03.12.2012 Pasadena General Plan
The city of Pasadena had a great turn out at PCC. They were actually overwhelmed by the interest in sustainability issues and improvements. One of the main themes was the need for more bike lanes and better flow for alternative transportation.
Several individuals wanted more green space and expressed desire for community gardens.Unfortunately, the city suggested temporary green space that would be later developed into condos/stores.
Also, there was a suggestion to create electric street cars/buses for better public transportation. The other problem expressed was that there traffic study showed that the average resident made 10 trips per day. There was a suggestion to decrease the amount of free parking spaces to encourage residents to walk or bike.
Another issue was the changes in sustainability policy would only apply to new growth and the city of Pasadena is not interested in redevelopment.
