Fighting for a passable path

Tuesday February 13, 2001

Glendale Path, as seen from Fairlawn Drive, runs three blocks west to the La Loma-Glandale Park. It is not passable in its entirety. Path  

aficionados from the Berkeley Path  


Association say it should be. They want the path easily  

negotiable not only for folks out for a stroll and those  

walking to town, but for emergency  

situations. They point out that there is a need for east-west escape routes from the hills in case of fire.  

Glendale Path was put on a list of  

priority paths for upgrades after the 1991 hills fire, but has not been maintained. Upgrades to the Glandale Path are on tonight’s council agenda.
