The Community is invited to two General Plan Community Information meetings in June to learn about the draft General Plan Land Use and Mobility Elements, the direction given by the City Council, and the environmental review process.
The Community Information Meetings are scheduled for:
- Saturday, June 15 starting at 9:00 a.m. at Pasadena City College’s Circadian Room,
Building CC, at 1570 E. Colorado Blvd. Please park at Lot 3 off S. Hill Ave. (parking is $2).
- Thursday, June 27 starting at 6:30 p.m. at Pasadena Presbyterian Church’s Gamble Lounge,
585 E. Colorado Blvd. Free parking is available on the north side of E. Union St. between N. Madison Ave. and N. Oakland Ave.
City staff will offer the same presentation at each meeting.
At the upcoming meetings, City staff will give attendees an in-depth presentation on the direction given by the City Council to study changes to the General Plan. Planners will give background on what an environmental impact report (EIR) typically studies, describe how a General Plan EIR is different from other kinds of EIRs, and inform attendees about future opportunities to provide input during the environmental review process. Although these meetings are not part of the environmental review process, if community members are ready, staff will record any initial thinking on subjects the environmental impact report should study.
Later in the process, staff will prepare an environmental Initial Study. This Initial Study will provide preliminary environmental analysis, give initial findings on the potential level of environmental impact, and state which subjects require additional study. In the future, the City will host environmental scoping meetings to allow the community to review and provide feedback on the environmental initial study. Throughout the environmental process, City staff will continue to meet with the community to present progress on the analysis and to take comments.
On April 29, the City Council reviewed and provided direction on eight key components of the General Plan Update. This included changes to the
- Guiding Principles,
- Land Use Element’s Policies and Objectives,
- Organization of the Land Use Element,
- Mobility Element Objectives,
- Goals and Objectives of the Mobility Supporting Initiatives,
- Specific Plan Boundaries,
- General Plan Land Use Diagram, and
- Development Caps.
