Pasadena : Parking Plans Studied

Shuttle buses and on-street parking are among possible parking improvements in Old Pasadena that will be studied by consultants hired Tuesday by the City Directors.

The directors approved a $35,000 contract with Rich & Associates for a three-month study.

Because city-owned parking structures are filled about twice a week, Old Pasadena merchants have asked for a moratorium on new restaurants. The board also directed the city attorney to determine whether the city can legally impose a moratorium on one area and not citywide.
