As another year comes to a close, it is time to look back at the top 10 stories of 2017 that were most influential, controversial and discussed for the City of Glendale.

The year began with more Arizona Coyotes drama and ended with the majority of the city council ending the city’s partnership with Valley Metro on light rail plans; the entire year showed the city with a major turnaround and massive changes citywide. There was a major economic turnaround, the Tohono O’Odham Nation winning the war over their casino against the state, a shocking local resignation in Congress to join nationwide changes, and the first Final Four in Glendale, among others that moved our readers.

As we close 2017 and look forward to 2018, here are the top 10 stories, as selected by The Glendale Star that made the most noise during the past 12 months.
