General Plan Implementation Program

After an extensive visioning and public engagement process to update Pasadena’s General Plan, the City will now embark on a monumental effort to implement the 2015 General Plan. The last time the City embarked on such an effort was over 20 years ago and it took over a decade to update the zoning code and establish the existing specific plans. This time around, it is anticipated that the General Plan Implementation Program would take approximately three years and would complete the following key tasks:

  • Create new zoning districts to correspond to each new Land Use Designation identified in the Land Use Diagram of the Land Use Element; and
  • Update each of the specific plan’s geographic boundaries, policies, development standards, zoning, and design guidelines to implement the General Plan.
