The city of Glendale was recently awarded a $220,000 grant to place nearly 80 new recycling containers on public streets, a major addition to the existing lineup of just nine. Glendale was one of 18 cities throughout the state that won a CalRecycle grant, which will be used to purchase new containers distributed throughout the downtown area and Montrose by early 2016. It's estimated the new bins will collect 18 tons of recyclables a year, said city spokesman Tom Lorenz. Montrose Shopping Park has been without recycling bins for several weeks.
The crosswalk at Honolulu Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard was installed in late February as a means to promote pedestrian safety, but a majority of the Montrose Shopping Park Assn.'s board members said at their monthly meeting that it has so far proved problematic. They voted 4-1 to recommend having it removed. Board President Andre Ordubegian said having red lights in all directions so pedestrians can cross diagonally is creating more traffic backup because cars are having to wait longer. "People are crossing on a red light," Ordubegian said.

A couple of weeks ago, we headed west on the 210 to Montrose to try out a place called Thee Elbow Room, motivated by a Living Social discount coupon and a quick look at the restaurant's website. The twinkling lights on every tree are absolutely magical. All Thee Elbow Room's beers are draft. And when Thee Elbow Room says spicy, it means it! We finally asked for our check. And, yes, I did ask about the "Thee" in their name. But, not to worry, once you've tried Montrose's double "e" Elbow Room, it'll definitely be the one you'll frequent.
