South Fair Oaks Specific Plan

South Fair Oaks Specific Plan Area


The South Fair Oaks Specific Plan received approval from the City Council on October 17, 2022. The plan is anticipated to become effective in Mid-November. The SFOSP Update area is located in the southwest region of the City of Pasadena in Los Angeles County. It is generally bound by Del Mar Boulevard to the north, the City of South Pasadena to the south, Pasadena Avenue to the west, and the Metro L Line Right-of-Way (ROW) and Arroyo Parkway to the east. The approved plan includes new regulations and development standards that would help implement the plan’s vision for a creative, innovative, and health-oriented mixed-use district that provides multi-family housing, neighborhood-serving amenities, medical services, and educational and employment opportunities accessible to transit for residents, employees, students, and faculty.
