Since Pasadena's founding, the city has evolved from a tiny colony of health seekers into a well-known and highly developed part of greater Los Angeles. Yet as the town's center has urbanized, a small neighborhood west of the Rose Bowl has fought for more than a century to maintain its rural character. Beginnings In the 1880s, John Muir would stroll across the Arroyo Seco to enjoy the wildflowers that grew on these hillsides. He wasn't the only one.

Over the protests of District 5 Councilman Ed Struiksma, the San Diego Housing Commission voted Thursday to place a 34-unit public housing project for its poorest tenants in a Linda Vista neighborhood struggling to shed its low-rent image.

It was easy to envy David Reaume on a recent afternoon as he stood on the deck of his home, nestled high on a hillside in the Linda Vista neighborhood of Pasadena. "The view here is usually just incredible," Reaume told a visitor as he gazed upon the Rose Bowl and off into the San Gabriel Valley, which on this day was cloaked in a light haze. Reaume is a serial Linda Vista homeowner.

A decision on the fate of Arnold Williams' proposed home in the Linda Vista Annandale neighborhood has been delayed to April 3, when the Board of Directors will take another vote. City directors voted 3-2 Tuesday to allow Williams to construct his three-story home on Glen Oaks Boulevard, but the vote did not legally qualify under City Charter rules, which require a four-vote majority.

Residents of the tony neighborhoods near the iconic 90-year-old stadium say NFL games would unleash rowdy fans and cause traffic jams at the expense of homeowners and recreational users. More than 25,000 vehicles would come to the Rose Bowl on game days, according to a city study, shutting down Brookside Park, the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center, Kidspace Museum and Brookside Golf Course on game days.
