Glendale prepared to take land if necessary

The Glendale City Council has given its attorney the go-ahead to use the city’s eminent domain powers if necessary to forcibly take two parcels of privately owned land near the municipal airport.

The Arizona Republic reports that the land is beyond the end of the runway and would be part of a zone that protects people and property on the ground should an aircraft land or crash.

The city says it has offered $5 million to Conair Corp. for 42 acres and that the company made a counter-offer of $14.6 million.

City Attorney Craig Tindall says the city is in negotiations to purchase the property.

Steve Alley, Conair’s director of Western operations, says the company hopes that it can amicably resolve the situation with the city.
