From Save Burbank Neighborhoods:

“This Tuesday, March 18th, join Save Burbank Neighborhoods and residents from across the city in bringing the Community Meeting to City Council!  In January, the City of Burbank passed a Housing Element that paves the way for unlicensed and temporary care businesses to enter residential neighborhoods.  And they did so without legally noticing the Burbank community.  Tell City Council that voters, tax payers, homeowners, and residents are “significant economic sectors” that deserve to be legally noticed and informed.  Take a stand for government transparency and accountability.

Remind City Council that our single-family residential neighborhoods are sacred spaces.  They should be protected from corporate business encroachment and zoned for long-term residency.  Unlicensed, for-profit rental businesses do NOT belong in single-family zones.  Ask Council to take immediate steps to protect the safety of our families, the character of our communities, and the value of our properties.  City Council needs to act NOW to limit unlicensed care facilities and for-profit rental businesses from setting up shop next door to family homes.

Wear red, or your new Save Burbank Neighborhoods T-shirt, to let City Council know that you stand for neighborhood preservation and government transparency.  Speak up or sit tight.  Your presence lets our City Council know that this issue is important to Burbank citizens!  See you there!

WHEN:  Tuesday, March 18th @ 6:30 p.m.

WHERE:  City Council Chambers, Burbank City Hall, 275 E. Olive Ave., Burbank, CA 91502

As per community request, Save Burbank Neighborhoods T-shirts will be available for sale before and after the Council Meeting for $7 each.

Can’t make the meeting?  It’s not too late to send a letter.

    Carol — you are right! Council meeting starts at 6pm. There are some announcements and traditional opening business that has to be done at the start of the meeting that may take 20-30 minutes. You can see tonight’s Agenda here: http://burbank.granicus.com/GeneratedAgendaViewer.php?view_id=6&event_id=98

    Item “L” is Public Comment time — you can fill out a yellow card when you arrive and turn it into the clerk seated in front of the council, and they will call your name when it is your time to speak. You can speak for 5 minutes. Or you can just take a seat and show your support by being there!
