Central District

The November 16th Planning Commission meeting has been cancelled. An updated Planning Commission hearing date will be posted as soon as it is available. A recommended plan is anticipated to be presented to the City Council in early 2023.

The CDSP area is bounded by Corson Street and the I-210 Freeway to the north, Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard to the south, Pasadena Avenue and the I-710 Freeway to the west, and Mentor and Wilson Avenues to the east. 

The proposed CDSP reflects the ideas and feedback gathered from the community outreach process and Commission meetings. the proposed plan seeks to facilitate and build upon the area's existing strengths as Pasadena's vibrant downtown, providing a diverse economic, civic, cultural, entertainment, and residential opportunities. The district will be a place to work, shop, live, play, and raise a family, with convenient access by foot, bicycle, and transit, as well as by car. Physical and economic growth will support this role and respect the numerous resources of historical and cultural significance that contribute to the district’s unique identity.
