After seven years of debate and discussion, South Pasadena officials next week will unveil a draft of a General Plan that will shape land use in the San Gabriel Valley city.
The plan will receive its first public viewing at a community workshop in the library.
"This plan will set in place the policy that will guide the city's land-use decisions for many years to come. It sets priorities for the city," City Manager Sean Joyce said.
The General Plan will decide whether a part of South Pasadena would become more commercial and what form development should take within the city, officials said.
The community workshop will begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 20 in the library community room.
