A mysterious protest sign has appeared in the center of La Cañada. Several alert people in our town, extremely sensitive about unauthorized billboards, signs and posters, especially around our picturesque flower shop, have not noticed the sign on the north side of Foothill Boulevard.

Construction to raise the Town Center from the 13 acres of land bordered by the Foothill (210) Freeway, Angeles Crest Highway, Lillian Court and Foothill Boulevard is expected to end by August with an opening in September. The project was approved almost two years ago on August 7, 2006, and construction has been underway since March of 2007, but Darren Mattix of Mattix Development Partners is positive that they will complete their part in the project on time.
