Community Forums Planned for June 23 and June 26

Pasadena residents are invited to attend the community forums planned June 23 and June 26 to learn about the City’s draft General Plan update.
Two sessions are planned for each day, June 23 and 26, where the same information and outreach materials will be available at all four meetings. Attendees will be able to learn about proposed, future growth areas and they can share their thoughts on the key elements of the General Plan update process, including the Draft Concept Map and the Land-Use and Mobility chapters.
On Saturday, June 23, two meetings will be held at Pasadena City College, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd., at the Creveling Lounge, Building CC. The first session will be from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., followed by the second session from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Parking is available at $2 per vehicle in the College’s Lot 3, off Hill Avenue.
On Tuesday, June 26, two meetings will be held at the Pasadena Senior Center, 85 E. Holly St. Parking is available at Arroyo Parkway and Holly Street. The meetings will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
For more information on the community forums and General Plan update, go to www.cityofpasadena.net/generalplan or call (626) 744-6807.
“Community outreach continues to be the foundation for updating the General Plan, a process we began in early 2009,” said Vince Bertoni, Director of Planning. “We’ve hosted more than 150 community meetings, workshops and other activities for more than 4,000 people. The draft map being presented now is a culmination of the community’s vision developed at those meetings.”
Bertoni said the four main guidelines for the General Plan update include: protecting and preserving Pasadena’s communities; identifying targeted growth areas; planning for walking, bicycling, transit and accessibility, and economic vitality. The General Plan was last updated in 1994, he said.
Later this year, the General Plan update enters a new phase in which the material will be presented to Pasadena’s advisory commissions and the City Council for consideration and approval. The community is encouraged to attend these important public meetings.
