Pasadena’s Transportation Advisory Commission will meet Thursday, April 26, to receive updates on current and upcoming projects related to transportation services throughout the City. Among the items on the agenda are the Orange Grove Boulevard Lane Configuration Project and the Union Street bike lane project.

Assistant City Manager Julie Gutierrez is also scheduled to provide a presentation to the commission about Pasadena’s Join the Conversation online survey, which intends to gather input from the community as the City prepares to set its budget priorities for fiscal year 2019.

Through the survey, the City encourages residents to share their ideas about what’s important to them as far as City services are concerned.

Among the priorities residents have historically identified as important in the area of transportation is the repair of streets and roads in the City.

The commission will hear reports about the Orange Grove Boulevard Lane Reconfiguration project, the Union Street Protected Bike Lane project, and a concept study about enhancements required for the Metro Gold Line’s Allen Station in Pasadena.

The commission, composed of nine members, advises the City Council concerning policies affecting Pasadena’s transportation system.

Thursday’s meeting starts at 4 p.m. at the Department of Transportation office at 221 E. Walnut Street, Room 210.

Public comments on matters not on the agenda are allowed early in the meeting.
