Road-related discussion slated for Monday's LCF Council meeting

La Cañada Flintridge City Council members will meet Monday at City Hall to discuss several topics of interest to residents.

In response to numerous complaints about the frequent stops, long red lights and traffic delays that drivers face at and around the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and Angeles Crest Highway, the council will consider funding a $68,000 study on how to improve traffic flow.

Another road-related contract up for approval, this one closer to a $250,000, would widen Alta Canyada Road as part of bikeway improvement efforts there and on Foothill.

The council will also be addressing the removal and replacement of protected trees.

The city is proposing to adjust fines for those who violate local tree protections and to codify the number and size of trees that residents who obtain a tree-removal permit would be required to plant in place of protected trees.

The new fines for illegal tree removal would range from $1,620 for a 12- to 16-foot tree to $33,750 for trees reaching heights of 33 feet or more.

The meeting begins at 6:15 p.m. with a special study session to update council members on their roles during a public emergency and the duties of city staff, City Manager Mark Alexander said.

The regular meeting begins at 7 p.m. City Hall is located at 1327 Foothill Blvd.
