East Pasadena Specific Plan draft awaits your input

The draft updated East Pasadena Specific Plan has been posted since December 10. 
The deadline for submitting comments is Thursday January 14.

The East Pasadena Specific Plan details the zoning regulations for the areas on three sides of our neighborhood:

  • Along Foothill Blvd east of the freeway bridge.
  • East of Sierra Madre Villa Ave to the north side of Rosemead Blvd.
  • Along Colorado Blvd east from Kinneloa Ave.

Currently all these areas are developed as commercial or office, but the zoning allows for multi-family residential. Some residential projects in these areas have been proposed in recent years, but none have actually started building yet.

PCC-CEC’s area and the park are also included, but no changes have been noted for their zoning.
There was a zoom community presentation/meeting on December 17. The recording is available online. (Very poorly attended partly because the notice and info for accessing the meeting was sent the day after meeting).

There is a “Virtual Room” where you can download the draft plan, view the recorded meeting, look at posters with the information presented in the meeting, and submit comments. That is accessed here

For all the details of the proposed plan, download the draft plan document.

To access the draft plan document, use the link above to get to the Virtual Room. There is a virtual table in the foreground. Click on the orange/yellow ball with a document symbol that is on the right side of the table. Then click on “Draft Specific Plan”. 

After the City planners and consultants go through, and presumably consider, the comments on the draft, a revised draft will go before the City’s Planning Commission. That might be this summer. The results of that meeting then go to the City Council for final consideration and approval. That might be early next year.
