The documents will be presented to the entire community in order to receive feedback and input.

 

Study Sessions and Public Hearings

The City will conduct study sessions and public hearings before the Transportation Commission, Planning Commission, and City Council to consider key project documents. Community members are encouraged to attend these meetings.

Why Should I Get Involved?

The City of Glendale is committed to involving the community in the planning process. The General Plan element updates provide residents, businesses, and interested parties the chance to help guide the future of the community. A successful General Plan will reflect the community’s vision and priorities, and we believe that your voice is vital to producing a plan that will reflect your vision for the City’s future. Community input is needed to establish the long-term vision for Glendale and to help identify key issues and priorities.  

How Will My Input be Used?

Public input from every engagement opportunity is meticulously reviewed and documented to ensure that planners, City staff, and decision-makers have a full understanding of public sentiment when updating the General Plan. Public input will be considered throughout the process, especially when creating the goals and policies in each Element.
