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.

With the new school year soon to get underway, a project to install sidewalks on La Cañada Boulevard between Olive Lane and Salisbury Road is awaiting action on possible state funding, City Manager Mark Alexander said this week. The project was originally coupled with construction of a student loading zone at La Cañada Elementary School, but that part of the project was completed in December at a total cost of $159,000. The sidewalk project, first proposed in 2004, has drawn a mixed reaction from residents along the route.

La Cañada Flintridge residents have to remember that horses have the right of way on city trails under a new ordinance adopted by the City Council. Pedestrians and bicyclists must yield the way to equestrians under the ordinance. Bicyclists must also yield the right-of-way to pedestrians. The council adopted the ordinance as an addendum to the trails master plan that is being developed. They cover trails owned by the city and those under other ownerships, including the county.
