Pasadena Digital History Collaboration!

Monday, November 15th, 2010

We are long familiar with the wonderful archive maintained by the Pasadena Museum of History and have even used historic photographs from their research library on the elevator doors in the three Park & Walk garages, as well as on a photo-mural in the Schoolhouse garage entrance.   These photographs tell the rich story of Pasadena’s early years and so we are very pleased to announce the launch of the Pasadena Digital History Collaboration!  Now you can browse through hundreds of digital images of Pasadena people and places – for free online. Check it out at or on Facebook under Pasadena Digital History.

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.


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

For more information: and click “September 2010 Workshops.”

Help us tell everybody about the General Plan Update.

Pasadena General Plan – Get involved and be heard

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

We recently received the February newsletter from the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and found a piece written by Paul Little, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, to be particularly timely and very pertinent to the businesses of Old Pasadena.  Paul Little is on the Planning Division Committee, so he is well informed as to the importance of this revision.  Old Pasadena Management District urges the business and property owners and management to participate in the revision process to ensure that your interests and concerns are represented and addressed in the updated General Plan.  Paul says it well… here is the complete article.
