Envision Glendale 2040 Approved by Glendale City Council
The 2040 General Plan has been approved for the Glendale City Council. A General Plan can be described as the "blueprint" for the City's future. It represents the community's vision as goals and policies to direct decision-making. Arizona state law requires that each city adopt a general plan addressing 17 mandatory components or "elements": Land Use; Circulation; Open Space; Growth Areas; Environmental Planning; Cost of Development; Water Resources; Conservation; Recreation; Public Services and Facilities; Public Buildings; Housing; Conservation, Rehabilitation, and Redevelopment (currently addressed in the Glendale General Plan through the Redevelopment Element and the Neighborhood Element); Safety; Bicycling; Energy; and Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization. Along with the state-required elements, Glendale's General Plan also includes four elective elements. These are Urban Design, Historic Preservation, Fiscal, and Economic Development.
