Picking up after our four legged friends is part of being a responsible pet owner. In addition, the Pasadena Municipal Code requires that you clean up after your dog within five minutes, whether your pooch leaves their “business” on public or private property. So as a service to our residents and visitors, Old Pasadena Management District has installed dispensers, throughout the District, which provide pet owners with (biodegradable) bags to retrieve and dispose of pet droppings. These dispensers can be found at the following locations:

• 50 East Green Street (Castle Green Hotel)
• 33 West Green Street (Aaardvark’s Odd Ark)
• 67 West Dayton Avenue
• North Side of Dayton Avenue (Condo Complex)
• South Side of Green Street (Westgate – Sares-Regis Project)
• 54 South Pasadena Avenue (Harmony Nails)
• 84 S. Fair Oaks Avenue
• 112 S. DeLacey Avenue

Please be a good neighbor, obey the law and pick up after your pets. Thank you.

A stately vintage-style corner clock has taken its proud perch at the corner of Holly Street and Fair Oaks Avenue to anchor what property owner, Jim Plotkin, has christened “The Shops on Holly”. Jim conceived of this project about a year ago and has been working diligently with historians, design experts, and city officials to design, manufacture and install an authentically styled clock to crown the unique independent mix of stores and restaurants that line Holly Street.

Nixle – A Community Information Service
by Anna Addis, OPMD Vice President of Operations

After meeting with our friends at Pasadena Police Dept. the other day, they told us about a very useful and free website called Nixle that you may want to try. Nixle is a community information service that helps you stay connected to the information that matters to you and is keyed to your physical location. You can stay connected to your local police department, your children’s schools, sports and club teams, local community agencies and organizations and get information about each instantly. Nixle provides you with information immediately on your cell phone via text messages, by email and over the web. Your account can be customized so you only receive the information that matters to you most.
