CV Town Council

At our January meeting, I was nominated and confirmed as president of Crescenta Valley Town Council for 2023. This is my great honor and I look forward to leading this very important body. In addition, five winning candidates of the most recent election and our new slate of officers were seated. We congratulate them and thank them for their commitment.

On behalf of the entire Crescenta Valley Town Council, we look forward to continuing our tradition of service to the community. We will continue to look out for your interests, ensure that all citizens have a voice and will always put this community first.

You may have noticed more work being performed on Foothill Boulevard at Dyer Street. In the recent large storm, an underground culvert was damaged. Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Works is making emergency repairs that are expected to last until Feb. 24. During this time, Foothill will remain open. Please observe all posted parking restrictions. This work is essential to help our community stay ready to safely manage future storms.

The CVTC Land Use Committee is composed of community members with experience in various disciplines related to planning and development. They generously dedicate countless hours to tracking major projects as well as issues that impact our community. Currently, the Los Angeles County Dept. of Regional Planning is examining the possibility of eliminating “off street” parking requirements for new multi family developments. This means that new developments wouldn’t be required to provide parking for residents who would be required to park on the street instead. Due to very negative impact on the community, the Council has adopted a resolution against this concept. The County is conducting a public hearing on this on March 1. We urge all interested people to attend. For more information on how to attend the meeting, please see our website (

The Streets and Transportation Committee is led by Councilmember Dede Mueller and is responsible for all concerns related to our roadways including safety and proposed projects. Currently, the Dept. of Public Works is exploring modifications to Foothill Boulevard including the reconfiguration of traffic lanes, curbs, medians and other features. This is called the “Foothill Boulevard Active Transportation Plan.” This is of utmost importance to the community as it impacts the main throughfare that we all utilize on a near daily basis. The County Dept. of Public Works will be at our next general meeting for a presentation and to take questions. We invite all members of the community to learn about this impactful project.

We’ve received multiple traffic safety complaints, particularly related to the area around our schools. We are in the process of addressing these concerns with Public Works, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Dept. and California Highway Patrol (which is responsible for all traffic enforcement in unincorporated Crescenta Valley). We remind everyone to please slow down and observe all traffic laws. The people you are protecting are your neighbors and members of the community.

Although the incident that occurred at CV High School is being handled by GUSD and law enforcement, we would like to remember a fundamental principle in our community. That is that everyone has the right to safety and security. We would like to offer our thanks to those who responded last Wednesday to keep our students safe.

As we begin a very busy year in service to the community, we invite everyone to attend our next meeting at the La Crescenta Library, 2809 Foothill Blvd., on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m.

Chris Kilpatrick, President
