The City Council has approved a subdivision of the historic Jameson Estate. The 10-lot subdivision plan, previously approved by Sierra Madre's Cultural Heritage Assn., requires that the Jameson Trust preserve the Jameson House and two other structures as historic landmarks. New houses will be allowed on six lots and one is reserved for open space. The plan includes creation of Ida May Lane, a street with a cul-de-sac.

Jameson.
