City seeks feedback on temporary safety measures for pedestrians and cyclists being tested

The City of Pasadena’s Department of Transportation plans to host a community meeting on Tuesday, June 25, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Jefferson Branch Library, located at 1500 E. Villa St., to discuss temporary improvements being tested along Allen Avenue, between Walnut Street and Villa Street. 

The meeting aims to gather feedback from the community on the recently implemented changes, which include improved crosswalks, curb extensions at street corners that provide extra space for pedestrians and shorten crossing distances, and new bicycle lanes between Villa Street and Corson Street.

According to the City, the goals of the “Activate Allen Avenue” project are to re-envision Allen Avenue, between Villa Street and Colorado Boulevard, test improvements included in the Allen Station Gold Line Safety Enhancements Plan, promote active mobility as a way to improve public health and quality of life, improve safety and economic vitality for local businesses by creating people-oriented streets, create a more welcoming street for people using all modes of transportation, and gather feedback from the community on temporary treatments.

As part of the community engagement process, members of the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) participated in a guided walking tour on Allen Avenue on Thursday, February 29, 2024, to showcase and collect feedback on the recently installed Quick Build elements. Walking Tour Guide handouts were distributed to CAC members before departing. The City has also committed to helping local businesses thrive throughout the project by keeping them informed and encouraging their participation in events and providing input.

The proposed design for the corridor, which can be viewed by clicking to zoom in on the project website, includes a variety of treatments to improve safety. Pending the findings of the Quick Build, the City may implement the project with long-term materials. 

The tentative project schedule and updates can be found by subscribing to the project’s mailing list.

For those unable to attend the June 25 meeting, feedback can be submitted through the City’s website. Questions can be directed to ActivateAllenAvenue@gmail.com.
