Congressman Adam Schiff’s legislation of 10 years ago (H.R.355, 2005) authorized the Secretary of the Interior/National Park Service (NPS) to conduct the Rim of the Valley Corridor Resource Study to examine the feasibility of:

1) protecting wildlife corridors,

2) connecting trail systems,

3) ensuring access for recreational user,

4) preserving species and habitats,

5) protecting historically significant landscapes, districts, sites and structures, and

6) meeting the needs of local communities within, or in the vicinity of, the Rim of the Valley Corridor.

NPS released the study in early 2015.  The combined acreage (500,000+) now is proposed as the largest “urban park” in the nation, extending from Magic Mountain-to-Pasadena-to-Malibu and intended to be under management by the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.

The proposed boundaries include Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco, of which nearly 50% is privately-owned residential property in San Rafael, Linda Vista and Arroyo-Windsor neighborhoods.

Similarly, local water sources upon which Pasadena residents depend fall within the proposed boundaries. 

Rep. Schiff has requested local input to this study prior to final legislation, writing in the Los Feliz Ledger  (April 29, 2014):

“I would particularly encourage residents to share their views on where the boundaries of the Rim of the Valley Park should be and what form it should take.” 

Mayor Tornek now has extended an invitation to do just that. 

Please join us Wednesday evening for a discussion that will begin to shape the future of Pasadena for generations to come!
