East Colorado Boulevard

East Colorado Specific Plan - Adopted November 24, 2003

The East Colorado Boulevard Specific Plan was created to encourage vibrant mix of land uses, a unified streetscape and a series of distinctive places along a portion of Colorado Boulevard, approximately 3 miles in length, extending eastward from Catalina Avenue to the eastern City limits at Sycamore Avenue. It is comprised of six sub-areas (i.e. Mid-City sub-area, College District sub-area, Gold Line sub-area, Route 66 sub-area, Lamanda Park sub-area, and Chihuahuita sub-area)

The Plan area includes all parcels with frontage on East Colorado Blvd. between Catalina Avenue and the eastern City boundary and all parcels with frontage on Allen Avenue between Colorado Blvd. and the 210 Freeway.

The development of the East Colorado Blvd. Specific Plan included an extensive community outreach effort, including numerous community meetings and presentations. In addition, a group of local residents and merchants participated in monthly meetings on a “Coordinating Committee” to guide the direction of the Plan. The East Colorado Boulevard Specific Plan was approved by the Pasadena City Council on May 12, 2003.
