Pasadena : East Washington Renewal

A plan to revitalize East Washington Boulevard from Catalina Avenue to Altadena Drive was approved last week by the Board of Directors after nearly a year's study by a city steering committee.

The plan calls for establishing a business association, improving the facades of buildings, planting trees, creating more parking spaces, controlling auto traffic and adding benches, bicycle racks and drinking fountains to encourage pedestrian traffic.

Start-up costs, estimated at $331,556, will be included in the fiscal 1992 city budget.
