The Pasadena Public Health Department will be presenting information at two community meetings regarding a draft Urban Wildlife Management Plan. The Plan provides general guidance to members of the public to prevent or minimize human/wildlife interactions, and provides guidance for the City on responding to human/wildlife interaction. The Plan addresses health and safety issues regarding human interactions with coyotes, bears and mountain lions, as well as smaller animals such as squirrels and opossums.
The community meetings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. as follows:
- Wednesday, January 30, 2019, at Frostig School Auditorium (971 N. Altadena Dr.)
- Wednesday, February 13, 2019, at Blair Middle School, Room 135 (1135 S. Euclid Ave.)
The Plan is currently in draft form and is subject to changes and City Council approval later this year. The Plan is also under California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review and will have a separate comment period for that compliance. If you would like to review the Plan and provide any feedback please visit www.cityofpasadena.net/UWMP-comments. Comments may be provided in writing to Michael Johnson, Director of Public Health, 1845 N. Fair Oaks, Pasadena, CA 91103. Please provide feedback and/or comments of the Plan on or before Friday, March 1, 2019.
