The first in a series of public engagement sessions for a large-scale downtown Glendale reinvestment project happens Wednesday night.

The $70 million plan will revitalize City Hall, the parking structure, Murphy Park and its amphitheater.

Diane Jacobs, principal architect for Holly Street Studio, which won the bid, stressed the importance of community feedback.

“We are just beginning the design process and the point of the meeting is to reach out to the community and share the scope of the project and all the different parts and pieces and get the community’s input,” she said.

Jacobs also said one aim of the project is in keeping with a worldwide movement of creating more viable, pedestrian-friendly and vibrant downtown cores.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. in the Glendale City Council Chambers.

Virtual attendance options include the city’s website or on Glendale 11 as well as Facebook and YouTube.
