What do Pasadena, Calif., and Provo have in common? Besides both having a nationally recognized parade, Provo’s community development department is suggesting city leaders look at Pasadena as a prototype for city planning and have introduced new multi-family zoning and design standards as a step in that direction.
Councilman Sterling Beck agreed and added he would like to see design options that offer indoor bicycle parking similar to what New York City has implemented as a way to encourage bike use.
Mayor John Curtis said, “This is all part of the 2030 visioning and city planning.”
