Conservation and Sustainability, cont.
Very little wilderness area exists in Pasadena. The city purchased more
than 20 acres of Annandale Canyon to preserve it as open space for future
generations. Residents in nearby residential neighborhoods voted to help pay for
the open space.
The update of the Open Space and Conservation Element of the General Plan –
which sets goals and priorities for preserving public access to Pasadena’s open
space as well as conserving energy, water, trees and other natural resources –
kicked off with a community event in February at City Hall where residents
shared what their favorite open space areas are, learned about related city
programs and the role community groups have played in preserving open space, and
heard from nationally renowned speakers.
