Community Workshops – General Plan

Friday, September 10th, 2010

General Plan Workshops

The City of Pasadena is asking for your input.  They are offering a community workshop and there are two dates from which to choose.  No excuses!  It is imperative that the business community be represented in these plans.  We urge you to attend one of the meetings and make your voice heard.  Download the flyer here and share this with your friends, neighbors, and colleagues.

HELP US MAP OUT THE NEW PLAN!

It’s time to start putting our plans down on paper.  We’ve heard from the community through outreach programs for the General Plan updates of the Land Use and Mobility Elements, the Housing Element, the Open Space and Conservation Element, the Bicycle Master Plan, and so on.   Now we need to start pulling everything together and mapping out what the future will look like.  Join us for the next round of workshops where we will start mapping and evaluating potential land use and mobility alternatives for future discussion by the community.

Join us for the next round of community workshops at the Senior Center (85 E. Holly Street) for the General Plan update:

  • Saturday, Sept. 25, 9:00am or
  • Thursday, Sept. 30, 6:30pm

Help us tell everybody about the General Plan Update.

“Lock It, Hide It, Keep It”

LAPD Mural

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) recently launched a new campaign aimed at informing the public of burglary and theft from motor vehicles (BTFV and BFMV), and providing a few simple steps to keep from becoming victims of these crimes.  OPMD recommends that everyone heeds these actions to keep their valuables safe.

“The irony is that if folks would take a few extra seconds to properly store their belongings, this crime could be eliminated. There is no good reason to be the victim of a BTFV or BFMV,” LAPD Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese said. The average cost of a BTFV to each victim is roughly $1885.00.

The message is simple:

·   Lock It: Lock your vehicle every time you leave it unattended and take your valuables with you.

·   Hide It: Hide your valuables in your trunk, under the seats, in the glove box, or other compartments within the vehicle. Ideally, take your property with you.

·   Keep It: Personal responsibility is the best prevention to safeguard personal property and to prevent becoming a victim.
