Annual Meeting

GOCHA Annual Meeting Wednesday, Sept 11, 7:30pm

We hope everyone can attend the Glenoaks Canyon Homeowner's Association ("GOCHA") Annual Meeting on Wednesday September 11th at 7:30 pm. The meeting will be held at Glenoaks Park in the Joe Bridges Clubhouse.

Between the recent “Colorado Fire” last month that threatened many homes in the canyon and the ongoing developments at the Scholl Canyon Landfill, it is more important than ever to come together as a community.

Please join us at the Annual Meeting to discuss lessons learned from the recent fire and the steps GOCHA is taking in preparation for potential future events in conjunction with our local fire and police departments.

The GOCHA team has also put together an informative presentation about the proposed Biogas Project at the Scholl landfill which has us concerned for a number of reasons. Our two presenters are well qualified for this role. Board Member Marie Freeman has become a recognized expert on all aspects of the Scholl Canyon Landfill and has done an outstanding job keeping us informed about what is going on. Board Member Justin King, fairly new to the Board, has quickly come forward at this time to offer his expertise as an environmental scientist. We are so proud that their recent presentation to the Glendale Environmental Coalition won GOCHA not only their support, but the support of the Sierra Club! This presentation will be enlightening and hopefully will inspire you to get involved in this project that involves all of us here in the canyon.

I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday night. And if you can’t attend, please consider contributing to our Disaster Preparedness Program or the Landfill Legal Defense Fund.

Mayor Najarian Addresses Canyon Residents at GOCHA Annual Meeting

Mayor Najarian

Mayor Najarian

On Wednesday, September 16th, Mayor Ara Najarian addressed a lively crowd of Glenoaks Canyon residents at the GOCHA annual meeting held at the Joe Bridges Clubhouse. The mayor talked about the growth in Downtown Glendale and how the city council has focused on the downtown area so that they could limit the growth in the hillside communities like Glenoaks Canyon.

Najarian went on to say that there will be 4,000 new apartment units available in downtown over the next twelve months. With that will come new restaurants and nightlife. The downtown region is flourishing although there is concern about additional traffic that will impact the area. There is also concern that the units being developed are apartments which will cater to more transient residents. Some of these apartments will be renting for up to $4,000 per month which will most likely not attract young families which is what the city wants. 

The mayor also brought up that there will be a new transportation measure coming before voters in the next year that could provide the funds for a light rail system to connect the Orange and Red lines (Pasadena and North Hollywood) with two stops in Glendale.

There was a lot of dissension among the residents at the meeting towards the mayor and city council for allowing this kind of "irresponsible" development to happen.

Residents also asked the Mayor and Steve Zurn who was also in attendance about the Glendale water rate hikes as well as the Scholl Canyon Landfill. There were really no satisfactory or definitive answers coming from the city on either topic. The landfill expansion continues to be evaluated but nothing concrete has been discussed.

GOCHA also awarded Mark and Veronica Tharp with its annual resident appreciation award for all that they have done for our community, most notably organizing the annual dog parade and being great neighbors. Congratulations Mark and Veronica!
