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.

Next step for Envision Glendale 2040, is it will appear on the Primary Election ballot on August 30, 2016 for consideration by Glendale voters. Be sure to vote in the Primary Election!
