Posted

Despite pushback from some Glendale residents, Glendale shut down Glen Lakes Golf Course, one of two municipal courses in the city, and sold the land to a housing developer. The specifics on the development to replace the course are still up for discussion.

The Glendale Planning Commission will consider a general plan change and a rezone Thursday that would pave the way for the developer, Homes by Towne, to construct a 173-home single-family housing development on the 43-acre lot northeast of 55th and Northern avenues. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Glendale Civic Center, 5750 W. Glenn Drive. Watch the meeting live or later at the city's YouTube channel or Facebook page.

Plans also shows that the developer will construct a narrow park on both the west and east of the property, connected by a walking trail to the north of the property. The 10 acres of park land will be handed over to city control upon completion to become a neighborhood park. Some advocates to keep the golf course said they if keeping the course wasn't an option, they would like to see green space maintained.
