Pasadena : Northwest Zoning Changed

The Board of City Directors, its members saying they were acting to protect single-family homes, has rezoned more than 100 acres in northwest Pasadena.

The massive rezoning will prevent future apartment and condominium developments in areas that are predominately made up of single-family houses.

The rezoning follows a 90-day moratorium imposed in April that barred residential development in several sections of the northwest area while the city's Planning Department studied the issue.

Also under study are several other areas of the city where officials say single-family homes are being encroached by large condo and apartment complexes.
