Our Pasadena is a three year program to update the Specific Plans and Zoning Code to establish new development standards and design guidelines that support the vision, goals, and policies set forth in the Specific Plans and General Plan.
The program was launched in March 2018 with a series of educational community-wide open houses, coined Putting the Plan in Motion, to introduce the program and solicit broad input on community values and concerns. Three rounds of workshops for each Specific Plan are scheduled, starting with the first round of workshops mid-2018 and concluding with the last round of workshops by early 2021.
Round 1 Workshops: (Summer 2018)
Your Goals - Getting Specific
The objective of this round is to refine the General Plan vision, goals, and policies as they apply to each unique Specific Plan area and discuss desired land uses, density ranges, and general urban form with the community.
Feedback received will help develop preliminary concept plans for each Specific Plan area.
Round 2 Workshops: (Winter 2018 - Spring 2019)
Your Choices - Weighing the Options
The objective for the second round of workshops is to present preliminary land use and urban form concept plans in response to input received, as well as an overview of existing conditions and economic analysis for each Specific Plan area.
Feedback received will help refine the preliminary concept plans and inform updates to the Zoning Code.
Round 3 Workshops: (2020)
Your Plans - Bringing it All Together
The objective for the third round of workshops is to present refined concept plans, including goals/policies, densities, urban design guidelines, land uses, regulatory schemes, and potential implementation strategies.
Feedback received will help develop draft Specific Plan documents that will be presented to Design Commission, Planning Commission, and City Council.
Public Hearings: (2021)
Our Pasadena Plans
The objective of these hearings is to present draft Specific Plan documents and Zoning Code updates before the Design and Planning Commissions for their recommendations to City Council.
Adopt the Specific Plans and corresponding changes to the Zoning Code so that future development in the City reflects the community’s values and is consistent with the General Plan.
