California State law requires each city to prepare a Comprehensive General Plan to address community policies and objectives for growth and development. The City of Glendale's General Plan establishes the policies for use and protection of resources to meet community needs.
Glendale's General Plan contains eleven sections (see list and dates updated). These sections, called elements, are published separately. They address the seven topics (circulation, conservation, housing, land use, noise, open space, and safety) mandated by state law and four additional topics (air quality, community facilities, historic preservation, and recreation) recommended, but not required by state law.
Land Use Element
Open Space and Conservation Element
Historic Preservation Element
Glendale also has specific plans and community plans:
Downtown Specific Plan
Town Center Specific Plan

The executive summaries from the following elements are currently available online:
