There is a new single-family home project that is going before the Glendale Design Review Board that we wanted to bring to canyon resident's attention. GOCHA is still gathering more info about this project but wanted to make residents aware of the meeting in case you would like more information.

According to the Public Notice (attached here), the project is a 5,980 square-foot, single-story home with an eight-car garage, pool house and pool on a currently vacant 43,995 square-foot lot. The lot is recessed far back from the street but appears to be accessible near the intersection of Hollister Terrace and Scholl Dr.
