Dear Reader,

Are you enjoying your fantastic summer? I’m reminiscing about one of my favorite childhood memories—fishing in the High Sierras with my family. What’s your most cherished summer memory? I’d love to hear about it!

Now, let’s dive into the exciting world of homeowners insurance. Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Rick Dinger from Crescenta Valley Insurance. We discussed everything from non-renewal notices to the California FAIR plan and even the toughest homes to insure.  Watch all 7 segements

Meanwhile, some interesting housing bills are making their way through the state. The focus is on ADUs (auxiliary dwelling units) or guest houses. The two that caught my eye: 1: AB-976 – This bill aims to prevent local agencies from imposing an owner-occupancy requirement on any accessory dwelling unit. 2: AB 1033 – This bill addresses the sale or conveyance of ADUs. Homeowners will have the opportunity to sell their ADUs by creating condo ownership. Read more details on each bill

Let’s shift gears and talk about Crescenta Commons, a delightful garden at the corner of Rosemont and Orange Avenue. This enchanting spot holds nostalgic memories for long-time residents of La Crescenta. I’m excited to reintroduce a beloved “Free” Coffee at the Commons tradition—announcements on Crescenta Commons Facebook page, so Like Us.

Calling local vendors! I’m searching for fantastic vendors offering amazing after-school activities like tutoring, sports, coding, art, and more. Why, I am planning a Community, Back to School Bash. An evening packed with fun for parents and kids alike! But I need to hear from you by August 5th. Event date Mid-September. Stay tuned for more details.
