February 2023 Message from the City Manager: Valentines... and Sustainability?

Hi Glendale!

As we move forward in 2023, I thought changing my message’s formatting would be refreshing! Here are a few highlights of what the City has been up to this month:

EV Charging Station Permits Expedited

The Community Development Department has formalized our expedited permit issuance process for electric vehicle charging stations! You can find more information on the building and safety web page with easy-to-read bulletins for single-family homeowners and their contractors to quickly obtain permits for EV charging stations. They also provide details on the permit review process, technical code requirements, and active links for digital submittals of homeowner EV charging stations for single-family dwellings, duplexes, ADUs, and Junior ADUs.


ReflectSpace Gallery Participates in LA Art Show

Central Library’s ReflectSpace Gallery will participate in the LA Art Show, which runs from February 15-19 at the LA Convention Center! Over 120 international galleries, museums, and arts non-profits will participate in the event, with an estimated 60,000-70,000 visitors. ReflectSpace was invited to join with artist Han Ho’s work “Eternal light – 21c The Last Judgment”. ReflectSpace is participating in the section of the fair called DIVERSEartLA, curated by Marisa Caichiolo from Building Bridges Art Exchange at Bergamot Station, featuring themes of social justice.

The LA County Department of Public Health's Nutrition and Physical Activity program in partnership with Adventist Health Glendale Foundation (AHGL), the City of Glendale, and Glendale Unified School District, implemented the program to bring nutrition education, physical activities, produce distributions, and food demonstrations to the Glendale community!


SoCalGas Announces February Natural Gas Prices Drop

We know many residents across southern California have been struggling to keep up with rising costs. That’s why we’re excited to share that SoCalGas recently announced that the natural gas commodity price for February has dropped by 68% for their core customers (residential and small businesses) compared to prices seen in January. SoCalGas does not profit from the movement of gas commodity prices, which are determined by national and regional markets, widespread, below-normal temperatures on much of the West Coast, and reduced natural gas supplies. Learn here.

Additional Assistance with SoCal Gas

Did you know? Lowering your thermostat three to five degrees – if health permits – may save up to 10 percent on heating costs. Not only this but washing clothes in cold water may help save up to 10 percent on water heating costs. Looking for more ways to save? Visit SoCal Gas.

Sign up for email and text Bill Tracker Alerts through My Account to help monitor your natural gas consumption throughout the billing period. Eligible customers may also sign up for a Level Pay Plan, which averages their annual natural gas use and costs over 12 months. Customers then pay an average bill amount each month instead of actual charges.

Learn more about programs that help with bill payments, home energy use, and medically related heating needs.
