Community Invited to Second Public Meeting on February 16, 2016; Written Response Deadline Extended
SOUTH PASADENA, Calif. (February 4, 2016) – As part of the analysis associated with the proposed Mission Place Project, Transpo Group -- experts in transportation planning and engineering -- completed a comprehensive parking study detailing the effects of the project on community parking issues. This study will be released on February 4, 2016 and will be available for review at www.spusd.net.
The study is not a formal part of the draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) and does not by law require a public hearing or comment period due to the project’s proximity to the Metro Gold Line. Even so, School Board and District administration recognize the importance of this dimension of the project, value the community’s response to it and therefore added this study to the assessment.
In an effort to encourage broad-based involvement in this process, the School Board and District officials have taken the following steps:
- A meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, February 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the board room at the South Pasadena Unified School District offices at 1020 El Centro Street. The proposed project developer, Legacy Partners, will make a brief presentation to the attendees followed by a question, answer, and comment period.
- The deadline for written comments in response to the DEIR has been extended to March 4, 2016.
The School Board expects to vote on the certification of the DEIR, the Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA) and the ground lease at the end of April or early May 2016. Both the School Board and District continue to welcome comments and input from the community.
