After developer Farshid Khosravi denied a local community group the right to measure and document his proposed three-story mixed-use building on Foothill Boulevard in Glendale, the group went ahead and did the measuring themselves, reports the Glendale News Press. "Glendale police and fire officials arrived at the former site of Foothill Building and Lumber at 3522 Foothill Blvd. about 9:30 a.m. Sunday to find David Meyers, a member of the Crescenta Valley Community Assn., trying to use a rented boom lift to set height-measuring balloons according to the proposed plans for the three-story building. He and several other members of the association were told to vacate the property and shut down their operation, but no citations were issued." In earlier articles, Meyers has stated his requests to get the measurements is simply to show off the scale of the building. “What we’re trying to do is give the public the information they need as to exactly how high it will be,” Meyers said.
