Friday, November 12 Pasadena City College
The team of GPUAC members and city commissioners refined the draft alternatives incorporating the comments received from the community on Day 1. The technical team of city staff further refined the graphics for display. The community attended a second open house and provided feedback on the refined alternatives.
East Pasadena and East Colorado: Reduce development capacity in the Central District and direct development to East Pasadena and along East Colorado Boulevard (east of Lake Avenue).
Major Districts and Corridors: Reduce development capacity in the Central District and direct development to multiple districts and corridors (e.g. East Pasadena, East Washington Boulevard, Lincoln Avenue, Northwest Pasadena) incorporating mixed-use and neighborhood serving commercial uses.
Reduced Capacity: Maintain the vision and intent of the existing General Plan (e.g. protect residential neighborhoods and create mixed-use urban environments) but reduce the amount of development capacity city-wide.
"Smart Growth" and Sustainability: Distribute development and intensity with a focus on transit nodes in order to maximize conformance to “smart growth” and sustainability (environmental, economic, social) principles.
Economic Vitality: Maximize the economic vitality of Pasadena.
Housing Opportunities: Increase housing opportunities to serve the housing needs of all of Pasadena’s residents.
In the evening, the community attended an open house and provided feedback on the draft alternatives.
