Must be. What else could explain this silly concern?
Additionally, council members agreed to allow single-story dwelling units, unless they are above a garage or part of the second story of a house; let property owners decide whether they want to have separate utility connections for their dwelling unit; and not allow granny flats in any R1-H-zoned area, which mainly pertains to the houses in the Rancho district that allow horses to be kept in those residential areas.
A few residents from the Rancho community and Councilwoman Emily Gabel-Luddy had concerns about allowing accessory dwelling units to be built in the backyards of those homes, where many of them keep their horses.
Like what concerns? They obviously think too that it’s more important to house a horse than a person.
Btw. Why is Gabel-Luddy being allowed to propose, lobby on behalf of, and then vote for a special exemption for her very own Rancho neighborhood? One that (they all obviously think) could be of benefit to every Burbank neighborhood.
Remember when she recused herself on other Rancho issues that came before the council? All of a sudden those old conflict-of-interest policies fly out the window.
