Bob Hope Airport's new parking structure, meant to replace the 1,000-plus parking spaces lost as the airport builds a new transportation center, opened earlier this month. The structure is being used exclusively by the airport's valet parking service for now, said Dan Feger, the airport's executive director, during an airport authority meeting on Monday. "They are now keeping cars closer to the drop-off point, and it actually helps them deliver cars faster. That's what the customer will see," he said.

Jenna Bordelon BURBANK VILLAGE -- A man said he was carjacked at gunpoint in the parking structure of the AMC Burbank 6 Theatres after a man told him to get out of his sports utility vehicle or he would be shot. The 29-year-old Burbank man told police he had just dropped his brother off on the first floor of the structure when the man approached his vehicle. The driver told police the man brandished a blue-steel semiautomatic handgun and told him to get out of the 1994 Chevrolet Blazer.

I find it hilarious that the director of the Burbank Airport would complain about the fact that more people are dropping off passengers instead of using the parking structure. As bureaucrats have a tendency to do, they raised the prices to make up for lost revenue, instead of lowering the prices to attract more business, like the private sector would. At $31 per day for short-term parking, it's actually cheaper for me to hire a cab to drop me off and pick me up than to park there on a one-day trip (I live 5 miles from the airport)

Burbank city officials approved a 113,760-square-foot office addition to the Nickelodeon Animation Studios lot on Olive Avenue this week, a move company representatives said would help streamline its operations and bring about 450 additional employees to the Media City. Planning Board members voted 4-0 Monday to give developers Accord/BRO Members, LLC the go-ahead to build on a lot next to Nickelodeon's offices, which currently house 300 employees in 120,000 square feet on a 1.5-acre lot. The animation network will then lease all of the units in the new building.

The weekly Burbank Farmer's Market has moved to Glenoaks Boulevard and Olive Avenue to make room for the construction of an ice-skating rink behind City Hall for the holiday season. The market, selling fresh fruit and vegetables, will continue operating from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Saturday, but now it will be in the Community Services Building's parking lot through the holidays, and perhaps permanently if it is a success, said Elaine Paonessa, president of the Burbank Farmer's Market Guild.

I read Ann Sloan's Feb. 25 letter, “Burbank Residents don't want Walmart,” and the first thing that came to mind is the Shakespearean quote from Hamlet, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” It seems that Sloan might have a financial stake in disallowing the citizens of Burbank the right to choose whether they would want to frequent Walmart or any other store. She speaks of the low wages at Walmart, but fails to recognize that most retail is low-wage employment, i.e. Target, Kmart and most of the stores and restaurants in Burbank.

Bob Hope Airport commissioners tabled a $1.5-million contract to design a new scaled-back transit center on Monday after requesting more information from administrators on project financing and how some of the budget numbers were reached. Airport officials were forced to go back to the drawing board last month after construction bids came in between $47 million and $69 million above the center's projected $112-million price tag. The bids surprised officials, who blamed high steel costs and a “fear factor” among contractors that the project could not be built as planned.
