It’s that time of year again when our neighborhood ghouls and ghosts come out to haunt Hollister Terrace. Once again, GOCHA and the wonderful people on Hollister Terrace will make for a safe and family friendly night of fun. Like in years past, the 2300-2400 block of Hollister Terrace (between Edwards Pl. and Tryon) will be closed to non-residential vehicles between 5:00pm and 9:00pm on Sunday, October 31st. So put on your costume (come on parents, you too!) bring the kids, and take a stroll down Haunted Hollister Terrace to enjoy some spirited decoarations, games, special events and lots of fun. We hope to see you there.

In case you didn’t get a chance to read the Echo that was dropped off at your house, or if you are a former Glenoaks Canyon resident that wants to keep up with the goings on in the neighborhood, you can get the digital version of the most recent Echo here:
This story was sent to Joan Morris, GOCHA’s President. We thought it would be a nice story for the website. Enjoy.
Years ago they say, a bear escaped the LA Zoo and found his way to a back yard in Glenoaks Canyon. He survived on homegrown avocados. The mystery continued when they say he was chased to the hills by the local wildlife: coyotes, skunks, and possums, never to be seen again. It is also rumored that the “Glendale Bear” may have been adopted by a local canyon family, and lived his life out with them disguised as a 20-lb poodle. The neighbors memories are “fuzzy”…but remember the said growling poodle participated in the annual BOW WOW POW WOW and enjoyed free pancakes at the homeowners breakfast. It was also suspected that the “Glenoaks Bear” appeared as himself at the Halloween Block Party this past year! Some say they recall the poodle enjoying walks in the canyon with his owner, who always wore a black baseball cap. Fact or fiction?? —– what really happened no on knows for sure; but the legend continues……
Know of any more canyon stories. Send them in and we’ll put them on the website. Send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Action Alert: Vote to Terminate Beeline Shuttle This Tuesday at the Glendale City Council Meeting
Due to low ridership, the Glendale City Council is voting to terminate the BeeLine Shuttle in Glenoaks Canyon this Tuesday, Oct. 5th. Public transportation into Glenoaks Canyon has been provided continuously since the 1930s and it is a service that we hate to lose. Please help save this important canyon resource by attending the city council meeting and speaking out in favor of keeping the Beeline.
As mentioned at our GOCHA Annual Meeting on September 22nd, the City of Glendale is now considering removal of all public transportation in our Glenoaks Canyon. The Transportation Department submitted their recommendation to remove Line 13 to the Glendale City Council for their final decision to permanently stop all public transportation up Glenoaks Blvd.
GOCHA has been advised that the most effective method of communication would be to speak during Oral Communications* at the City Council Meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2010 at 613 E. Broadway, 2nd Floor. The regular business agenda starts at 6:00 PM. Please try to attend this council meeting.
Please contact Angela Vukos at (818) 247-2781 or via email email@example.com if you will be able to attend the City Council meeting on Tuesday. Thank you for your support.*ORAL COMMUNICATIONS (Per Mayor Policy – to follow after all other Agenda Items) Discussion is limited to items NOT a part of this agenda. Each Speaker is allowed 5 minutes. Council may question or respond to the speaker but there will be no debate or decision.
