The City of Glendale has always prided itself in offering high quality housing opportunities to preserve architectural integrity of housing by assuring compatibility with existing neighborhood and to preserve green space. In order to assure that new construction meets high quality standards and is in general conformity with the style and design of surrounding structures, the Architectural Review Board considers all exterior aspects of a structure and their location. The Architectural Review Board will consider several criteria including but not limited to the effect of the construction upon the flow of water runoff from the property; floor area ratio of the proposed construction; context, style, scale and proportion of the proposed construction; types, color, and quality of materials to be used; compatibility with the period and detail of neighborhood houses, and landscaping plans.Redevelopment of residential properties has accelerated dramatically in virtually all neighborhoods over the past several years. It is important to assure that the quality of construction remains at a high level.
