While reading the Sunday edition, I came across two articles about the proposed Americana at Brand expansion.
One was a full-page ad saying that Glendale faces an $8-million deficit this year with threats to services like police, fire and parks. Then it goes on to say that the Americana has generated more than $3 million in revenue. Now they want to take away a small piece of property with a motel on it and add it to the Americana, (saying by doing this the city will get more revenue.
And put a small businessman out of business.
I was against this project from the beginning and still am. Besides bringing revenue to the city, it has also brought a lot of traffic congestion to the downtown area and will add more if this expansion goes through.
