Glendale Council Tentatively OKs a 3rd Downzoning

August 17, 1989

The Glendale City Council gave preliminary approval Tuesday to the third proposal in three weeks by resident groups requesting zoning changes that would forbid apartment construction in their neighborhoods.

The council voted to set public hearings for a group of 10 homeowners wanting to turn 18 multifamily-zoned properties in the 300 and 400 blocks of Mission Road into single-family lots.

"The residential neighborhood's topography is hilly; most land parcels are small, and the streets are ill-equipped to accommodate the increased parking and traffic demands," City Planning Director John McKenna said in support of the proposal.

The council is encouraging voluntary downzoning of neighborhoods from apartment to single-family zoning to deal with the city's population explosion.
