LEARNING OBJECTIVES The objective of this program is to have an interactive public forum envisioning and planning for a livable and sustainable Pasadena and the greater San Gabriel Valley. Co-sponsoring the event with Streetsblog is AIA Pasadena Foothill Chapter, Pasadena Magazine , and KPCC. This program will provide 2.0 AIA/CES Learning Units to AIA members in attendance. The subject of this forum is “Sidewalks” which includes the following:
Understanding importance of sidewalks, their design, and how they fit into making a street a great street
Understanding the Social, Economic, and Political Life of Sidewalks
How sidewalks, and pedestrian planning, help make great communities for great cities
How do the items discussed in the event play into a vision for Pasadena.
LA Streetsblog Board Member James Rojas will lead one of his interactive planning programs helping participants envision what their perfect street would look like. Rojas has completed these workshops around the world, recently completing one at Occidental College as part of their event with Los Angeles City Planning General Manager Michael LoGrande.
Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, Mark Gangi of Gangi Architects and of AIA Pasadena Foothill Chapter, Felicia Williams of C.I.C.L.E. and Erlinda Romo with the Pasadena Playhouse District will all discuss how what we’ve learned earlier matters to Pasadena and the greater San Gabriel Valley. The panel will be moderated by Linda Immediato, the Editor-in-Chief of Pasadena Magazine.
