Laura Sturza AIRPORT DISTRICT -- Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena-Airport travelers can use the airport's valet parking service through the end of Christmas Day for the reduced rate of $13 per day instead of the regular $20 daily rate. With passenger counts down 15% in October and 13% in November, the airport expects to have ample parking available over the long holiday weekend, a Dec. 21 memo said. "Rather than see people migrate to the remote lot while the valet spaces remain empty right across from the front door of the airport, we thought we would give travelers an opportunity to try the valet service out," Executive Director Dios Marrero released in the memo.

Council should rethink parking I see where our council members (less Tom Campbell) are proposing valet parking at Media City Center. This sounds like the old guard of Howard, Flavin & Hastings. If I have to pay for valet parking to shop in downtown Burbank, I will make a trip to Glendale to do my shopping where I won't have to pay for parking. I have driven through Pasadena where they have valet parking and it is a mess. It was my understanding that when they built this humongous complex there would be ample parking.

BURBANK — Bob Hope Airport officials are gearing up for the summer travel season, just one year after an anticipated parking crunch was largely fended off in summer 2006. "Even though we avoided the ultimate calamity of running out of parking spaces per se, there still is a very predictable and reliably heavy pressure on the parking lots at the airport," airport spokesman Victor Gill said. Over the Memorial Day weekend, airport officials had to close four out of five parking lots Friday afternoon because of heavy parking demand, he said.

Molly Shore Saba Mokhtari is frustrated at not being able to speak her mind to school administrators and district officials, so she decided to run for one of the three open school board seats in hopes of being heard. "I think I have great ideas for making some of the little problems in the school better," Mokhtari said. Her two children attend Roosevelt Elementary School, which uses the "early-bird, late-bird" class schedule in first, second and third grades.

Jackson Bell Anticipating a strong summer for travel, Bob Hope Airport officials are planning to hike parking fees at the airport by as much as 40%. Business is returning to pre-9/11 levels, and the competition for parking has slackened, so airport officials want to start charging more for parking by the beginning of the new fiscal year in July. Officials are mulling a price jump between 20% and 40% for the airport's short-term, valet and long-term parking services, said Don Brown, commissioner for the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority.

BURBANK — Bob Hope Airport officials opened a newly paved airport access roadway on Monday as the first phase of a larger project designed to smooth out valet parking operations. The new route, called Avenue B, bisects the Star Park Lot, facilitating more direct access between that lot and the valet parking area, airport spokesman Victor Gill said. The former north-south route required a full-time crossing guard, cut off access to potential spaces and added to the airport's traffic, he said.

BOB HOPE AIRPORT ? The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority approved $13 million in its 2006-07 budget to fund a construction project that will smooth out valet-parking operations at the Bob Hope Airport. The existing operation forces attendants to drive passengers' cars from the valet drop-off area onto the main airport roadway ? which winds parallel to the terminals ? all the way to the Star Park Lot on Empire Avenue and Hollywood Way to be stored, airport spokesman Victor Gill said.

City Council members agree on some downtown parking issues but are undecided on making drivers pay to park.DOWNTOWN BURBANK -- The City Council cautiously moved ahead Tuesday with a downtown parking management plan, even though members could not reach consensus on parts of the proposal, including metered parking. The council directed city staffers to concentrate on certain parts of a proposed parking plan rather than implementing all of its provisions. "We wanted staff to look at ways of phasing in a parking management plan, and that phasing may include valet parking, validated parking in a limited number of structures in downtown and may include meters on San Fernando Boulevard," Councilwoman Marsha Ramos said.
