Pilot Program Cancelled
On Monday, May 18, the City of Glendale will be removing a pilot-programed all-way crosswalk at the intersection of Ocean View and Honolulu. The pilot crosswalk was installed in anticipation of an upcoming capital improvement project on Ocean View that will include road and traffic safety improvements.
Ocean View & Honolulu is one of the Glendale’s top five highest volume intersections and was selected for the pilot program to indicate its effectiveness for pedestrians and motorists for the rest of the Montrose Shopping Park.
The alteration to the crosswalk was originally scheduled for mid-to-late March but was implemented instead mid-February during a time of resource availability. The premature placement did not allow the proper amount of time to advise the neighborhood’s stakeholders. At the Glendale City Council’s direction, the City will be removing the crosswalk. The City of Glendale is utilizing this extended period of time to inform pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists of this change to ensure safety in the intersection moving forward.

Call for Submissions for Design of Welcome Signs
The City of Glendale has partnered with the Friends of North Glendale to create welcome signs on Foothill Boulevard. The signs would be placed at the City of Glendale entry points of Lowell and Pennsylvania avenues. The City of Glendale is seeking input from North Glendale residents and businesses to ensure the art is reflective of the community’s personality and style.
The final design will be chosen by an independent community panel and published in the Crescenta Valley Weekly. It will then be manufactured into a substantial metal (steel, iron…) pole sign and installed in the public right of way.
If interested in participating, contact Jacqueline Bartlow at email@example.com or (818) 548-3155 to request a creative brief, the terms & conditions agreement, and the basic signage guidelines. Designs will be accepted through June 1.
