Economic Development Strategic Plan

This Economic Development Strategic Plan provides an assessment of the existing conditions that drive the economy in Pasadena and is intended to help local stakeholders and decision makers to implement strategies that will contribute to the City’s future economic health. The EDSP includes strategic recommendations to enhance Pasadena’s business climate, ensure the fiscal health of the city, and support economic growth in a manner consistent with the City’s character.

A distinguished group of business leaders assessed the EDSP, reviewed Pasadena’s comparative advantages and developed a set of recommendations for the City Manager to review as various policies are brought to the City Council for consideration. The combined experiences represented on the Task Force provided for an informed discussion about what really drives local investment and employment decisions in Pasadena.
