leave a comment »

City officials today announced plans to hold a meeting for residents who live near the footprint of a brush fire that swept along the hillsides near the Glendale (2) and Ventura (134) freeways this summer.

The meeting, not unlike the series of city- and county-sponsored forums held in the La Crescenta foothills earlier this year, will go over winter weather preparations for potential debris flows.

City officials will also brief residents on plans to put up concrete barriers, known as K-rails, in the Glenoaks Canyon neighborhood and where to pick up sandbags.

The public meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at the Joe Bridges Club House, 2531 E. Glenoaks Blvd.

For more information on the meeting, call (818) 548-3900.
