Dear Mayor and Councilmembers:
Please keep the discussion going on the future of light rail in Glendale. We need more definitive projections of cost before a final decision is made. I would hope that you would consider the advancement of light rail to at least a transition point of say 52nd Avenue, so that the mile stretch from 43rd to 51st avenues can have the potential of development that is needed to revitalize that area of town. I believe there are developers who are just waiting to see if we will have light rail before they commit to bringing investment dollars to Glendale.

What does the Glendale Chamber of Commerce do?
What a chamber of commerce does is a question we are frequently asked.
Simply put, we champion a prosperous community – it is our sole reason for being.
So what exactly does a chamber of commerce do, for both a member business and the community?
A chamber is an organization that helps to further growth in a community. How it serves that mission through benefits, services and products is where chambers differ. Each chamber is unique to the community it serves, but the commonality between all chambers is they strive to be the underlying support network and unified voice of the businesses they serve. A chamber accomplishes this through a group of members invested in strengthening the community, bettering the business climate, and creating opportunities for their respective region to advance in a global economy.

By DARRELL JACKSON,
Councilmembers could not reach a consensus during the Sept. 5 workshop to approve a resolution that would have the city’s possible support for Expect More Arizona’s statewide education efforts, including support for Gov. Doug Ducey’s Achieve60AZ initiative.
The initiative sets a goal of getting 60 percent of adults, ages 25 to 64, to obtain a professional certificate or college degree by 2030.
