The Glendale City Council on Tuesday approved the use of two city-owned lots next to Pacific Park for a nonprofit child-care program to benefit low-income families.
Child, Youth and Family Services, a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles that runs Glendale's federally funded Head Start program, will lease the south Glendale property from the city's Parks and Recreation Department for five years.
Under an arrangement with Glendale's Community Development Department, the child-care program will serve 60 children in two modular classrooms on the site. The city will use $50,000 in community development block grant funds to landscape the lots, which will become a children's play area when the city eventually expands Pacific Park.
Mary Beth Lakin, director of the program, said city officials will help find more permanent housing for the program when the lease runs out.
