I am very excited to share with everyone that the highly anticipated South Lake Avenue Streetscape Improvement project will begin this Monday, August 11, 2008.  This project will not only enhance South Lake Avenue's appearance, but will help to conserve water and power for years to come with the installation of new high-tech irrigation and electrical systems.  The South Lake Streetscape Improvement project is headed by the South Lake Business Association in partnership with the City of Pasadena.  Please be sure to check the South Lake Business Association's website for more information and updates.
