After several years of working together to create a shared vision of Pasadena’s future, the City of Pasadena will now focus on implementing that vision by updating its Specific Plans and the Zoning Code. Through this process, all of Pasadena’s Specific Plans and the Zoning Code will be updated, resulting in new development standards and guidelines that will help shape Pasadena’s major commercial and mixed-use areas.
