL — The future of zoning variances in most residential areas comes down to a City Council vote tonight on two competing ordinances. On one end is an ordinance that would ban property owners from applying to build something other than what is allowed in single-family and low-density residential zones. On the other is a proposal to maintain the current policy of allowing exemptions, with the exception of diverting applications straight to the Planning Commission rather than the city zoning administrator.

CITY HALL — The City Council on Tuesday postponed a final vote on banning all future zoning variances in single-family residential neighborhoods, instructing city planners to return with a compromise ordinance that would make allowances for those properties that, under the proposed ban, could find themselves shuttered. The stricter version proposed Tuesday would have thrown a handful of properties that host schools or community youth centers into doubt once their zoning use variances expired.

City officials have made it easier for Glendale Adventist Medical Center to upgrade or expand its facilities, creating a special zoning overlay for the hospital that officials say better accommodates the unique nature of the facility. The City Council unanimously approved the zone change Tuesday. City planner Laura Stotler explained to the council that the current commercial zoning regulation didn't account for a large, multibuilding campus such as Glendale Adventist. “You might have areas that frankly, are not visible from the public, you might have multiple property lines but all owned by the same owner,” she said.

Much like the Hollywood sign, the large white letters tower on a hillside. Unlike the iconic landmark nearly 11 miles away, this new sign on a squat hill near the Glendale (2) Freeway doesn't evoke glitz and glam. It poses a question - a socio-political one - to commuters. "LIBERTY?" Ironically, a sign eliciting doubt about one's independence from authority has gotten the owner of the site in trouble with government officials. Although the sign, which has been up for at least two weeks, overlooks the interchange between the northbound so-called Glendale Freeway and the westbound Ventura (134)

COMPTON - With his team celebrating behind him a few minutes after clinching a West Zone Tournament Palomino championship, Arroyo Seco 18U baseball Coach Aaron Milam reflected on the differences between 2012 and 2013. Even though in both seasons Milam's Saints clinched West Zone Tournament crowns and earned berths to the Palomino World Series, there are substantial contrasts. “I think the biggest difference is just having experience in getting to the World Series,” Milam said.

COMPTON - There's no place like the West Zone for the Arroyo Seco Saints 18U summer baseball team. Five days after opening defense of their 2012 championship with a loss, the Saints concluded a stunning turnaround with a 6-3 victory over the South Bay Legacy in the championship game of the Palomino West Zone Tournament at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Center in Compton. The victory was the fifth in a row over a four-day span for the Saints (31-5), who advance to Thursday's opening round of the Palomino World Series versus Jakarta, Indonesia at noon back at the Urban Youth Center.

COMPTON - What seemed like a long shot only four days ago is looking more and more like sure a bet. After the Arroyo Seco Saints 18U baseball team kick-started defense of its West Zone Palomino Tournament crown by stubbing its toe in defeat, the Pasadena-based squad, which boasts nine local players, did more than just exact revenge Monday evening. The Saints also put themselves in position to repeat as champions after a strange and fortunate 3-2 victory over the PAL Giants of San Jose in tournament semifinal action at the Urban Youth Academy.

Glendale's plan to apply for a "quiet zone" for trains passing through the San Fernando Corridor faces yet another delay. Officials this week confirmed that a major safety improvement project for the Broadway/Brazil Street crossing has been delayed while the city of Los Angeles waits for the approval of $900,000 in federal funding to complete the portion of the project that falls within its border. It's the latest in a series of delays that could push completion of the project - a vital part of creating a rail corridor safe enough to relax rules requiring trains to sound their horns where tracks cross streets - back to spring 2014.

City officials want to make it easier for Glendale Adventist Medical Center to expand, so they took the first step earlier this week in creating a special Medical Services Zone to surround the facility. The City Council passed a motion on Tuesday to have city staff initiate the new zone and related General Plan amendment in what Mayor Dave Weaver said is a first step toward establishing a more streamlined process for the expansion and further development of all three hospitals in Glendale.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority has cobbled together $40 million to build either an underpass or overpass that would improve safety conditions at one of the most dangerous railroad crossings along the Glendale-Los Angeles border. Although the money is available now, it may be at least two years before officials complete environmental and engineering documents. And it may be longer still before construction begins on the Doran Street crossing in the San Fernando Corridor.

The Hoop Heroes Basketball Championship Game has played a major part in helping youngsters in the Salvation Army's Zone Academy improve their literacy. This annual event raises funds for the academy, which provides homework tutoring for youths ages 8 to 13. Included in the program is a Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment component that helps youngsters work on improving their literacy. The program was so successful during the first quarter of 2011 that 70% of the youths in the program went up a grade level in their literacy, said Hoop Heroes Chairman Rick Dinger.
