Updates on Local Projects

This week there are several community updates that I’d like to share.

Two Strike Park: In June, Los Angeles County Dept. of Parks and Recreation started staking out a new walking path at Two Strike Park. The path would have bisected the existing grassy area. Residents spoke up and worked with the Parks Dept. to give feedback as to what would best meet the needs of our residents. A new design has been proposed that allows for better park entrance on the west side of the park. The walkway then hugs the base of the hillside on the north side of the grassy area, tying into the existing sidewalk around the play structure. This design was suggested by a resident and is more closely aligned with residents’ needs. Updates will be made on the website as they are available.

Land Use Committee Meeting: A community meeting held by the Community Standards District featuring the Land Use Committee will be held on Friday, Aug. 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Rosemont Middle School, so please save the date.

CVHS Pancake Breakfast: Please save the date for Sept. 17. Support our youth!

Streetlights on La Crescenta Avenue: L.A. County Dept. of Public Works will be presenting information on streetlights on La Crescenta Avenue at the July 21 CVTC meeting. Proposed lights are for La Crescenta Avenue between Los Olivos Lane and Fairmount Avenue.

Rosemont Middle School Sidewalk Bump-out: Construction has begun and will be completed before school starts. Please use caution driving on Rosemont Avenue.

Speed Studies on Briggs Avenue: L.A. County Dept. of Public Works conducted two more speed studies on Briggs Avenue south of Prospect Avenue. The results remain the same; 85th percentile speed is 38 mph. It is recommended that the posted speed limit signs be changed from 30 mph to 35 mph. A presentation regarding this suggested change will be made at the Sept. 15 CVTC meeting. Residents are encouraged to attend and ask questions.

Skate Park: The skate park is open and enjoyed by the community. Thank you to all those who worked hard to bring us this amazing facility!
