The Burbank Police Department heard loud and clear at the City Council meeting Tuesday evening that residents in the vicinity of the proposed Talaria project are tired of the traffic violations that occur on a regular basis along Alameda Avenue, west of Olive Avenue.
Several residents spoke of the problems including blocked intersections and cars not observing signage. A few residents even showed videos during the City Council meeting of the violations.
In response to the problems, Burbank Police Traffic Enforcement sent several motor officers to the area Wednesday afternoon. Numerous cars were cited for violating vehicle codes. The enforcement detail will continue as needed, according to police sources.
The city is looking at solutions to help the residents along Avon, Lima and California Streets at this time, without waiting to see if the project is passed.
The hearing for the proposed Talaria project is slated to continue next Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers.
