Glenbrook Valley Civic Club “Glenbrook Valley Is A Deed Restricted Neighborhood” January

2011

Historic Update As reported last month, the HAHC unanimously approved the Glenbrook Valley Historic application on November 18, 2010. On December 2, 2010 the Planning Commission unanimously approved Glenbrook Valley's application to become a Historic District. The next step is the approval of City Council. At this time the date for our application to be on City Council's agenda is unknown.

Al corriente con la designación histórica

Como se reportó el mes pasado, la HAHC aprobó unánimemente la solicitud de Glenbrook Valley para la designación histórica el 18 de noviembre, 2010. El 2 de diciembre, 2010, la Comisión de Planificación aprobó unánimemente la solicitud de Glenbrook Valley para hacerse un Distrito histórico. El próximo paso es la aprobación del Concejal municipal.
