Councilmember Bart Turner, Barrel District


Out of an abundance of caution and to support other preventative measures underway, beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020 the City of Glendale is instituting the following closures, suspensions and cancellations:

City Meetings

  • City Council Meeting will be held; the public is encouraged to be viewed through Glendale 11 Online Streaming.
  • Boards and Commission Meetings will be cancelled unless required by law.
  • Community Meetings and Outreach Events in city buildings are temporarily suspended and city staff will not be attending community meetings during this time.

A fifth-generation Glendalian, Bart traces his roots in Glendale to his great-great-grandfather Peter Forney, an Elder in the Brethren Church who, after having visited the area perhaps as early as 1884, moved from Iowa to Arizona to establish a temperance colony at Glendale in 1892. 

Prior to being elected to the City Council, Bart served his fellow Glendale residents in many capacities through a wide range of community boards, commissions, service organizations, and committees—including having served as President of the Glendale Historical Society, Glendale Arts Council, and the West Valley Child Crisis Center, and as Chairman of the Glendale Parks and Recreation Commission. 

Bart is the proud recipient of Glendale Community Council’s Volene Stockham Humanitarian Award recognizing a lifetime of community service and the Glendale Commission on Neighborhoods Spark Award recognizing leadership in neighborhood revitalization in the Catlin Court neighborhood.   Read More
