Pasadena In Focus
November - December 2009

Share. Learn. Celebrate.

hear what others have defined as priorities and make sure your voice is included as we map out Pasadena’s future at the General Plan Community Open House Extravaganza!

imageThe free public event Saturday, Nov. 14, from 1 to 5 p.m. will be indoors and outdoors at 345 S. Lake Ave. (former Stein Mart). Whether you have 20 minutes or the entire afternoon, be sure to join us for a variety of activities.

Live entertainment, art projects, interactive exhibits, round table discussions, speaker sessions, a digital model of Pasadena, children’s activities, free child care, raffle prizes and more will mark the culmination of a months-long effort to gather input about the land use, mobility, and open space and conservation elements of Pasadena’s General Plan – the blueprint for our community’s future. Thousands of Pasadenans have been mobilized through community meetings, MoveAbout tours, a speaker series, council district workshops, an interactive website and much more.

During this final celebration, you’ll hear feedback from prior events and have one last chance – before the next phase of the update process begins – to voice your opinion on how Pasadena should grow and change over the next decade.

Look for free parking at the Corporate Center on the west side of South Lake Avenue between Cordova Street and Del Mar Boulevard; or take the Metro Gold Line to the Lake Avenue Station, then hop a Pasadena ARTS or Metro bus heading south.

The second phase of the General Plan update will begin next year when we’ll fine-tune priorities and discuss alternatives and tradeoffs for bringing the community’s ideas to life. Later, a draft General Plan will be prepared for presentation to the community, city advisory commissions and, finally, the city council.
