The Open Space and Conservation Element of the General Plan was adopted by the City Council on January 23, 2012. The Open Space and Conservation Element provides a blueprint for natural open space and conservation. The element is guided by the following vision statement which informs the goals, objectives and implementation measures:
Pasadena treasures, protects, restores, and expands its natural open space and exemplifies innovative and effective natural resource stewardship and conservation.
Together with the Green Space, Recreation and Park Element and Master Plan, the Open Space and Conservation Element serves as a framework of goals and policies to assure efficient stewardship of the City's green spaces, recreation facilities, and natural resources.
