Featured Story
Speak Up, Stand Up, Save a Life
Since 2009, suicides among youths has increased 81%. One critical factor is the stigma associated with asking for help. On January 16, 2018, students, police chiefs, government officials, parents and teachers will get together to tackle ongoing issues involving bullying, depression, drug addiction and other ongoing issues facing our youth.  Together we can inspire everyone to Speak Up, Stand Up, and help Save a Life!  Help us reach our goal of 5,000 conference attendees in 2018!  

Support our youth by attending the Stand Up, Speak, Up, Save a Life Youth Conference organized by  Lily DeBlieux  and learn about the struggles our youth face today. Your small contribution can make a big difference!  #CareEnough

Brelby Theatre Company presents
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Jessica Holt
Performing Nov. 10-11 @ 7:30PM at the
E. Lowell Rogers Amphitheater in Murphy Park
Mischief meets merriment in this fresh reimagining of Shakespeare’s most popular romantic comedy. In just one night, four magical stories are cleverly woven together: the marriage of the Athenian duke to the Amazon queen; the battle of the king and queen of the fairies; the follies of four lovers in a forest; and the hilarious antics of amateur actors staging a play. Enter a vibrant world where fairies fly overhead, a donkey bursts into song, and love potion makes your perspective turn on a dime.
This production is FREE to the public thanks to support in part by the City of Glendale Public Arts Program.

Business Leaders needed to Serve
on Temporary Subcommittee
Business Leaders Needed to Serve on Temporary Subcommittee

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Glendale City Council is in the process of recruiting community business representatives to serve on a temporary (one-year) subcommittee for the exclusive purpose of reviewing and making recommendations that would simplify and streamline city processes related to regulatory codes, business licensing, planning, and development.

“The committee will be charged with making recommendations to the City Council regarding potential policy revisions and other improvements that Glendale can implement that will foster a more business-friendly environment that makes it easier for businesses to start and grow in our community,” said Sam McAllen, Glendale Director of Development Services.

In addition to making Glendale even more business friendly, the goal of the new City Council’s business leader subcommittee is to enhance Glendale’s reputation for supporting job attraction, creation and retention. Subcommittee members will collaborate with City Councilmembers and other business leaders gathering information, sharing concerns, and making recommendations to improve the way Glendale works to support businesses.
