After more than a hundred workshops and community events, four land use plan alternatives for future growth were developed for the Pasadena’s General Plan update:
A - Focuses on lowering the capacity on future growth for the Central District while increasing capacity in East Pasadena and along major streets such as East Colorado. B - Focuses on improving the city’s economic vitality by expanding opportunities for offices, industries and other job-generating land uses. Growth would continue in the Central District, and new growth would occur along major streets and in other districts. C- Envisions new transit villages around Gold Line stations and mixed-use “neighborhood villages” at major intersections to promote transit use and walking. The goal of the neighborhood village is to create a vibrant neighborhood with easy access to transit and a mix of housing and neighborhood-serving businesses. D - Focuses on reducing the remaining capacity or caps established in the current General Plan in the Central District, South Fair Oaks and West Gateway planning areas, and retaining much of the capacity in other areas.
A special newsletter with information on the alternatives and a community survey to receive feedback on the alternatives were mailed to all households and businesses in June 2011. The survey asked which alternative, or combination of alternatives, were preferred for six planning areas. The survey also sought feedback on the guiding principles of the General Plan. The results will provide a framework to begin drafting a concept land use plan.View the newsletter and survey:
