Assemblymember Chris Holden presented his legislative update to the Pasadena City Council Monday, which included two local budget victories: $5 million to the Pasadena Central Library and $3 million to Rose Bowl Stadium. 

On June 30, the Legislature and Governor Newsom approved $5 million for the Pasadena Central Library for their infrastructural improvements, retrofitting needs and ADA amenities for building access, inclusivity, and usage.

“These funds will be able to support the necessary retrofitting of the library,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “It makes me happy to be able to support local art and education programming by helping this community staple thrive.”

The State’s Legislature and Governor Newsom also approved $3 million for the Rose Bowl Stadium for gas and water infrastructure improvements and the historical preservation of the iconic venue.

“The Rose Bowl is a San Gabriel Valley community landmark, and I am proud to say that through this grant we are able to help this historic stadium live on with audiences from all over the country and from our local communities,” said Assemblymember Holden.

On June 30th, the Legislature and Governor Newsom approved $3 million for the Rose Bowl Stadium for gas and water infrastructure improvements and the historical preservation of the iconic venue.

“We thank Assemblymember Holden for his continued support of the Rose Bowl Stadium. As we celebrate our centennial, we look back to those that have made this amazing accomplishment possible and forward to those that will ensure another 100 years of relevance for this iconic building and grounds. Assemblymember Holden represents the best of both of those groups having been a champion of the stadium for many years, and one of the biggest advocates for future investments in this historic place. He continues to step up for the Rose Bowl Stadium, the City of Pasadena, and the entire San Gabriel Valley,” said Jens Weiden, Chief Executive Officer of the Rose Bowl Stadium.
