Bow-hunting ban put on hold

CIVIC CENTER -- A ban on bow-and-arrow hunting in the Verdugo

Mountains is on hold until its possible environmental impact can be



The Burbank City Council voted 5-0 Tuesday to suspend the ban,

following opposition from the California Bowmen Hunters. The council

had approved the ban Jan. 21, citing concerns that hunters posed a

safety risk to increasing numbers of hikers in hillside areas.


City officials determined the ban would have no significant

environmental effect and did not submit it for review under the

California Environmental Quality Act. Attorneys representing the

bowhunters’ group have since questioned that decision, as well as the

ban’s potential effect on deer populations.

Council to consider major projects

CIVIC CENTER -- The City Council is scheduled to review two


large-scale development projects Tuesday at its meeting.

Plans for the city’s Development and Community Services Building

behind City Hall will be considered. The 66,000-square-foot building

will offer a one-stop shop for handling most city business. Council

members will also review plans for the Burbank Civic Plaza, which

would include offices, retail businesses and parking.

The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall,

275 E. Olive Ave.

Burbank High participates in rally

MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- Although they did not stage a walkout

during school hours, Burbank High School students joined Wednesday’s

national day of protest against war.

At 3 p.m., a group of students, several teachers and

administrators assembled in front of the high school and walked down

Third Street to City Hall, said Jennifer Rodriguez, one of the

protest organizers.

In the downtown area, marchers passed out fliers to people on the

street. Jennifer and other club members plan an upcoming weekend

event to distribute anti-war literature as well.
