Food Truck Party on the Green 2023

Chevy Chase Canyon, Glendale, CA, Food Truck Party on the Green with families and friends.

It was a grand old time on the green!  Tons of fun, families, friends, great music, an enchanted setting, and oh those food truck treats, a wonderful time was had by all.  The Chevy Chase Estates Association teamed with the Chevy Chase Country Club to throw our annual Canyon Party-On-The-Green Food Truck Extravaganza.  Hard to tell who had the best time, the grownups, or the kids.

Protect Your Pets from Canyon Wildlife

We sadly continue to notice the “lost pet” posters up and down the Canyon neighborhoods.  Living in our Canyon is indeed special, but we share it with wildlife and some of the wildlife can be harmful to dogs and cats.  We offer the following to help keep our pet friends safe.

  • Don’t let your dog or cat roam outside of the house.

  • Always leash your dog when on a walk.

  • Have your pet chipped, so it can be identified if found and turned over to a vet or the SPCA.

  • Consider attaching an AirTag style tracking device to your pet’s collar so they can be located via smart phone.

  • NEVER feed wildlife.

  • Don’t have pet food or water dishes outdoors.

  • Keep your yard clean of pet poop.

  • At your Vet’s advice, vaccinate your pet especially to guard against rabies from animal bites.

Annual Meeting Recap

86th Annual Meeting!

CCEA annual meeting Glendale,CA.

After two years meeting virtually on Zoom, canyon neighbors gathered in person at the Chevy Chase Estates Association’s 86th annual meeting.   It was beyond wonderful to have everybody back together again!  And just like before, the Chevy Chase Country Club was the perfect home to welcome canyon friends and neighbors for an evening of catching up, laughter, refreshments, good cheer, and fascinating speakers.

CCEA annual meeting Glendale,CA.

First up were Glendale’s new Fire Chief Timothy Ernst, and new Chief of Police Manuel Cid.  Both men laid out their visions and goals, as well as their backgrounds and passions that led them to the helm Glendale Fire and Police.

Our featured speakers from the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy were Tim Martinez and John Howell who gave a presentation on the wildlife corridor that passes through Chevy Chase Canyon. They explained how our canyon passage links to other corridors that crisscross The Southland, and the conservancy’s mission to locate and preserve strategic parcels of land so that these vital wildlife pathways are never roadblocked.

A Deck Too Far

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.

CCEA Director Honored by Glendale Fire!

Leticia Gonzales and Ken Batchelor receive award from Glendale CA Fire Department.

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.

Wild Oak Survives Wild Oak Attack

It appears the huge tree’s roots just gave out.

On a rainy night last week, a century old wild oak came smashing down just feet away from crushing our canyon’s beloved Wild Oak Café.  We’re sad to see the grand old oak fall but the Wild Oak Café survived the near miss and served up breakfast that morning without missing a beat. Drop by and check out what’s left of the humongous stump! (Top right arrows for full size pix)
