A plan to preserve Burbank's Rancho neighborhood with zoning controls, split-rail fences and equestrian street crossings has finally been approved by the City Council. The council made one last change in the plan Tuesday night, bowing to neighborhood concerns to require hearings for any major future tenant of a former food store on Alameda Avenue. The provision triggered the only no vote.

The Burbank City Council has given preliminary approval to the rezoning of the city's Rancho neighborhood, but went against the recommendations of a citizens advisory committee by adding a department store as a potential use for the site of a former Vons supermarket.

The Rancho area of Burbank, a residential community known for its serenity and its horses, has quietly been turned into a battleground in the Duel Over Disney. Two similarly named homeowner groups, each claiming to represent a significant portion of the Rancho community, are at odds over the proposed $600-million, 1.8-million-square-foot expansion of the nearby Walt Disney Co. that city officials feel could give Burbank a much-needed economic boost.

The Burbank City Council voted Tuesday night to postpone action on a plan to reduce traffic lanes from four to two on Riverside Drive near the Rancho, a unique neighborhood where single-family homes are allowed to board horses. Instead of approving the measure, council members asked city planners to survey Rancho residents about the proposed protection plan, research the effect of lane closure on traffic in the area and bring the plan before them in 90 days.

Soon after the news raced through the Rancho Cordova neighborhood of modest ranch-style houses, a street corner memorial cascaded across the sidewalk. Bouquets. Votive candles. Teddy bears. The street sign was festooned with ribbons and cards drawn by children. "I'll remember you like family . . . ." said one.

A Burbank developer, who since March has had the city's blessing to build an office building on South Washington Street, had to regain that approval this week after officials found the project had been overlooked in the Rancho neighborhood protection plan. The City Council in a 5-0 vote Tuesday granted an exemption from the zoning plan for the 42,000-square-foot office building planned by local Burbank developer Tim Behunin.

It was fully contained about 7:30 p.m., said fire dispatcher David Carman. No injuries were reported, he said.
