Eminent domain authority
The City Council on Tuesday extended the Glendale Redevelopment Agency's eminent domain authority in the Central Glendale project area, which was set to expire on Sept. 29. The ordinance extends the agency's condemnation authority for up to 12 years.
WHAT IT MEANS
City officials say eminent domain is an important tool for redevelopment efforts, but emphasize it is used as a last resort.
