Glendale Vice Mayor Jamie Aldama said he wants to dispel rumors that the city plans to bulldoze Murphy Park.
Aldama said an initial concept suggested a more modern look, but major changes won’t happen on his watch.
“We’re not losing the park,” said Aldama, who has represented the Ocotillo District since 2014. He is up for reelection this August.
“We’ll always have the park.”
Since late last year, the Glendale City Council has discussed the Downtown Campus Reinvestment Project, which covers city hall, council chambers, an outdoor amphitheater, parking structure, Murphy Park, and two “continuity of operations” spaces at the Bead Museum and the Civic Center Annex.
