Previous Related Council Action
In November of 2018, the City Council gave direction to close the Golf Course after a temporary 90-day period of operation.  On November 19, 2018, the City Council held a Special Workshop to hear public comment.  On December 11, 2018, the City Council issued a resolution R18-189 for the disposition and sale of Glen Lakes.
Community Benefit/Public Involvement
This request supports Envision Glendale 2040 General Plan by providing land uses that will allow the revitalization of a property that was costly to the city and that will enhance existing neighborhoods.  The request also provides connectivity through the introduction of a continuous walking path and public park for the use of surrounding neighborhoods.   
 
In accordance with State Law regarding Major General Plan Amendments, (State Statute 9-461.06), the Planning Commission is required to hold at least two public hearings.  The Planning Commission held three public hearings on: July 16, 2020; August 6, 2020; and August 20, 2020 where the public was invited to provide public testimony.  Prior to the public hearings, the public was invited to two public meetings in May and June of 2019 to provide input on the development of the site and two open houses in December of 2019 and January of 2020 for additional development information.  

On June 25, 2020 the request for the Major General Plan Amendment was advertised in the Glendale Star.

On August 20, 2020 the Planning Commission recommended denial of MGPA20-01.
