A neighborhood feud that has been waged at La Cañada Flintridge City Hall for more than five years may soon come to an end, with City Council members deciding Monday to broker an easement over a disputed slice of land. Dr. Philip Merritt has been fighting with neighbors and the city to use Windermere Place, a street off Inverness Drive that exists in name only, to access a home he plans to build on hillside property that abuts Hampstead Road. The city-drafted easement proposal would allow Merritt to build Windermere as a private driveway instead, with neighbors also having rights to use it if they agree to share construction costs.

A 30-acre parcel adjoining Pasadena and La Cañada, known as the Hahamongna annex, has been the topic for much debate over the nine years since Pasadena regained ownership of it.

The 30 acres lying between the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Devil?s Gate Dam have been the subject of numerous meetings and planning sessions involving stakeholders from La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena and Altadena.
