Cleaner streets and increased parking are a few of the perks Magnolia Park property owners are providing to the area this month in an effort to rejuvenate the district.
Property owners in the commercial areas of Magnolia and Hollywood boulevards will contribute $250,000 every year for five years to keep streets clean, parking spaces plentiful and put the mostly quiet shopping area into a more hustling and bustling category through a program the City Council approved in February.
"I think it's a fabulous idea," said Damon Canfield, owner of The Attic Door gift shop on Magnolia Boulevard. "I think it definitely is, and anything trying to make things better is worth it for the people that live in Burbank. I live in Burbank myself and I definitely do notice the difference in the area. I think it's great."
