Pasadena In Focus
2009 General Plan Special Edition

Speaker Series will Spark Ideas and Insights

A diverse slate of knowledgeable professionals will add their unique voices to Pasadena’s General Plan update through a thought-provoking speaker series.

Free and open to the public, the entertaining dialogues will shine a light on new ideas, perspectives and questions as Pasadenans help plan our community for generations to come. How can a pedestrian-friendly city be nurtured while quick transit corridors are created? How can we retain the city’s unique character while accommodating economic growth?

The speaker series is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights including Sept. 16 and 30, Oct. 14 and 28, and Nov. 4. Topics will include housing, density and affordability; streets, traffic and transit; design and community character; how to share water, energy and other resources; and our plans and the marketplace.

Each session will open with a rousing conversation among panelists, followed by questions and answers plus audience discussion. Ideas generated from discussion will be recorded for future consideration in the plan update process.

So turn off the TV and share an evening with your community! Visit the General Plan website for the complete schedule and more details.
