Providing Services for Mixed-Use Buildings "Expensive"
Three recent projects in South Pasadena have been built with residential housing in the mix. The latest proposal is part of a redevelopment plan around the City Hall.
Montgomery's other concerns are "that the newest proposed development will overcrowd schools, bring too much traffic to the area and increase demand for services, causing the size of city government to swell."
City planners say the new development will bring in much-needed tax income.
