    MoveAbout Tours

    MoveAbout Tour ParticipantsThroughout September and October 2009, residents biked, walked, drove, took the Arts bus or took the Gold Line through six self-guided MoveAbout Tours. These unique tours allowed residents to experience and comment on different Pasadena locales and highlighted some of Pasadena’s most challenging issues: residential density, the need for safe bike lanes, the walk-ability of the city, architectural design, and more.

    Participants then turned in their booklets with their thoughts and ideas. Many of them were able to win fabulous raffle prizes!!

    Still Want to Take a Tour?
    Even though the deadline to turn in booklets has ended, the tours are a fun thing to do on your own, with a friend or as a group.

Over 20 people attended – which included a wide representation of City Commissioners.
     

  • Youth MoveAbout Tour


    Youth MoveAbout TourOn August 19, 2009, 22 high school and middle school students and several adults recruited from a variety of local schools, non-profit organizations, religious institutions, and community groups volunteered a hot summer day to take a youth version of the Gold Line MoveAbout tour. They gave Pasadena City staff members, Metro officials, and other adult volunteers their opinions on important topics such as the value of living near public transportation, the placement of open space, parks, and businesses, and the aesthetics of local art and architecture.

    From their meeting point at Del Mar Gold Line Station, these teens were given cameras, name tags, pens, and booklets in which they answered questions and wrote insightful comments about what works and what could be improved in Pasadena. As they moved from station to station, got out and walked around, and examined the environment, they were asked to take photographs of things they liked and didn’t like – horizontal shots of the “good” and vertical shots of the “bad”.

    I liked the block south of the station more. It has more shade and access to more stores. - Heather Adams, high school student
