City of Glendale - City Council - Key Priorities 2013-2014
  • Transparency internally and externally to assure the community that the decisions made for the wellbeing of Glendale are discussed openly with input invited.
  • Arena management, debt service, hockey agreement and enhanced revenues will play a large role in policy formation and financial strategy. The above noted transparency will be vital to gaining community support for decisions necessary to optimize the arena value to the Glendale community.
  • Cooperation among staff and Council as well as collaborative and creative interaction with other governmental and business entities to leverage greater efficiency in service to community and to form mutually productive interactions.
  • Fiscal sustainability encompasses a broad array of comments focused on the need to have a balanced budget with the policies in place to incrementally move in the direction of strength and sustainability. Some hard choices will be needed.
  • Centerline and community events are both part of the character and ambience of Glendale. The City Council is committed to forming the policies necessary to encourage downtown investment and visitor expansion.
  • Service levels inevitably suffer when a weak economy hits so hard for so long. Engaging the public to help keep them informed and confident that the City Council and staff are doing the very best with limited resources is very important. Work to engage the community in maintaining the hometown appearance of Glendale.
  • Creative, innovative and benchmarked ideas must be explored to expand the Glendale economic and image footprint. New ideas and entrepreneurial thinking can make a significant impact of the Glendale future. Encourage and support staff creativity. Consider City Council visits to benchmark communities to seek out best practices and creative successes.
