Watch this short inspiring story about three canyon women who fought a house-flipper’s enormous illegal deck that towered over and threatened their homes below.
It started with a call to the CCEA. A concerned Chevy Chase Canyon resident was worried that slipshod construction on a bluff over their home might come crashing down upon them and their neighbors. After hearing their story, we at the CCEA began advising the homeowners on what to do and who to call. Along with advice, the Chevy Chase Estates Association did assist with a few sharp and strategic communications to the City of Glendale, but the battle was truly won by these three concerned neighbors.
The CCEA offers this video to show what unity and determination can accomplish. They did it and so can you.

Leticia Gonzalez, Chevy Chase Estates Association director, and Ken Batchelor have been honored by the Glendale Fire Department for going above and beyond in their hard work to clear dried brush, a.k.a. fire fuel, from around their neighborhood and community. They both organized the event and did the hard slash and clear labor to make our canyon a little bit safer.
Watch them in action in the video below. Their team included Glendale Fire, The California Conservation Corps, The Glendale Youth Alliance, your neighbors and CCEA board members. Well done, Leticia!
Merry Christmas from the CCEA

Homes were photographed at random and some we miss. We also try to find new displays. If your house has been overlooked, perhaps it can be found in the lights of years past below. Enjoy these beautiful canyon treasures, Merry Christmases (Glendale is so cool, we celebrate two, the 25th and the 6th.), Happy Holidays, and a very Happy New Year from your neighbors at the CCEA.
