Pasadena In Focus
May - June 2011

The Stage is Set for the General Plan!

Which alternative is the best for Pasadena? Which plan will you choose? You will be asked these questions this June as the city continues to update its General Plan.

Hundreds of participants devised four alternatives for city land use and mobility plans at workshops last fall. Alternative A calls for growth to be diverted from the Central District to East Pasadena and other business districts, Alternative B calls for maximizing economic vitality and jobs, Alternative C calls for “smart growth” along transportation lines and major intersections and Alternative D calls for slowing growth citywide.

In June you’ll find a survey in your mailbox and online asking which alternative, or combination of alternatives, you prefer. The community will be asked to make decisions based on how much the alternatives would affect jobs, housing, traffic, greenhouse gas emissions and much more. Your feedback will help guide the city’s growth over the next ten years and beyond.
