The mature trees and rolling greens of Glendale’s Glen Lakes Golf Course will soon be bulldozed to make way for a new neighborhood, if all goes as planned.
The Glendale City Council voted 5-2 Tuesday to move forward with the sale of the golf course land to Towne Development Inc. for $6.5 million. Councilmembers Jamie Aldama and Bart Turner voted against the sale.
The initial plan calls for 173 residences and a surrounding linear city park.
For many Glendale residents who live near the nine-hole course at 55th and Northern avenues, the sale marks a disappointing end to a long, hard-fought battle.
