Burbank Viewpoints

Burbank, California – Information and opinion on the most crucial issues facing our city.



Why do we need a new 14-gate replacement terminal and what will it look like?


If you’re going to Burbank on Parade this Saturday, April 23rd, 11 a.m. along Olive from Keystone to Lomita, you’ll have the chance to ask representatives from the airport to show you their plan.  They want to talk to you and hear your thoughts.  Weigh in on the name of the airport just for giggles.

Ever wonder how “that house” was approved?


Copy and pasted from a city correspondence:

Public meeting on Thursday, April 28, 2016 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, Room 104 Community Services Building, 150 North Third Street, Burbank

The comments and concepts from the five neighborhood walkshops and other community presentations were analyzed.  The consultant team and City staff have drafted preliminary options for how the City of Burbank can respond to the recommendations.  All of the information will be presented for review and discussion.  Residents are encouraged to share thoughts about what kinds of changes, if any, should be made to the City’s development standards for single family homes and, if created, how design guidelines should be implemented.

People may continue to participate in the project by downloading the City’s mobile app, Our Burbank for iPhone or Android mobile devices.  As more information becomes available, updates will be posted on the project website:

For additional information please contact Kendall Flint (Consultant),  or at (650) 455-1201.  You can also contact Carol Barrett (Burbank Community Development Department staff), or at 818-238-5250.

Take a City Selfie!
There are additional ways residents can participate and share what makes Burbank special via the Our Burbank mobile app:

  • Take a “City-Selfie” to showcase places and people that illustrate the City’s character.
  • Send the City a “Love Letter” telling us what you love about Burbank.

The City of Burbank will be sharing the letters and photos received via project website and mobile app.


Is Burbank ready for disruption?


We know that many of the real and proposed mixed-use developments pride themselves on retail and hospitality jobs.  While they provide tax revenues, do they provide living wages?  Take 40 minutes to watch this discussion on community sourcing, a new way to maximize time, ease entry into professions, and create new jobs.  Community Sourcing plays to millenials, retirees, and anyone else looking to make money on their own terms.  Here’s a way for small businesses to partner together to better serve our community, and their bottom lines.

Greetings from your Water & Power bill


Burbank has officially saved one billion gallons of water because residents stuck to the watering schedule, took shorter showers, & washed full loads of laundry & dishes. Since BWP is overflowing with gratitude, there will be a public hearing to consider increasing water fees, May 24, 2016 at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers, City Hall.
