City Council proves well-versed in division Aside from the potential tax revenue and General Growth's paranoia and the sheer beauty of the project, which now seems to be lost -- the greater problem, I think, is the City Council's inability to work together in unity. What does this say about the future of our city? MARILYN MCGINNIS Glendale Make that area truly useful to residents The City Council was not elected to change the rules, but to work within them.

Let the people decide the fate of the Town Center The City Council's approval of the Caruso Town Center project is the subject of a referendum petition presently being circulated. Some are incensed by this, asserting it is an attempt to frustrate the will of the people of Glendale -- an attempt to hijack the project and to manipulate the voters. One council member asserted that the referendum is antithetical to our form of government. Such fundamental misunderstandings deserve a response.

Traffic, congestion already plague city streets I have been reading with great interest about the cancellation of the Town Center project. What interests me the most thus far is the number of people in favor of this project as opposed to those not in favor of it. I too feel in some ways that it would be a nice site to have in Glendale, but the overriding negative to me is all the excess traffic it will bring to a city already completely overburdened with cars and lack of parking spaces.
