City of Glendale Business Resources

Do you plan to open a business in Glendale, California?

Montrose, for the most part, is in the City of Glendale and is governed by it. However, LA County governs some parts of Montrose. La Crescenta-Montrose, the unincorporated area in Los Angeles County, California, encompasses those parts of the Crescenta Valley not in the cities of Glendale or La Cañada Flintridge. Both the unincorporated area and the portion of incorporated Glendale north of Montrose are collectively called La Crescenta. It is bordered on the north by the Angeles National Forest, on the east by La Cañada Flintridge, on the south by Glendale, and the northwest by Tujunga.
