Valet Parking

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.

To recoup the costs of the graduation ceremonies at Burbank and Burroughs high schools, officials will now charge $10 per graduation ticket, beyond the handful of free tickets that seniors receive each year. "We've had some years of cuts so the principals are looking at the growing costs of graduation," said Emilio Urioste, director of secondary education of Burbank Unified. The extra tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Burroughs seniors will continue to get five free tickets, while Burbank seniors will get four.

The City Council on Tuesday narrowly rejected a proposed 24 Hour Fitness on Empire Avenue, reversing a decision by the Planning Board on the grounds that the project would have inadequate parking and adverse traffic effects. The council voted 3 to 2 in favor of Crown Realty & Development and Burbank Mall & Associates, which had argued that the proposed 24 Hour Fitness would contribute to gridlocked traffic conditions during peak commute hours and that it failed to meet a series of requirements.

BURBANK ? The year-old development agreement between Burbank and the Burbank-Glendale- Pasadena Airport Authority may hobble a strategy to prevent parking shortages at the Bob Hope Airport during the summer travel season. A letter from the Airport Authority to the city of Burbank asks the council to consider allowing for increased parking in the airport's southwest quadrant ? a triangular parcel near Vineland Avenue and Vanowen Street. But the March 2005 development agreement between the city and the airport forbids the use of the southwest quadrant for public parking for four years.

Changing a lease between the city and the operator of the Castaway Restaurant drew a large crowd at Tuesday's City Council meeting who wanted to voice concerns over traffic, noise and other issues related to the popular hillside eatery. The council delayed a vote on the amended lease with Specialty Restaurant Corp. until Oct. 4 to allow staff members to make changes the council wanted. "In the big picture, they are not major issues, but do impact your business," Mayor Jef Vander Borght said to the restaurant operators.

'Twelfth Dog Night' opens Thursday at Falcon Theatre The Falcon Theatre invites comic anarchy to take the stage Thursday when the Troubadour Theatre Company opens its "Twelfth Dog Night," a madcap combination of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" and the rock 'n' roll of the '70s pop band 3 Dog Night. Songs such as "Joy to the World," "One is the Loneliest Number," and "Just an Old Fashioned Love Song," help tell the tale of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers and their entourage of comic buffoons.

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.

CITY HALL ? Expansion and beautification efforts may pump life into the downtown area, but along with improvements come the inevitable consequence: parking worries. At the City Council's request, the Public Works Department crafted a parking management plan that endeavors to avoid potential parking shortages. The plan relies heavily on more rigid enforcement and improved signage, city parking analyst Jeanne Keeler said. "The structures and on-street parking provide an ample parking supply, but it's mismanaged," she said.
