The Burbank Hills Community Homeowners Assn. has requested entry and exit gates at the two main entrances of the neighborhood, where Lamer Street crosses Castleman and Wedgewood lanes.
Also, approving the proposal would set a precedent for future development, as there are no other gated communities in the city, the report stated.
The City Council has denied the request three times since 1987, twice citing concerns about restricting access from emergency personnel, the report stated. Most recently, the council denied the gates in 2010 because they did not see a need for them, according to the document.
The board’s recommendation will be passed on to the City Council for review.
