The East Colorado Specific Plan, adopted in 2003, provides neighborhood-specific design and land use regulations for an approximately 200-acre area in central Pasadena. This Specific Plan area includes parcels fronting Colorado Boulevard between Wilson and Roosevelt Avenues, Green Street between Wilson and Holliston Avenues, and Allen Avenue between Corson Street and Colorado Boulevard. The Metro Gold Line Allen Station is located just north of the Specific Plan boundary. Other notable assets in the Specific Plan area include Pasadena City College, the historic Methodist Church on Holliston Avenue, the Kindel Building, the Howard Motor Company Building, and the historic Foothill Boulevard Milestone marker.
In effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to engage the community, the City of Pasadena Planning & Community Development Department will hold virtual open houses for the third round of community engagement. The East Colorado Specific Plan Open House will go live on Thursday, July 16, 2020. Check out the Virtual Open House Page here to explore potential development standards and vision for the plan area.
