Daily News Takes on Glendale

New, 33 comments

A Daily News editorial today slams Glendale for how city officials are handling the Americana at Brand expansion proposal. "Traditionally, eminent domain was used to take property that was needed for public works projects - freeways or schools -facilities that served the greater good of the community. Now, cities acting as redevelopment authorities can be the henchmen of developers, ousting one business for the benefit of another....Since when do city officials get to decide how private property owners should use their private property? This isn't a crack house. It's a clean, affordable hotel in a central part of town. And the owner deserves better from Glendale's leadership." [Daily News]
