La Cañada Flintridge City Council members approved three key licenses that will allow the city to proceed with the Edison Trail. In 2003 the city first adopted a license agreement with Southern California Edison for a trail that would go from the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Indiana Avenue down to Verdugo Boulevard. Those three licenses are for the passive-use park at Indiana and Foothill; for a trail from Foothill to Indiana extending south to the Foothill (210) Freeway, and for a trail from the 210 freeway extending south to Descanso Drive.

The La Cañada Flintridge City Council on Tuesday gave conceptual approval to a plan for use of Southern California Edison property at Foothill and Indiana, and honored members of a committee that worked to develop the concept for the property. A number of possible uses for the land have been considered, including commercial development and parking, but the plan advanced this week is directed more toward passive recreation uses. The city has an existing license for a trail through the property, and under the new concept the trail will link to the Indiana Overcrossing loop now under construction.

A long-awaited state grant to customize a flume over the 210 Freeway so it could be used to complete a trail loop through La Cañada Flintridge was received by the city last week. The $236,000 grant, applied for by the city in 2003, was approved late last month and will come from the state's Recreational Trails Program. The project is expected to cost $295,000, with the city picking up the balance of the tab. "It's a very prestigious grant; only a handful of cities qualify for it," said Randi Strapazon, a member of the city's ad hoc trails committee, which formed three years ago to look for ways to enhance the local trail system.
