Pasadena Soft-Story Ordinance

Pasadena Soft-Story Retrofit Ordinance #7345 was approved and adopted by the City Council on May 20, 2019.

The scope of the ordinance intends to reduce the risk of full or partial collapse in multi-story wood building containing exterior Soft, Weak, or Open-Front Walls (SWOF) lines. The ordinance mandates the evaluation and possible strengthening of exterior SWOF lines around the building. The City of Pasadena has identified buildings that typically contain these SWOF lines and are now required to get evaluated by an engineer or architect to determine Pasadena soft story retrofit needs.
