Have an Eskimo friend looking for a good deal on a truckload of snow? What about your cousin in Arizona wanting to buy ocean front property? Better have them meet my dear friend, Lauren Oakes. She is most convincing. I should know. I believe her wacky, zany stories. Usually. Speaking of snow, Lauren has insisted for years that she once witnessed a group of blind, one-legged skiers expertly traversing the mountains of Mammoth. She claims she observed this while laying flat on her back, having just taken a bad fall herself.

For years we RVed with our friends Lenore and Bill Wilson (also a retired fireman). The following is what happened to them on the way home from camping out at Grant Lake many years ago. Many of you RVes have camped in the High Sierra, so you may have similar experiences to remember. The Wilsons left their camping spot at Grant Lake after "sitting" through many rainy days. When they were about nine miles north of Bishop on Hwy. 395, they came upon a huge traffic jam of RVs, cars and big trucks.

The convenience of parking a recreational vehicle at home between trips may cost La Cañada Flintridge residents hundreds of dollars. In a proposed ordinance, RV owners would have to fork over $730 to undergo a city review that would look at how the storage of the vehicle affects neighbors. Resident David Hotchkin, who has been pushing for a change in how the city regulates RVs, told the City Council on Tuesday that storage of a recreational vehicle is a “privilege.” He asked that they add language in the ordinance that would also relate to how many times a resident might access an RV. “The storing of the RV is one thing, but the continuing access to it is another that might impact neighbors,” he said.

While La Cañada Flintridge officials consider a new citywide regulation for recreational vehicles, a hot spot has been on Tondolea Lane. Resident David Hotchkin and his neighbor Amir Hemmati have clashed over the presence of Hemmati's RV at his home, and Hotchkin has a history of raising the RV issue with city officials. In July 2011, Hotchkin appeared at a City Council meeting to appeal the city's approval of a project on Los Amigos Street that included space for RV parking.

Recreational vehicles are designed for relaxation, but they are creating work for city officials. After receiving complaints about the hulking rigs, the La Cañada Flintridge Planning Commission is considering a measure to further regulate where residents can park their RVs, trailers and boats. Under current law, city residents are prohibited from parking RVs in front of a home, though RVs can be stored anywhere in the rear of a property. They also can be parked in a side yard, as long as they are obscured from view by a fence or wall.

City officials may give residents who own recreational vehicles a grace period before they are required to pay to undergo a mandatory RV storage review. La Cañada Flintridge revised an ordinance earlier this year that requires RV owners who own and store vehicles at their homes to pay the city a one-time fee of $730 for a review, which would include the costs associated with notifying neighbors, holding public hearings and an environmental assessment. But after city officials and residents questioned that fee, that number may dip to $200, and then only after an amnesty period.

The La Cañada Flintridge City Council is expected to decide Monday whether recreational vehicle owners must get city approval before storing RVs on their property. At Monday's 7 p.m. meeting, the council is scheduled to vote on a proposed ordinance that would require residents wishing to permanently store an RV to submit to a review of their property by the city director of Community Development. The director would conduct a site visit to determine if storing the vehicle would negatively impact the views or safety of neighbors.

The La Cañada Flintridge City Council will discuss two laws on Tuesday that would regulate storage of recreational vehicles and the trimming and removal of protected trees. The first proposal would require a tree removal permit to take down any protected tree. The permit would not be needed to remove a dead tree. Under the ordinance, homeowners can trim a protected tree on their property. The city, under the proposed law, will fine residents who damage a protected tree or cause one to die. They will also fine residents who remove a protected tree without a permit or remove a tree in an emergency situation without notifying the city.

The La Cañada Flintridge City Council will vote on approving the updated General Plan tomorrow. Some of the changes to the new plan deal with congestion, traffic, parking and energy consumption. Officials also propose rezoning two areas of the city as part of the plan, Senior Planner Fred Buss said. “We're bringing it up to date,” he said. Director of Community Development Robert Stanley said he expects the plan to be approved since residents and officials have had ample time to review it. The draft was released in December 2010 and the council has held public hearings since last June.
