Frequently Asked Questions

In 2015, the City of Pasadena updated the General Plan including the Land Use and Mobility Elements. The Land Use Element is a guide and establishes broad policies that identify the overall pattern of future development, determining when, where, and what type of new growth and investment may occur. The Mobility Element provides a vision of an integrated multimodal transportation system that offers choices and accessibility for everyone living and working in the City. This current effort will update Pasadena’s Specific Plans and Zoning Code to be consistent with the updated General Plan.



The process to update Pasadena’s Specific Plans and the Zoning Code is estimated to conclude in late 2024.  Please visit this website often and/or sign-up for email updates.
