Burbank continues to provide a high quality of life for its residents while promoting community engagement, as seen with projects like the Chandler Bikeway, Stough Canyon Nature Center, Robert R Oyrom Park and a new and expanded state of the art Buena Vista Branch Library. In 2005, Connect with Your Community was established with the mission to create opportunities, projects, and partnerships (between residents, non-profits, city employees, etc.) that strengthen the local non-profit and community service agenda.
The City of Burbank is home to twelve historic properties that have been recognized at the national, state, or local level.
