Glendale’s top officials must publicly announce when they receive an offer from someone wanting to buy land the city owns under a new policy adopted by the Glendale City Council.
The change is meant to add transparency to the city’s process for selling land.
It has been a long time coming.
A few council members have been pushing for the creation of a formal policy that dictates how the city sells land since September 2018, when the council sold land under a process that some inside and outside Glendale criticized as lacking transparency.
Shortly after, Councilman Jamie Aldama asked city staff to draft a policy that would create a more public process for city-owned land sales.
