|Streetscape Update! |
Phase I of the South Lake Streetscape Improvement Project is now complete! Headed by the South Lake Business Association in partnership with City of Pasadena the project will not only enhance the appearance of South Lake Avenue, but also help conserve water and power for years to come with its upgraded irrigation and electrical systems. These upgrades, in addition to landscaping improvements, have been completed for the two Del Mar traffic islands and the five Lake Avenue street medians. The Del Mar traffic island improvements also included the installation of new Date Palms with uplighting, new shrubbery, groundcover and wood mulch.
