The Glendale City Council this week gave communities the ability to assess themselves and to use that money to pay for improvements. The so-called community benefit districts would act in a similar way to the more well-known business improvement districts, in which business owners assess themselves a fee or tax each year and then use that money to pay for infrastructure upgrades and other amenities. Participating property owners in a community benefit district would contribute money and then decide which improvements they'd like made using those funds, including marketing materials, extra security and additional litter removal beyond what the city provides.

Hmmm…let me get this right. The city of Glendale is cutting services to its citizens, asking city employees to take pay cuts and contribute more to the pensions, but they are essentially giving away a prime piece of downtown property valued at $2.5 million to bring in a new theater (“More choices for Glendale movie-goers,” Dec. 6)? Oh yeah, I forgot, it will attract residents with more cultured tastes to patronize local business. I guess common-folk taste ain't good enough and we ain't got the money to buy tickets.

Wake up! Do more research and less name calling. Regarding the Sept. 1 letter, “Pay no attention to nutty fringe groups,” I am a member of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and believe that they do a lot of good work for the protection of animals. I suggest your readers look further into how humans make a buck by terrorizing and slaughtering animals. That's what is really nutty. What does an elephant have to do with Glendale anyway? I grew up in this city and a circus theme as a New Years float has no correlation.
