Support Slow Streets at MTIC

The Mobility and Transportation Infrastructure Commission will make a recommendation on the Slow Streets on Tuesday, Dec 19 at 6:30pm. Email comments of support to mticpubliccomments@southpasadenaca.gov and join us in person!

Our petition has collected 174 signatures, including 123 residents and 44 people near the pilot installations. This is huge support for a small town like South Pas! But influential voices are opposed to these changes.

These changes are needed to keep us safe, and support a healthier, more sustainable way of life. The city will not continue them unless you demand it. See the MTIC meeting agenda for details.

Historic Walking Tour

SPAS and the South Pasadena Preservation Foundation have partnered up to offer a docent-led walking tour of our historic Mission Street. RSVP is required and we have reached our capacity limit. Please contact us if you are interested in a future walking tour.
