Who Is the Civic Center Coalition?

We are Pasadena residents who are passionate about our city.  We are architects, economists, urban planners, real estate investors, historians, preservationists and community activists. We came together when we learned that the City Manager’s proposal for a massive hotel development on the entire YWCA block will destroy the civic center gardens along Garfield and Holly streets across from City Hall and encroach on the Pasadena Robinson Memorial.
