La Cañada Flintridge City Council members gave the green light to a variety of public projects and doled out money to several community groups on Monday while keeping the budget for the next year relatively conservative. City staff recommended that council members approve a $11.2-million budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year,  supported by $13.6 million in reserves. Mayor Laura Olhasso was comfortable enough with that financial cushion to recommend increasing projected property tax revenues for the year by $12,900.

A long-running flower shop in the city is looking to move back to Foothill Boulevard, where the business first opened in 1959. Edward Eiji Tomita and Hannah Tomita ran Eiji's Florist for many years on Foothill in a strip mall where the Flintridge Proper restaurant stands today. After a fire caused damage to the property in the 1980s, the Tomitas moved to their current location on 4534 Rinetti Lane. Their daughter, Lisa, now runs the shop.

On a recent Saturday night at Flintridge Proper, well-dressed couples and multi-generational families occasionally left their tables or bar stools to talk to people they knew across the room. The 3,000-square-foot La Cañada Flintridge bar and restaurant feels more like the inside of a neighbor's living room than a place that serves oysters and champagne cocktails. Two separate rooms evoke two different atmospheres - one a library with historic memorabilia and photos, the other a chic lounge with tall, custom-made chairs and bartenders in suspenders mixing up vintage cocktails.
