Pasadena Council to Consider Arroyo Maintenance

Maintenance has been a big concern for Arroyolovers for a long time. Now Pasadena City Manager Steve Mermel has proposed a plan to move the maintenance function for the Arroyo and other Pasadena parks into a new city department called the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department.

Some prominent Arroyo activists have raised concerns about the move, but the Recreation and Parks Commission recommended it unanimously.

Let us know if you think this is a positive move. Email to:
