Calabasas traffic work backfires



The City of Calabasas was trying to improve traffic flow when it recently made expensive changes to the two intersections of Parkway Calabasas and Paseo Primario.

The new island and the new peninsula are full of black tire marks, and the new curbs are chinked from drivers understandably running […]

Walk this way



This week, I had the pleasure of walking my 6-year-old grandson to Chaparral Elementary School in Calabasas. He lives about 25 minutes away, and part of the walk required climbing a steep incline. We did it slowly and stopped along the way to literally “smell the roses.” By the time we were 15 minutes from school, we were no longer […]
