I N T R O : WHAT MADE “MY CITY” POSSIBLE

a. Page 11, Left Column, Paragraph 2 “restore Pasadena to a its rightful position as a model for other cities to emulate,”

As this project was being developed in 2010-2016, critical feedback, guidance and inspiration from Council Member and now Mayor Terry Tornek as to what is possible and a priority gave inspiration to create the “My City” document.

Model City Aspirations: “Restoring…its Rightful Position”

INTRODUCTION a. Page 15, Paragraph 2 “… maps showing California as an island still being produced as late as 1865.” From: Stanford University’s Glen McLaughlin Map Collection: California as an Island” has a collection of hundreds of maps perpetuating the myth: library.stanford.edu/collections/glen-mclaughlin-map-collection-california-island

Though some maps stopped showing California in the mid 1600s, Japanese maps by Shuzo Sato show California as an island in 1865.

Page 19, Right Column, Paragraph 3 Though the City Beautiful Movement inspired results through the 1920s and early 1930s, the actual work of Pasadena’s “City Beautiful Association” occurs before and during World War I. In this second phase, when the Beaux Arts civic center was built, a new Civic Association was formed under the auspices of the Board of Trade and the phrase City Beautiful was no longer being used.

At the Downtown Pasadena Neighborhood Association’s “Mayoral Candidate Forum” of January, 2015, former Pasadena Planning Director Terry Tornek, laid out his vision: “There isn’t really consensus...My first priority would be to try to build that consensus. To try to understand how we can develop in a way that suits Pasadena’s needs, not just the developers needs but meets our community’s needs. I think that’s achievable.…The issue of advocacy about design: The way I started my career on council was in litigation against the City over the IDS project. [see page 89, bottom] And that was kind of a bold stroke, not one that I was happy about, but one that resulted in a change, I think an important change, in the way we do environmental analysis in Pasadena and frankly a much better project that’s emerging on the corner of El Molino and Colorado today. The Passages Project [once the name of this project]...has two pieces. One talks about walkability and making linkages downtown…which should be incorporated in all of the Specific Plans that we’re about to amend. The other piece has to do with changing the way we plan in Pasadena. So, my third priority would be to do bottom-up planning where citizens drive planning instead of City Hall.”
