Arts, Housing, Vending Fees on South Pasadena City Council Agenda

Published : Tuesday, February 5, 2019 | 4:51 PM

The South Pasadena City Council will consider naming five residents to South Pasadena’s new Arts Commission, among other items on the agenda for Wednesday, February 6.

The Arts Commission is part of the City’s public arts initiative adopted by the Council last fall, which set fees on development for public arts projects and created a commission to provide citizen oversight.

The Council will also discuss a proposal to gather community input on two housing initiatives: Additional dwelling units (or ADUs) and inclusionary housing (also known as affordable housing). The Council’s action would authorize staff to conduct community outreach on the two issues in April and develop a plan for Council consideration.

In other actions, the Council may adopt a $138 permit fee for sidewalk vendors. A state law that took effect Jan. 1 authorizes sidewalk vending in all California cities; however local governments are permitted to set restrictions and collect fees from vendors.

The City Council meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6 in the Council Chambers, 1424 Mission St., South Pasadena. Please visit the City’s web site to view the full agenda and staff reports.
