I don’t normally write to newspapers, but am compelled to do so about the Burbank City Council, its decisions and direction.
As I wait at the corner of my street, Lima and Verdugo, and watch 30-plus cars go by before I can turn, I look far and wide and see no bikes — in fact, I can count the number of bikes I’ve ever seen on Verdugo on two hands. What kind of decision was it to place bike lanes on Verdugo?
I look one block over to what used to be a great gathering place for our youth, Verdugo Pool, and hear the fuzzy reasoning for its ongoing closure coming from the city. Millions for a golf center and four years of no pool for our youth.
