The council met to receive the mid-year budget recommendations from City Manager Mark Alexander. The projects are a storm drain repair and slope reconstruction on Chevy Chase near Flintridge, and drainage improvement on Castle Road.

La Cañada's foothill areas held their ground this weekend through a series of massive rainstorms that brought inches of rain to a previously parched landscape.

City Engineer Ying Kwan said Monday no emergency calls had come in over the weekend. “We had one drain back up at Chevy Chase [Drive]

by Carol Cormaci After 21 years of flinching with every near-miss on her street, Meredith Reynolds applauded this week's decision of the city council to install sidewalks along the west side of Chevy Chase Drive. Reynolds joined forces with other residents near the teeming Roger Barkley Community Center - and sports fields adjacent to it - to press for the sidewalks. Turned down last November by the Public Works and Traffic Commission, which relied on a survey that showed a majority of property owners polled on the street were not in favor of sidewalks, Reynolds appealed that decision to the council.

by Carol Cormaci With all five members agreeing, the La Cañada Flintridge City Council on Monday said there is a public safety issue where pedestrians meet cars along Chevy Chase Drive but postponed any action on whether or not sidewalks will be installed there. The matter was before them as an appeal of a Nov. 17 decision by the Public Works and Traffic Commission not to recommend to the council sidewalks, but instead to consider a four-foot-wide "walkable path" or "clear space" on the west side of the street between Foothill Boulevard and Descanso Drive.

After listening to several residents voice pros and cons to the installation of sidewalks along Chevy Chase Drive, the La Cañada Flintridge Public Works and Traffic commission turned down the project at its meeting last week. The vote was 4-1, with Commission Chairman Dawn Witte and colleagues Allen Koblin, John Connolly and Dana Hobart against and Commissioner Lucien LeBlanc in favor of the project. However, the commission did approve the installation of a four-foot-wide walkway path above the curb along the west side of Chevy Chase, as well as mid block "chokers" to act as a traffic safety measure.
