Project Summary

The Cooling Pasadena project is one of several projects the City is working on to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and promote environmentally sustainable practices. GHG emissions are contributing to climate change, which is leading to increased temperatures in many communities, including Pasadena. This project will identify strategies for cooling that can be applied to Pasadena’s sidewalks, streets, and alleys. The resulting toolkit will serve as a community and city resource for addressing extreme heat in these public spaces.

Survey Purpose
The purpose of this survey is to collect feedback from community members like you to learn what impacts you feel from extreme heat and how it impacts the way you travel, and where you think focus is needed to help cool the sidewalks, streets, and alleys in Pasadena. Visit bit.ly/CoolingPasadena for more information. This survey focuses on two specific geographic areas: The Lincoln Avenue neighborhood and the Holly Street/Ramona Street area.

Background
This project, which focuses on 2 neighborhoods in Pasadena, is funded through the Sustainable Communities Program operated by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). This program provides direct technical assistance to SCAG member jurisdictions to complete planning and policy efforts that enable implementation of Connect SoCal, SCAG’s Regional Transportation Plans/Sustainable Communities Strategy. These regional goals inform city-specific planning efforts, including Pasadena’s 2018 Climate Action Plan, a strategic framework for measuring, planning, and reducing the City’s share of GHG emissions.
