LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Sewer District 2 is moving forward in La
Canada Flintridge, and a vote is looming for residents who live in the
The City Council made several nuts-and-bolts decisions at its Monday
meeting to move the district toward a vote, including approving the final
sewer plan and authorizing staff to request bids for the project.
“This is the starting point for implementing the district,” Councilman
Jerry Martin said.
Sewer District 2 is north of Foothill Boulevard, loosely bookended by
Gould Avenue and La Canada Boulevard. The project consists of the
construction of 8-inch local gravity-flow sewer lines and 6-inch lateral
wastewater lines serving 1,355 single-family homes and other properties.
The lines would connect the properties to the recently constructed
Foothill Boulevard main trunk sewer.
Ballots could be mailed to residents as soon as May 8. Residents would
then have 45 days to return them, City Manager Jerry Fulwood said. The
project would need a simple majority vote to pass.
Once construction bids are approved, the final cost of the project can
be estimated, Fulwood said. By doing the planning and bids before the
vote, residents will know the costs involved before committing to the
project. If the project isn’t approved, the design work can be shelved
and used years later if residents decide they do want sewers, Fulwood
The plans cost the city more than $400,000.
