I came across an article in the Burbank Leader that both concerns and infuriates me. (“Split council OKs transitional living homes,” April 27).
I was under the impression the Burbank City Council worked for the betterment of our community and our residents. Imagine my surprise when the council voted to change the zoning code in Burbank, thereby allowing transitional and sober-living facilities in residential areas of our city. Isn’t this something the residents of Burbank should have voted on, or at the very least had a say in?
Three council members decided the possibility of future grant funds was more important than the safety of residents and the ambience of our still beautiful city. This is unfortunate and completely unacceptable.
