We are very excited to announce that Glendale has officially joined the
Buy Nothing Project movement.
You must live in the boundaries of Glendale to join this group. The boundaries of our neighborhood are the area west of I-15 between (to the city limit) the 9-Line Trail and SR-201.
Head over to our new Buy Nothing Glendale Facebook group to join the Buy Nothing movement and build the community here in Glendale.
We're also looking for volunteers to help us lead and grow the Buy Nothing Glendale page. If you are interested, please email our Chair Turner Bitton at email@example.com
We are working on a neighborhood-wide planning project to develop a community-driven vision for Glendale. This document will be called the One Glendale Plan and will cover a variety of topics: sustainability, transportation, Jordan River, parks and open space, community identity and public art, and other topics that arise through community input.
Help us create a plan that works for ALL Glendale residents by taking the One Glendale Plan survey today:

Today the Glendale Community Council released a report with findings from an on-site visioning exercise held at the Raging Waters property on October 31, 2020. The event was designed to solicit feedback from the community regarding the future of the Raging Waters site.
Overview: Closed since 2018, the pools leak, much of the equipment is broken and unsafe, or no longer meet engineering codes. Vandalism and operator abandonment have created additional problems, such as fires, stripped electrical wiring, and equipment theft. The park’s condition leaves Salt Lake City wrestling with the difficult question of what to do next.
The Raging Waters site presents an especially important opportunity for the Glendale neighborhood and residents are passionate and invested in the future of its development.
The report is designed to provide feedback to the Salt Lake City Council and Mayor as they discuss the future of the site.
The community council has been asked to review a request to build a monopole on the western edge of our neighborhood. If you have thoughts or comments, please comment below and we will incorporate them into our final letter.
The Glendale Community Council submitted the attached letter to the Salt Lake City Transportation Division Department of Community and Neighborhoods regarding a proposed redesign of the intersection at 900 West and California Avenue.
We hosted an event on September 2nd, 2020 for residents to provide feedback for inclusion in the letter and the attached letter is an amalgamation of that feedback.
We want to express our appreciation to the Salt Lake City Transportation Division for incorporating our feedback into the final design of the street.
Raging Waters which has changed names to Raging Waters and later Seven Peaks is in a state of serious disrepair.

The Glendale Community Council hosted an onsite visioning conversation on October 31, 2020. For those who missed the meeting, you can still participate. Here's how you can participate.
Step 1: Review Our Draft Scenarios
We've created some draft scenarios to illustrate all of the possibilities for the site. Please note, these are not fully formed ideas nor are they reflective of any solid plan for the site. Rather, we created them as a way of showcasing the many ideas that have been floated for the Raging Waters property.
As you review them, we recommend that you ask yourself four questions:
1) Which of the scenarios is most cost-effective and financially feasible? You may define this in any way that you like.
2) Which of the scenarios is best for the many children and families in our neighborhood?
3) Which of the scenarios is most accessible to people with disabilities, seniors, and others who may have mobility challenges?
4) How can we preserve the history of the waterpark and build community identity?
Step 2: Create Your Own Vision
Now that you've considered the possibilities. We want to see your vision for the site!
Download the visioning canvas linked below and draw your vision for the site. After you've drawn it, we would love to hear from you. Please send a picture of your site plan to Turner Bitton at firstname.lastname@example.org or text it to (801) 564-3860. As always, you can comment below with your ideas and vision as well.
We're so grateful for your feedback and excited to see your ideas!
