Design Guidelines are Nearly Ready

Have your say on draft design guidelines for neighborhood commercial centers and multifamily homes before they’re submitted for final approval at a Design Commission meeting set for Monday, Aug. 24, at 6 p.m. at Pasadena Senior Center, 85 E. Holly St.

The subject of a series of community meetings this year, the guidelines set new standards for how our neighborhood commercial centers and multifamily complexes of three or more units should look. A final draft, which incorporates an abundance of public comments, will be available at www.cityofpasadena.net/guidelines beginning Friday, Aug. 7.

During the Aug. 24 meeting, the commission will review and discuss the final draft and take additional comments from the public before passing it along to the city council for consideration in late August or early September. Once final guidelines are adopted, the city will host discussions and public meetings on how they will be applied.

Complete details – including a map of affected areas, project schedule, documents for review and space to submit comments – are available at www.cityofpasadena.net/guidelines. There are a number of ways to provide your feedback: online, during the public meetings, by calling 744-7806, by emailing kevinjohnson@cityofpasadena.net, by faxing to 396-7259, or sending them via postal mail or dropping them off at 175 N. Garfield Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101-1704.
