Rose Bowl Loop Safety Issues Top City Committee Meeting Monday

Published : Monday, March 4, 2019 | 5:38 AM

The Public Safety Committee of the Pasadena City Council meets Monday to hear the Pasadena Police Chief’s Monthly Report, and other information items such as the Rose Bowl Loop Roadway Improvements and Safety Enhancement project, and a presentation by the Pasadena Fire Department.

City Manager Steve Mermell is expected to report on the Rose Bowl Loop safety enhancement project, which included sealing the entire loop with slurry, widening and coloring of the pedestrian walkway, and installing delineators to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety. All the projects described have been completed.

New features were introduced in January 2018, which required additional discussions and community consultation, especially a plan to install stop signs along the loop.

Since that time, City staff has revised the concepts and is now planning to modify roadway striping and install delineators at the intersection of Rosemont Avenue/Seco Street, where there are frequently more pedestrians at any given time than the other intersections.

Fire Chief Bertral Washington will provide a presentation about the Commission on Fire Accreditation International’s assessment about the Pasadena Fire Department’s use of its Geographic Information Systems during past events in the City, including the Tournament of Roses last New Year’s Day, and its compliance with other accreditation requirements.

Police Chief John Perez’s Monthly Report will include a Change of Command Review of the significant events and changes since he took over from former Chief Phillip Sanchez, community outreach and engagement activities, and organizational development efforts that the Department is undertaking to improve law enforcement and crime prevention tasks in the community.

The Public Safety Committee meeting begins at 4:15 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, Room S249 at City Hall.
