The state is threatening to tear down Glendale's mid-century courthouse, and as Friend of Franklin Avenue Chris Nichols notes, it's time for some action:
Have you ever seen the great 1958 Glendale courthouse on Broadway across from City Hall? It is a very special midcentury modern building that is completely original and really beautiful. See attached photo. There is a plan to replace it with a new courthouse and retain just the facade and I'm hoping you can join me in writing a letter asking the state to include the historic courthouse in their plans. There are photos and background here.Do the right thing, people!
It will only take a minute to shoot off an email and it will help a lot. Here's a sample.
