From time to time going up Oakwood and Lynnhaven, I encounter skateboarders zipping down the road. Many are without protection, not even a helmet, and some are on the wrong side of the turn where Princess Anne joins Lynnhaven. Parents, what are you thinking? If your skateboarding kid encounters a car on a blind curve, he or she is going to get hurt. I hope to never read an obituary for a teen boarder on these pages. Roger Bourke La Cañada Flintridge

Despite objections from neighboring residents, the La Cañada Flintridge Planning Commission on Tuesday approved a new 8,032-square-foot house at 5180 Princess Anne Road. The unusual configuration of the lot screens the property from the street, city planner Chris Gjolme said in his report. “In general the site has a somewhat isolated and secluded character, a product of its location at the far end of a quiet residential street and the visual buffering afforded by the mature trees in the front,” Gjolme told the commissioners.

In a public hearing held Aug. 16, resident Sunny Asch returned to appeal a Public Works Dept. staff decision requesting her to remove new improvements to her property that breach public right-of-way at the corner of Princess Anne Road and Valley Crest Street. Following a fire in 2006 caused by a felled power line that scorched the bushes around her home, Asch proceeded with a series of small construction projects to her property to fix the damages. Among the landscape improvements, she recently added a new masonry mailbox, staircase and lighted pillars.

The City Council Monday night sent a planning commission-approved project back to the commission for additional review after a swarm of neighbors showed up at the meeting to appeal the commission?s decision. The project at 5180 Princess Anne Rd. was approved by the planning commission Feb. 10 in a four-to-one vote of a second-floor review on the new 8,032- square-foot house. The replacement house is to be built on the existing home?s concrete pad and meets all of the requirements of the zoning code, with regard to floor area, setbacks and height, according to city staff.

A second-floor review of a proposed 8,032-square-foot home on Princess Anne Road and a proposed three-unit apartment building in the southwest portion of the city will both receive second looks in September as the planning commission Tuesday night continue both hotly- debated projects. The Princess Anne project, which neighbors say is a case of “mansionization,” previously made it past the commission but was sent back by the City Council after neighbors appealed the commission’s approval.
