Burbank residents pedaled around the city’s Magnolia Park neighborhood on Saturday, popping into stores and restaurants to pick up free treats, and then back onto the sidewalks and streets to continue their bike rides. The riders were taking part in the second annual Magical Magnolia Bicycle Tour — an event organized by the Magnolia Park Partnership, a nonprofit organization that was formed to improve and promote the area, which was named a business improvement district last year.

BURBANK — Residents, city officials and business owners took to the sidewalks Thursday night to tour and tout the revamped version of Burbank Boulevard, which officials said represented a new phase of city development. “This is bringing new life to the boulevard,” said Councilman David Gordon, one of about 25 who joined the mile-long walk. “For years I’ve said it’s been desolate. This is a significant improvement. They did a very, very nice job.” The street-improvement project, a 2.2-mile stretch of Burbank Boulevard between Clybourn Avenue and Victory Boulevard, was completed in March.

I saw something in Burbank last year that left me shaking my head and muttering words the Burbank Leader would not be inclined to print. Driving north on Buena Vista Street between Kittridge Street and Victory Boulevard, a woman with a walker was trudging toward me in the street. I quickly changed lanes to give her extra room and upon passing suddenly realized what the problem was — when water drops started hitting my windshield. An apartment building across from Ralphs had its lawn sprinklers cranked up so high the woman could not use the sidewalk without getting drenched, though she was still getting wet even walking in the street.

John S. Chambers? letter (?Traffic control leaves much to be desired,? Mailbag, March 26) dearly warmed the cockles of my heart. I just wish such letters would make a difference, but unfortunately, they don?t seem to. Judging by other musings to the Mailbag, and simply talking to people around town, there clearly is an issue here, yet the city arrogantly goes about its business like nothing is wrong. Actual case in point: 10:30 a.m. March 15, I turned west off of Glenoaks Boulevard onto Magnolia Boulevard.

BURBANK ? Under budget and on time, a project aimed at sprucing up one of the city?s main thoroughfares is substantially completed, city officials said Thursday. About 400 trees, 11 new street medians and seven new traffic lights have been constructed on a 2.2-mile stretch of Burbank Boulevard between the city?s border with Los Angeles at Clybourn Avenue and North Victory Boulevard. But several minor components still need to be completed. They include cleaning up the sidewalks, constructing an extra signal loop embedded under the street to sense the presence of cars and control the traffic signal and fitting one of the medians with a sculpture bearing the likeness of Dr. David Burbank, officials said.
