Neighbors’ Outcry Forces City Officials to Rethink Converting a Colorado Blvd. Ramada Inn into Homeless Housing

Public outcry at last night’s community meeting about the possible conversion of a Ramada Inn at 2156 East Colorado Boulevard into a permanent supportive housing residence for the homeless has apparently halted the project.

City officials Thursday morning indicated the community’s reaction was negative to the degree that the project at that location, which had been set to be considered at the City Council on Monday night, will now be pulled from the Council’s agenda.

At the beginning of the month, the City Council amended the city’s zoning code in order to allow hotels and motels in Pasadena to be converted into permanent supportive housing.

Then on October 16, Pasadena Now published a report that a proposal was in the works to convert the Ramada Inn. The community meeting was to discuss the proposal.
