Can we get a little help on Cordova?
The Burbank Leader states that the City Council approved measures
Tuesday night to lessen parking in a residential neighborhood.
City staff members recommended expanding permit-only parking to
Lima, Cordova and Avon streets. Permit parking already exists on six
other streets in the neighborhood.
The only permit parking on Cordova is in the 800 and 900 blocks
near the Roosevelt Elementary School. We hope the expanding of
permit-only parking is for the 1000 block of Cordova as we have not
received any help with our parking problems. Other streets around us
all have at least two-hour parking restrictions.
Our block is used by employees for businesses on Hollywood Way and
Magnolia Boulevard for up to 10 or 12 hours each weekday, even though
they have parking behind their facilities. We cannot even park in
front of our own residences, and some will park partly into our
driveways making it difficult to get in our out of our garages.
The only parking relief we get is on Cordova Street each Tuesday
and Wednesday, when there is no parking from 8 to 10 a.m. for street

I'd have voted 'no' on airport
If the airport agreement had been put to a vote, I'd have voted
against it. The city is trying to force a larger airport -- whether
its size of terminal or the size of the property that the airport
controls -- down the throats of the citizens of Burbank who want zero
growth. That's why we voted for Measure B.
