The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority and the City Councils of Burbank, Glendale, and Pasadena have begun to meet in regards to the future of the Bob Hope Airport. They are engaged in a two-year visioning process intended to arrive at a consensus about the Airport's future by the year 2015.
