CITY HALL — Hoping to capitalize on the popularity of the Chandler Bikeway, Burbank officials last week forged an agreement with the state to begin work on a new three-mile path along San Fernando Boulevard. The San Fernando Bikeway would cut north to south, intersecting with the east-west Chandler Bikeway in the heart of the city. The proposed bikeway, at about 12 miles, is expected to expand regional transport starting in Sylmar, extending south through San Fernando and Los Angeles to the Burbank city limits.

Jackson Bell Now that San Fernando Boulevard is undergoing a makeover, city officials have decided on a name change to go with the new look. The districts formerly called Burbank Village, Media City Center, and Civic Center were recently incorporated into one name -- Downtown Burbank. The 212-acre zone has been sectioned into the Mall, Village and Civic sub-districts. With developments sprouting up around the downtown area, including AMC Entertainment Village, Urban Outfitters, Village Walk, and Burbank Civic Plaza, city officials wanted to resurrect a phrase that was once the butt of Johnny Carson jokes.

It was sad to see the aftermath of a MetroLink train collision with a truck at Buena Vista Street and San Fernando Boulevard here in Burbank. My heart goes out to the truck driver's family. I have to say that intersection is one of the most dangerous in Burbank. It's very confusing for drivers, and the stoplights there hold up traffic for so long that people get very impatient. I believe there needs to be an underpass for traffic traveling down Buena Vista Street in order to avoid crossing the train tracks altogether.
