CITY HALL — The Glendale Redevelopment Agency will vote Tuesday on whether to allow Glendale Career College to move into a building at the corner of Brand Boulevard and California Avenue. The agency will vote on whether to approve the final environmental study on the school's relocation, which after allocating appropriate parking for the students, faculty and staff, shows there will be no major impact on the area as a result of the move, a city staff report said. The college currently sits at 1015 Grandview Ave. They will also consider granting a parking exception to allow the college to purchase passes for 119 parking spaces at the Orange Street Public Parking Garage at current monthly rental rates.
