Yes to ADUs! It’s time to amend the accessory dwelling unit regulations in Pasadena.

Pasadena has the opportunity to help alleviate our housing crisis, but our City Council needs to hear from you! 

On Monday, December 11, 2018 at 7 PM, the Pasadena City Council will hear recommendations and comments about amending the Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) regulations to allow building more back houses, also known as as granny flats, backyard cottages, or secondary units. These units are an innovative, affordable, and effective option for adding much-needed housing in California.

Please join Greater Pasadena Affordable Housing Group (GPAHG), POP! and many more housing advocates on:

Monday, Dec. 11th at 7pm.
The Pasadena City Council Chambers.
100 North Garfield Avenue, Room S249 (the SE corner of the Second Floor of City Hall)

This is what we are recommending to the City Council:

Tell Carmel and the Planning Commission: “We do not need more luxury housing!”

It’s time to defend affordable housing . . . again!

Last April, many housing advocates and tenants joined us at a Planning Commission hearing to urge the commissioners to not approve a project allowing Carmel Partners to destroy almost 200 units of affordable housing and replace them with over 300 units of luxury housing. The Planning commission tabled the issue thanks to your help!

But once again, we need your help to stop the demolition and replacement of affordable housing with more luxury housing.

The Pasadena Planning Commission will hear comments on the Environmental Impact Report (IER) of Carmel’s proposed project on Wednesday, October 25 at 6:30 PM in Council Chambers (Room S249).

Ask yourself, does Pasadena really need more luxury housing? You know the right answer and we are urging you to join us and tell the Planning Commission to say “no” to Carmel unless their project includes mostly affordable housing. 

E-mail us at if you would like add your voice in support of affordable housing and wish to testify at next week’s hearing —
