Pasadena Picked for “City of the Future” Top Spots


Pasadena has been named one of the Top 10 “Cities of the Future” by fDi Magazine from the Financial Times. This year, Pasadena again earned recognition in the Infrastructure category but, for the first time, also placed fourth in the overall Small City category. 

“We are honored to have Pasadena recognized as one of the leading cities of the future,” Mayor Johnny Isbell said. “Our city is committed to embracing business development and improving the quality of life for our residents.”

Pasadena was judged against 422 cities across North and South America from data collected by fDi Magazine. The city was in the Small Cities category, which includes cities with a population base between 100,000 - 350,000. Pasadena was the only Texas city to place in the top ten in any category and, in the overall category for Small Cities, was one of only five cities honored in the United States
