GLENDALE : Council to Consider Plan for Downtown

November 12, 1994|STEVE RYFLE

The Glendale City Council is scheduled Tuesday to consider setting long-range plans in motion for the revamping of its downtown.

The council will vote on the proposed Greater Downtown Strategic Plan, a document that paves the way for the development of new business districts, a town center, a theater district, new parks and open space.

If and when the plan is adopted, the council will select and appoint the members of an implementation committee to prioritize the many recommendations in the plan, according to cost and need.

The strategic plan includes measures for improving traffic and parking, and increasing rail, bus and shuttle transit. It also identifies the parts of downtown best suited for new offices, retail, entertainment and a proposed public-private town center.

The strategic plan, which took more than a year to complete, was prepared by Alex Cooper, an urban planner and architect from New York. The $350,000 price tag was paid jointly by the city and Glendale Partners, a business group.
