Laura Sturza BURBANK -- At not quite 5 feet tall and 97 pounds, Betty Carlson doesn't look like someone who would move trash bins on a regular basis. But every day, Carlson does her part in her condominium's recycling efforts by hauling a container full of discarded junk mail from the mail room to the recycling bin.

DEVELOPMENT REVIEW The council delayed the development of a parcel in the Hillside District for an 11-unit condominium project. The developer of the site said he will work with his architect and neighbors in the area in hopes of modifying the project to gain the council's approval.

In other words, the developer will not have to begin the process from the beginning.
