Downtown Glendale: 18-Hour City

Share & Bookmark, Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Glendale’s economic development programming is designed to promote an “18-Hour City” that is business-friendly and also provides a vibrant environment for people to live, work and be entertained. An 18-hour city generates financial success for the City’s businesses which provides jobs for its residents, and in turn, funds City services for its residents. 

Economic Development focuses its outreach on interesting operators that appeal to Glendale’s worker population and expand the day in Glendale from breakfast time until late at night.  This outreach is achieved through targeted marketing efforts like the "Meet Me on Brand" campaign below and efforts to bring in additional breweries and taprooms.
