Tobacco and zoning were again the highlights of the City Council meeting as the council Monday night took a second look at ordinances it passed unanimously during first readings at its June 15 meeting. However, although the Tobacco Retail License Ordinance moved forward, requiring a $50 fee from retailers to help pay for planned compliance checks, Downtown Village Specific Plan zoning changes believed to have been approved by the council at the last council meeting took a giant step backward.

Future discussion by the La Cañada Flintridge?s City Council and planning commission concerning zoning restrictions for the Sport Chalet property on the south side of Foothill could decide whether or not developers are able to begin wooing a major food market ? such as Whole Foods, Gelson?s or Bristol Farms to the site. Town Center developer Darren Mattix on Monday night asked the City Council to consider removing a prohibition of food markets greater than 12,500 square feet in that sub-area portion of the Downtown Village Specific Plan.

I am concerned that the city of La Cañada is considering a poorly publicized proposal which reduces home values, favors developers over homeowners and does little to prevent mansionization. The proposed La Cañada R-1 Zoning Ordinance is flawed and for homeowners. This law will have more impact than anything else the Council has considered in recent years. Considering this impact, there has not been adequate public discussion. The Council will be considering these revisions at the July 5 City Council meeting and homeowners need to be there.

Recently the City Council zoned for low-income housing development into La Cañada . I hope that low-income housing units are built right next to these council members so we can see just how much their property values will increase. If the voters elect this same body of members next time around then they should love the consequences of welfare checks, trash can streets, transients hopping, wholesale crime increase and all the wonderful things associated with neighborhood projects.

Given our community's involvement in charity events for the homeless and abused, the recent righteous outcry against our city council members' efforts to comply with state zoning laws is disturbing . LCF should “walk the talk” of what our churches preach every Sunday, namely, “Charity begins at home.” What does it say about us if we pour our energies into keeping out a tiny fraction of the less socially and economically fortunate rather...

One of the most pressing issues facing our community is leaving the station quickly; and without public involvement city officials are on course to significantly overburden our community, reducing our quality of life. California requires all cities to share the weight of housing supply shortages by zoning for low-income housing and shelters. While we have an obligation to comply with the law and a social responsibility for those in need, our city can only absorb a reasonable amount of said burden.

It’s soon going to become more difficult for minors to obtain cigarettes in this town, thanks to a tobacco ordinance passed unanimously Monday night by the La Cañada Flintridge City Council. The ordinance was created by the city of La Cañada Flintridge’s Youth Council, after two years of research, drafting of the Tobacco Retail License ordinance, and through involvement in a city-wide sting operation that showed that seven of the 15 tobacco retailers in La Cañada, when approached by undercover youths — including the former Miss La Cañada — were willing to sell tobacco to underage youths.

Slow traffic, ?Not a problem.? Rude customer, ?That?s all right.? These are some of the positive attitudes that members of La Crescenta Church of Religious Science Center for Spiritual Living are attaining as a part of their Complaint-Free Zone program. ?I think that this is such a profound reminder of what a waste of time complaining really is,? said church member Sherry Robb. Passing by the church, there is no question that there is an enticement to wonder what the banner outside with a frog stating ?

After hearing from some residents who remain opposed to the idea , the City Council on Tuesday moved ahead with an updated zoning ordinance that will allow for 343 affordable housing units. State law requires every city in California to comply with laws that mandate specified zoning for low-to-moderate income housing. La Cañada Flintridge is required to zone for affordable housing that comprises three different types: mixed use, multiple family residence (R-3), and residential planned development zones.

Over the past few weeks, I have heard and seen a great deal of distorted and outright incorrect information about the proposed changes to the city's Zoning Code and Housing Element regarding low- and moderate-income housing. Perhaps you also have heard some of this misinformation, so I am writing to help clarify the situation and dispel any misconceptions. Below are the facts you should know before coming to conclusions. The city is required by state law to adopt zoning that allows for development of housing that meets our state-required allocation of low- and moderate-income regional housing.

For years a group of dog owners in La Cañada Flintridge have walked beside their fluffy companions without leashes on a trail in the city, an action that is unlawful. Now they are asking the city for a designated off-leash area after a recent complaint from one resident. Josh Potter said he has been walking his Rhodesian ridgeback in an area of the Cross Town Trail between El Vago Street and Foothill Boulevard for 19 years. “I don't think it's unreasonable for the council and the city to set aside this very small zone for off-leash canine pleasures,” he told the City Council on Monday night.

After Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's campus revamp master plan stalled this summer, the school regrouped and now is asking the city to create a specific plan zone for its property. Margaret Kean, Sacred Heart's director of development, said that with a specific plan, the school will be better able to achieve its own goals while accommodating the concerns of local residents and abiding by city rules by establishing up front with the city what the rules should be for its property.

PASADENA — Thirty-six games into the season and Arroyo Seco Saints Coach Aaron Milam still can't get an accurate read on his team. Milam might have gotten a better read after the Saints suffered a 6-5 loss to the Playa Vista Orioles in an elimination game of the Palomino Southern California Regional Baseball Tournament on Monday night at Jackie Robinson Field. "We are very bipolar when it comes to playing defense," said Milam, whose team committed four errors and will be the third seed from the Southern California Regional in the Palomino West Zone Tournament in Compton beginning Friday.

La Cañada businesses, churches and residents are joining an international effort to bring relief to millions of Haitians affected by a massive earthquake that struck last week near Port-au-Prince. While figures continue to fluctuate, United Nations officials now estimate that as many as 200,000 people were killed, and another 250,000 were injured in the 7.0 magnitude quake that struck Jan. 12. Early rescue and relief efforts were hampered by a lack of existing infrastructure in Haiti, as well as the severity of the damage.
