Multi-City Board Outlines New Vision on Transportation

City Councilwoman Terry Walker represents the city on the governing board for the Arroyo Verdugo Communities Joint Powers Authority.

A board made up of officials from Glendale and nearby cities is crafting a new strategic plan, potentially expanding its role in coordinating transportation initiatives in the area.
Members of the governing board for the Arroyo Verdugo Communities Joint Powers Authority expressed interest at a meeting on Aug. 6 in moving beyond traffic and infrastructure concerns to consider other types of transportation, such as light rail and bicycles, for local development, as well as environment-related projects.
