The city of La Cañada Flintridge on Monday painted striping for 53 designated parking spots on Cornishon Avenue, the first step in addressing a litany of concerns aired by residents who live in the immediate vicinity of the sports fields at the former Foothill Intermediate School.
"The parking on Cornishon Avenue itself, adjacent to the fields, wasn't being used efficiently," said Carl Alameda, senior management analyst with the city.
The designated parking spots will ensure that all available street space is being put to good use, Alameda said.
Congestion and insufficient parking are ongoing concerns of residents on Cornishon, just south of Foothill Boulevard, one of the most heavily trafficked areas in the city. The former public middle-school campus is now home to half a dozen private schools and educational centers, including Renaissance Academy and Learning Castle, as well as La Cañada Unified School District headquarters and Lanterman Auditorium.
