City officials, thwarted by taxpayers in their efforts to raise revenue through special assessments, are considering a complicated financing plan involving the sale of municipal facilities to pay for millions of dollars in capital improvements. The plan would involve selling several city-owned properties, such as libraries and community buildings, to a recently formed nonprofit corporation run by the three-member Finance Committee of the Board of City Directors.

One of the grand buildings erected during Pasadena's ambitious City Beautiful Movement in the 1920s may become a victim of the state's decision to dismantle redevelopment agencies statewide. The three-story building with the red-tile roof and arched doorways served as a YWCA for decades, during an architectural era when grand public structures were embraced as essential ingredients to a community's success. But after a wealthy Hong Kong businesswoman bought the property 14 years ago, the refuge that once offered patrons a swimming pool, gymnasium and library is now boarded up and empty, its paint peeling.

From the very beginning, Colorado Boulevard was all about the car. Pasadena residents so loved their Ford Model Ts that in 1915 the city was said to have the highest rate of automobile ownership in the world. Colorado was a leg in the famed Route 66 and evolved along with the car culture, with roadside businesses giving way to bigger department stores and eventually to shopping centers. But these days, officials want to tame the famed street. Pasadena is considering plans to narrow portions of Colorado by as much as two lanes and use that space to widen sidewalks and create tiny parks with seating and greenery.
