Dozens of residents and business owners spoke during the council meeting, with most of them in favor of the project. Also, many of them said the First Street Village project is something Burbank has needed to offer those who work but do not live in the city as a housing alternative.
“If we want people to serve the community, we have to welcome them to join the community,” said Lee Wochner, chairman of the Burbank Chamber of Commerce. “We have to provide a place for them to live, and currently, there’s no place for our expanding workforce to live here in Burbank.”

The thought of $2500 a month apartments (on the low side) satisfying any “Burbank” need is insane. No one in their right mind who could afford such a ridiculous amount would want to either:
