District, city close to settling on $1.8-million loan for artificial turf and all-weather track at Glendale High School. GLENDALE CITY HALL -- The city will loan $1.8 million to the Glendale Unified School District for the installation of new artificial turf and an all-weather track at Glendale High School, a project slated to be completed within a year.
The Glendale Redevelopment Agency and the Board of Education went over the final details of the loan agreement at their respective meetings on Tuesday.
Under the loan deal, scheduled to be approved by the Glendale Board of Education on Dec. 13, money that the district would have received over the next 20 years from the city's Central Project Redevelopment Area would instead be loaned up front in one lump sum. The $1.8 million wouldbe used to replace the high school's aging Moyse Field, a project that is expected to be completed before the start of next year's football season.
