Glendale Register of Historic Resources

Glendale created and adopted the Glendale Register of Historic Resources on September 30, 1997. Today the Register contains over 100 properties, and is growing each year as more owners learn about the program and apply for listing. The Register does not constitute the complete list of historic properties in Glendale - there are many, many candidates out there that might be eligible for listing. More research needs to be done to find and document historic properties - ultimately, listing on the Register requires the approval of both the property owner and the City Council. Once a property is on the Register, proposed alterations, repairs and demolitions must be approved by the Community Development Department and/or the Historic Preservation Commission. Owners of listed properties are eligible to participate in the city's Mills Act program, which can provide a significant reduction in property taxes in exchange for the owner's commitment to maintaining the property at the highest level of preservation.
