Online Property Portal Tool
The City of Glendale’s Community Development Department now offers an Online Property Portal Tool to assist individuals in finding important information about Glendale properties. This tool is a valuable resource for anyone conducting research about a property. Someone looking to purchase a new home, for example, would be able to gather important clues and insight into the property’s history before making a purchase.
To access visit http://csi.glendaleca.gov/csipropertyportal/. Enter a property address, APN number, or permit number in the search field in the upper right hand corner. If an exact address is not found, the search will display the closest matches under the Address tab. Select the correct property address. Results will show the property’s location on a map. Users can switch from map to satellite view by clicking on the square at the lower left hand corner of the map.
Once the property of interest is found, information such as details about permits that have been issued to the property address will be available. Click on the arrows on the left to review the information. When looking for specifics about a permit, click on the permit number for more details.
FMWD Responds to Governor’s Mandate
Governor Brown issued an executive order mandating that cities and towns across California reduce water use by 25%. This marks the first time in California’s history that mandatory restrictions on water use have been implemented statewide. The executive order also includes a number of other measures intended to save water in the near-term and make California more drought resilient overall. The governor announced his plans as the California Dept. of Water Resources conducted the winter’s fourth manual snow survey, which found Sierra snowpack levels to be at astonishing all-time lows.
“With California’s severe drought showing no signs of easing up, it is crucial that we all take steps to stretch limited supplies further than ever before, and Southern California Water Committee commends Gov. Brown for taking decisive action to reduce the state’s water usage,” stated Richard Atwater, board president of Foothill Municipal Water District. “Southern California’s water agencies have pioneered innovative strategies to conserve water and make the region more water efficient for the long term, and will continue to seek out ways to conserve water during and beyond this drought.”
