The Planning Board on Monday is slated to consider a proposal to add gates to a residential neighborhood in Burbank’s hillside, marking the neighborhood’s fourth attempt at such a request.
The Burbank Hills Community Homeowners Assn. has requested entry and exit gates at the two main entrances of the neighborhood, where Lamer Street crosses Castleman and Wedgewood lanes.
City officials have recommended the board deny the request, citing safety concerns. For example, the gates could slow down response times or cause evacuation delays during an emergency, according to a city report.
