The Pasadena City Council on Monday approved an agreement to provide sewer services to two additional homes in La Cañada Flintridge. A number of properties in the hillside area east of Flintridge Prep Academy are served by a Pasadena line, which serves Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy. Agreements have been signed to serve 35 homes in the area, along with a portion of La Cañada High and the Hillside Developmental Learning Center. Added to the agreement on Monday were two more properties, 125 Inverness Dr. and 3715 Normandy Dr. The two properties will pay a capacity fee of $4,600 each to Pasadena, and $2,100 to the county, which administers the district.

Last week, the city of Pasadena adopted me. The city of Pasadena doesn't exactly know that it adopted me, but it did. Bill Paparian, a former Pasadena mayor, pointed out that we've practiced law on the parade route for nearly 30 years and have been active in Crown City organizations, therefore - Ich bin ein Pasadenoid! Two weeks ago, Len and I were appointed to a Pasadena city advisory committee. There are six of us on the committee. The members include Paparian; Bill Thomson, another former Pasadena mayor and current PCC trustee; Ann Erdman, Pasadena's former public information; Harry Kurdoghlian, a Pasadena firefighter; plus me and my husband, Leonard Torres.

The Pasadena City Council asked city staff Monday to study an initiative calling on the city to submit a bid for a professional football franchise that could affect the Rose Bowl. Staff members are to bring back a report in 30 days. City Clerk Jane Rodriguez told the council the initiative, circulated by three council members, received enough signatures to make the ballot. An opposition group known as Pasadena First has been fighting to keep the matter off the ballot. Opponents have centered their views on possible effects to the historic Rose Bowl and on other recreation uses and open space in the Arroyo Seco.

After the recent article in the La Cañada Valley Sun, I wrote this letter in response and am forwarding it to the mayor of Pasadena and the Pasadena City Council. I think La Cañada residents should be concerned about the fate of the Raymond Theatre. Many of us may remember the Raymond Theatre as the Crown Theatre and Perkins Palace. I think Gina Zamparelli, president of Friends of the Raymond Theatre, is right, residents from La Cañada, La Crescenta, Tujunga, Pasadena all the way to Pomona, we don't have a working venue for major concerts, theatre or other events anywhere in the region.

A former assemblyman and a Pasadena councilwoman have announced plans to run for a state Senate seat in the 25th district currently held by Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge). The seat will open up in 2016 when Liu must leave office due to term limits. The district, established during last year's redistricting, includes La Cañada Flintridge, Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena. Anthony Portantino, a Democrat, said Friday that he is getting back into politics because people in his district want him to keep pushing for transparency in government and funding for education.

The Pasadena City Council on Monday adopted the last piece of the Arroyo Seco master plan, covering the central Arroyo, which houses Brookside Park and the Rose Bowl. The central Arroyo plan has been in limbo several years, due to the ongoing debate over the future use of the Rose Bowl. That debate is not quite over, because of an initiative campaign for a public vote among Pasadena residents to allow use of the old stadium for a professional football franchise. The council managed to bypass the football debate by looking at the rest of the central Arroyo, outside the boundary of the stadium.

Wildlife activists prevailed over youth sports proponents this week when the Pasadena City Council voted Monday to reject one of two proposed sports fields in Hahamongna Watershed Park, across the street from La Cañada High School. And the field that remains on the drawing board may well get the boot one day down the road, as the conservationists continue their fight to keep the area behind Devil's Gate Dam as open and wildlife-friendly as possible. Where's the hue and cry, the gnashing of teeth?

The city of La Cañada Flintridge has joined four other cities - Glendale, Pasadena, South Pasadena and Sierra Madre - in an alliance designed to respond quickly and efficiently to the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) underway by Metro and Caltrans related to the 710 Freeway Tunnel Project. The report is expected to be released sometime this spring. Once it is, local officials are expecting to have just 90 days to review the massive document and conduct their own studies in response.
