  13. 13. What  Next?   Brainstorm   Execute   Visualize   Refine   Evaluate   Refine   Observe   Understand   Synthesize   Implement   Research   www.thealannote.com  
  14. 14. EVs  won’t  work…   •  If  they’re  looked  at  individually   •  EVs  work  when  complimented  with  other   mode  choices  and  correct  density/land  uses   www.thealannote.com  
  15. 15. Pasadena   •  The  City  of  Pasadena  currently  has   –  The  Metro  Goldline   –  Many  TOD  sta:on  sites   –  Trip  Reduc:on  Ordinance   –  ARTS  Bus   –  EV  Charging  Sta:ons   –  Suppor:ve  BIDs   –  Pasadena  Sustainability  Plan  (Green  Team)   www.thealannote.com

  17. 17. Bicycle  Master  Plan   •  Will  inform  residents   the  best  routes  to  bike   •  Set  clear  design   standards  for  bicycle   infrastructure   •  Let  bicycling  become   more  predictable  and   a^rac:ve  for  casual   user   www.thealannote.com  
  18. 18. Complete  Streets  LOS   •  Go  beyond  assessing  level   of  service  for  cars   •  Puts  the  car  on  the  back   burner   •  Priori:zes  buses,   pedestrian,  bicyclist   •  Creates  smarter   intersec:ons  and  more   balanced  streets   www.thealannote.com  
  19. 19. Upgraded  ITS   •  One  cannot  compute  the   LOS  of  new  modes   without  upgraded   infrastructure  to  get   accurate  inputs   •  Will  priori:ze  bikes,   peds,  cars,  buses  once   LOS  is  determined   •  Rebalance  the  streets   www.thealannote.com
