The NAACP Pasadena Branch will host the Pasadena African American History Walk Saturday, Oct. 21, a guided 3.5-mile tour that explores significant historic sites of the city’s Black community.
Branch President Allen Edson, Branch President, said that the walk is an opportunity to learn more about meaningful historical events that shaped today’s local Black community.
“The tour reflects some moments in history in Pasadena for the Black community and an opportunity to provide some education about those moments,” Edson said. “The audience typically has been people that have been in Pasadena for 20 years or less. So they weren’t aware of this history, and me personally, I’ve learned much of this history in the past 10 years.”
The walk was originally designed as a bus tour, Edson added, but due to the pandemic, it evolved into walking tours and a bicycle tour. He said that this year’s walk will include some new locations in the route to highlight some current events that are very talked about.
“We made some additions to this particular version of the tour to really highlight some current events that are very talked about,” he said.
“Those are about the history of the Pasadena Improvement Association, one of the court cases that came about because of the Fairchild v. Raines involving a city resident who was denied the right to live in a certain neighborhood because she was African American. We also discuss the incident of a city employee who was denied the ride on a float because city officials found out she was African American and claimed they couldn’t afford a float that year.”
“So as we extended the tour, we added some additional sites such as the site of the freeway stub once planned for the 710 freeway extension north, and the changes to zoning regulations that will increase shelter capacity for the homeless community in Pasadena to fill up the program.”
The walk will also delve into the city’s heritage, including insights into the Brookside Plunge, which served as the public pool before the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center came to be. Participants will also discover the pivotal figures who have left their mark on Pasadena’s African American community.
Edson said that the collaboration between the NAACP Pasadena Branch, Day One, and the Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition contributes to the success of the event and the broader community.
“It just adds value to the tour. It helps us attract a broader audience. It helps to provide education to more people, which helps,” Edson said. “And I think in the bigger picture, you want to always grow your relationships with the community.”
The event is part of Walktober, a month-long celebration of walking and city streets, sponsored by the City of Pasadena, Day One, and the Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition. Walktober offers various walks and tours throughout October, highlighting the benefits of walking for exercise, mental health, community engagement, city exploration, and daily commuting.
This year marks the first time the City of Pasadena is sponsoring Walktober and the fourth time the NAACP Pasadena Branch is partnering with Day One and the Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition for the African American History Walk.
The walk is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about Pasadena’s African American history and culture. To register for the event or to learn more, visit www.eventbrite.com/e/pasadena-african-american-history-walk-tickets-123456789.

The City Council on Monday voted 5-1 with two members abstaining to deny an appeal and approve the application for concept design review for a project to be built at 740-790 E. Green Street.
“We’re looking at a project that has been downsized significantly, is essentially a by-right project and provides 41 affordable housing units,” said Councilmember Steve Madison. We need affordable housing in this city.”
Madison introduced the motion to support the staff recommendation and also called for some introspection on City commissions.
Madison’s motion was seconded by Jessica Rivas.
Justin Jones and Jason Lyon recused themselves and Vice Mayor Felica Williams voted against the item.
The appeal came to the City Council several times before the public hearing was successfully heard.
The project underwent environmental review by the commission which resulted in preparation of a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND), which includes mitigation measures to reduce possible environmental impacts to less than significant levels. The Concept Design Review application for the project was approved last June 13.
The commission found that the project is consistent with the City’s General Plan and Housing Element for the district.
But members of the public opposed the project.
“There have been many important changes to this project that have significantly improved it,” wrote Megan Foker of Livable Pasadena. “Additionally, we support the much-needed affordable housing that will be provided once the project is completed. Yet however beneficial and well designed a project is, we must still have a full understanding of the environmental impact it will have.”
Livable Pasadena called for a full and open discussion of all the potential environmental impacts that have been raised by residents.
“City Staff relies on the Design Commission to have reviewed the many serious issues at play here and to have responded to public concern,” the group said in a correspondence to the City Council “Yet, at that hearing, the potential impacts were discussed only for a few minutes and minimal questions were asked.”
According to Livable Pasadena, the Commission merely noted that the traffic impacts had been sufficiently mitigated by a change in use to a part of the project [from commercial to office space], that a report had been prepared finding no other problems, and then the discussion moved on to design particulars.
According to an agenda staff report, design review is a three-phase process that includes preliminary preview, concept and then final design review.
Each phase builds upon the other as the applicant must respond to comments provided during the previous phase of review. Preliminary design review is informational only.
Concept design reviews require a public hearing, certification of the CEQA document and if approved, grants the entitlement.
Final design review focuses on items such as colors, materials, and final details.
As part of the design review conducted, and the Design Commission reviewed the project as it relates to a number of design guidelines/policies that are contained in the Land Use Element of the General Plan and the Private Realm Design Guidelines of the Central District Specific Plan.
The Design Commission reviewed and unanimously approved the application and CEQA document, 6-0 with one member absent and two abstaining on June 13 at a noticed public hearing.
The proposed two detached buildings containing three to five stories will include 14,346 square feet of office space, 263 residential units, 416 parking spaces and 4,033 square foot pocket park.
In a letter to the City Council, the Chamber of Commerce expressed support for the project.
“The Board of Directors of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and Civic Association fully supports the development of the mixed-use project at 770 E. Green Street,” said Chamber President Paul Little. “The project will activate an underused portion of Green Street and provide more than 200 housing units, with affordable housing on-site, which is much needed in Pasadena.”

A City-sponsored presentation on Thursday, Oct. 26, will provide insights into the development of bridge barrier concepts for the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena.
Hayden Melbourn, Principal Engineer at the Department of Public Works, said the meeting will allow community members to learn about the process that the City, the design team, and the task force working group have been working on to develop various new concepts for the bridge barriers.
People at the meeting will also be able to see visualizations of what the barrier concepts will look like using live walkthroughs, animations, and still images, Melbourn said.
“Our key objective is to get public feedback and to gather comments, concerns, and ideas based on the concepts presented,” Melbourn explained. “This will help us move the project forward in a direction that creates collaboration with everyone involved. To assist, the design team will use live walkthroughs on and around the bridge showing the various bridge concepts and will give attendees the opportunity to visualize the potential options.”
The presentation will feature speakers with expertise in bridge architecture, historic preservation, and various fields. Experts such as structural engineers, first responders, and mental health professionals will be available for questions.
Community input will be important for moving the project forward in a collaborative manner, the City said.
The event accommodates community feedback both in person and virtually. A comprehensive online survey will be distributed to collect input.
The presentation will be made both in person and online as well for those who couldn’t attend.
A recording of the presentation will also be made available on the City’s project website the next day so people who couldn’t attend can still view what was presented and discussed.
To attend in person, go to the City Council Chamber, Room S249 at City Hall, before the meeting begins at 6 p.m.
To attend virtually, visit https://bit.ly/ColoradoBridgeMeeting before 6 p.m. on Oct. 26.

In the heart of the Arroyo, a remarkable initiative is creating ripples, not just in the pool, but also in the lives of individuals with diverse needs. The Rose Bowl Aquatics Center (RBAC), a nonprofit organization, is the proud home of the Rays Swim Team. This inclusive swim team is redefining the boundaries of team sports. The Rays Swim Team strives to provide a nurturing space where children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities can thrive, both in the pool and beyond.
According to Cameron Lee, the Adaptive Programs Manager, the Rays Swim Team is a close-knit community of swimmers where uniqueness is celebrated, and potential knows no limits. The Adaptive Program is important to the RBAC’s commitment to water safety and wellness. This includes the Learn to Swim program and the Rays Swim Team.
Lee shared, “We strive to provide skill development and a sense of camaraderie to those traditionally sidelined in conventional sports. Our community includes individuals with autism spectrum disorders, Down Syndrome, attention deficit disorder, cerebral palsy, motor planning problems, and a lack of coordination. It’s vital to emphasize that our coaches set our program apart. They are not merely instructors but architects of empowerment, builders of confidence, and navigators of dreams.”
Inclusivity is at the heart of the Rays Swim Team, and the team’s culture champions the belief that every individual, regardless of their abilities, deserves a chance to shine. Through unwavering support and perseverance, participants develop their swimming abilities and transcend boundaries that historically have defined the sport.
Coach Peyton, a CSArts-SVG senior working towards a career in special education, shares the sentiment: “Being a part of this team is truly special. There’s something magical about watching swimmers and their families cheer each other on that just brings a smile to your face. Come join us and feel the vibes for yourself. We have a swim-raiser and are participating in the Adaptive Sports Festival on November 4, 2023, at Brookside Park and the RBAC. We’d love to see you on deck or at the festival.”
Within the Rays Swim Team, success stories are abundant. Participants who once doubted their abilities now proudly identify as “swimmers.” The team’s commitment to fostering an environment of encouragement, patience, and respect has transformed lives in profoundly inspirational ways. Some team members, like Coach JC, are passing on their positivity, skills, and perseverance to a new generation of swimmers. Others, such as Coach Peyton and Coach Cassie bring their personal life experiences, boundless optimism, and empathy to the program.
Coach Cassie, who has witnessed individuals come to the team with fears, anxieties, and uncertainties about getting in the water, shares, “It never fails to bring me joy when I see that same person fall in love with swimming.” She also proudly notes that the team recently celebrated a swimmer who competed in the Special Olympics.
The Rays Swim Team and program have accomplished much more than making a mere splash – they’ve dived into uncharted waters and emerged with top scores.

The Pasadena-Altadena Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, is looking ahead to celebrating their 60th anniversary with a gala on Dec. 2, at The Westin Pasadena.
The Links Incorporated is a renowned volunteer service organization dedicated to enriching and sustaining the cultural and economic identities of people of African ancestry.
Founded in Philadelphia in 1946, this not-for-profit corporation now has over 17,000 members who are professional women of African descent spread over 299 chapters in 41 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, and the UK.
The local Chapter has been serving the Pasadena-Altadena area since 1963, a driving force in the community comprising a diverse group of professionals, including physicians, dentists, judges, attorneys, engineers, educators and others.

Many of those girls would go on to graduate from prestigious institutions like Harvard University, Stanford University, Howard University, and many more schools.
The group has also collaborated with and supported numerous community organizations, including the ArtCenter College of Design, the City of Pasadena, First AME Church Food Pantry, Pasadena Unified School District, Friends in Deed, and many others.
Today, The Links Incorporated continues its legacy, focusing on youth services, national and international initiatives, the arts, as well as health and human services.
