The La Cañada Flintridge City Council will return from its summer break on Monday and vote on whether the city should move forward with the long-discussed Ultimate Destination Pocket Park. At the first meeting since Aug. 6, the council will decide whether to approve city staff's environmental report on the project and whether to apply for grant funding from the county. The Ultimate Destination is a lookout point in Cherry Canyon offering views of the San Gabriel Valley, San Gabriel Mountains and La Cañada Flintridge.

The La Cañada Flintridge City Council moved ahead with several city projects and actions during its relatively short council meeting Tuesday night. The meeting was the first of the new year and included updates on city projects as well as information on the city?s plan to decrease the peafowl population. In an update by Kevin Chun, the city?s director of administrative services, the council learned that following a count of peafowl within the city, that number was reduced during the month of December through trapping from 40 to 19. This after the Oct. 20 council meeting, at which the council directed city staff to reduce the number of peacocks and peahen in area neighborhoods to accommodate resident complaints of health and safety concerns with the overpopulation of the birds.

With all the events and activities around town this week ? involving stringing of lights, decking the halls, carolers caroling and visits from St. Nick ? it?s easy to see: Christmas has come to La Cañada Flintridge. One of the most festive traditions to welcome in the holidays in La Cañada will be the 13th annual Glenola Park Tree Lighting Ceremony, which blends the warmth of hot apple cider and cookies served by Girl Scouts Troop 221 with carol singing, special music provided by resident Otis Hutchins, a canned and non-perishable food collection for area needy, and the Noon Kiwanis Club?

From the Editor's Desk by Carol Cormaci This week's news that La Cañada Properties has tapped Darren Mattix to develop its acreage in the heart of the downtown commercial area should be welcomed on all fronts. Mattix is a local man who participated in the community workshops that preceded the November 2000 adoption of the Downtown Village Specific Plan. He's lived here for nearly a decade, has upscale retail development experience in Beverly Hills, and a warm personality that was sorely missing in the last Sport Chalet development go-around.

La Cañada Flintridge is in solid financial shape, but the city is planning to toe the line on expenses in next year's proposed General Fund budget of nearly $10.6 million. Both revenues and expenditures are estimated to stay within 1% of the 2011-12 budget year. City Manager Mark Alexander's report describes the plan as a “hold-the-line” approach toward city operations, in part because state finances remain in shambles, with legislators and the governor negotiating over a multibillion-dollar deficit and pegging their hopes on voters approving a $6-billion tax initiative on the November ballot.

Years after she first dreamed it, Liz Blackwelder may finally see a water fountain for horses and humans at the Ultimate Destination lookout point in Cherry Canyon. Just don't call it a park. The La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted 5-0 Monday night to approve the proposal and move forward with construction on the condition that the project is no longer called the Ultimate Destination Pocket Park. Several residents said they oppose building a park in the canyon. The Ultimate Destination, part of the 12-mile loop trail that encircles the city, is a wide spot in the Cherry Canyon trail offering views of the San Gabriel Valley, San Gabriel Mountains and La Cañada Flintridge.

LA CRESCENTA — This year's Annual Arbor Day event, held last Saturday at Two Strike Memorial Park, was a poignant celebration. Those in attendance were painfully reminded of the ultimate sacrifice a local family made, having lost their son who was serving in Iraq. Hosted by Crescenta Valley Town Council and the L.A. County Department of Parks and Recreation, the day's focus was on Nick Steinbacher, a resident of La Crescenta who had been in Iraq only a short time when the vehicle he was traveling in was hit by a road side bomb on December 10, 2006, ending his life at the age of 22. Although somber in presentation, the day was a time not just to mourn the loss of a community hero but to celebrate this young man's love of life, dedication to his country and the honor that he has brought, not only to his family but to his hometown.
