Lincoln Avenue

The Lincoln Avenue Specific Plan, adopted in 2013, provides neighborhood-specific design and land use regulations for an approximate 48-acre area in north Pasadena. This Specific Plan area includes properties fronting the 1.3 mile section of Lincoln Avenue generally bounded by Montana Avenue to the north, Newport Avenue and I-210 freeway to the east, and Forest Avenue to the south. Notable assets in the Specific Plan area include Palms Plaza, the Business Park of Pasadena, Rosewalk Townhomes, Kettle’s Nurseries, and John Muir High School. 

On Monday, September 13, 2021 at 5:00 PM, the Recommended Lincoln Avenue Specific Plan (LASP) was scheduled to be presented to the City Council for its review and approval. This hearing was postponed until September 20, 2021.
