    From the Council Workshop to Charrette Day 3


    Six different themes were presented to the City Council at the Council Workshop.  The themes were based on the feedback gathered during the previous outreach events.  By the end the charrette, the themes had evolved into four draft alternatives.  This section organizes the information gathered at the charrette by theme.

     

    Theme 1:  East Colorado and East Pasadena

    This theme was merged with Theme 2 at the beginning of Day 3

    Reduce development capacity in the Central District and direct development to East Pasadena and along East Colorado Boulevard (east of Lake Avenue).

     

    Theme 2:  Major Corridors  

    This theme was merged with Theme 1 at the beginning of Day 3

    Reduce development capacity in the Central District and direct development to multiple districts and corridors (e.g. East Pasadena, East Washington Boulevard, Lincoln Avenue, Northwest Pasadena) incorporating mixed-use and neighborhood serving commercial uses.

     

    Theme 3:  Reduced Capacity

    This theme was merged with Theme 2 at the beginning of Day 2 and then reemerged as a separate theme at the beginning of Day 3

    Maintain the vision and intent of the existing General Plan (e.g. protect residential neighborhoods and create mixed-use urban environments) but reduce the amount of development capacity city-wide.

     

    Theme 4:  Smart Growth and Sustainability 

    Distribute development and intensity with a focus on transit nodes in order to maximize conformance to “smart growth” and sustainability (environmental, economic, social) principles.

    Theme 6: Housing Opportunities
