NEW! Glendale Seeks Input on Programs, Rental Fees at Library, Parks & Recreation Facilities
The Glendale Community Services Department has retained Norris Design to perform the Glendale Parks, Recreation and Library Fee Review to provide a comparative library, parks and recreation fee analysis. The study will evaluate public fees associated with special activities, sports programs, and class offerings, in addition to park, ramada, and room or facility rentals at city parks, recreation centers and libraries. Your opinion matters! Two public input meetings and an online and in-person questionnaire provide opportunities to learn more and offer feedback. Click here for details.
