CITY HALL — Longtime homeowners Monday successfully blocked a proposed parking lot in the Toluca Lake area sought by Lakeside Golf Club. The Planning Board voted 4 to 0 to deny converting a half-acre of the privately owned country club into a 74-space parking lot, essentially ruling that it was incompatible with the neighborhood. Board member Emily Gabel-Luddy was absent. Zoning exceptions were required for the project because the off-street lot was proposed in a residential area and failed to meet the city’s landscape and shade requirements, associate city planner Jesse Brown said.

The dark green mesh fence that surrounds the pool at Verdugo Park belies a busy schedule of prep work before heavy construction on new facilities starts - a day that can't come soon enough for visitors grappling with the temporary loss of some parking. Sean Corrigan, the city engineer overseeing the project, said work currently includes “isolating utilities” in the upstairs recreation center - such as water lines - so the facility can remain open to the public. “As soon as that's complete, we will start knocking down walls,” Corrigan said.

Newly appointed Burbank Unified School District Supt. Stan Carrizosa attended a Board of Education study session Sunday where district leaders began plotting a new era after a year of tumultuous leadership changes.
