The Future of Glendale
Glendale has grown from a small suburb of Los Angeles into a thriving, cosmopolitan city in its own right. The City experienced high rates of growth both in the 1920's and the 1980's but this is unlikely to be repeated. According to current estimates, Southern California is expected to grow by some 5.4 million additional people by the year 2030. The City's population is currently around 203,000. Glendale is likely to experience a share of the regional growth but at a slower rate than in the past (40,000 people added in the 1980's compared to 20,000 over the next 25 years.)
