Below is some general information about Pasadena:
Pasadena is a city in the U.S. state of Texas, within Houston, The Woodlands, Sugar Land metropolitan area. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the city’s population is 149,043 making it the seventeenth most populous city in the state of Texas as well as the second-largest city in Harris County. The area was founded in 1893 by John H. Burnett of Galveston and named the area after Pasadena, California because of the perceived lush vegetation. The Pasadena Volunteer Fire Department is the largest all volunteer municipal fire department in the United States.
Pasadena voted to incorporate in 1923, but residents decided to cancel the incorporation one year later. Pasadena incorporated in 1928. Because of the 1928 incorporation, Houston did not incorporate Pasadena’s territory into its city limits, while Houston annexed surrounding areas that were unincorporated. By the mid-20th century Pasadena’s economy had become strongly tied to petroleum and other heavy industry. NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) was established near Pasadena in 1963 with the residential community of Clear Lake City, partially under Pasadena’s jurisdiction, established nearby. These developments helped to diversify the town’s economy significantly. Former US Congressman and city councilman, Ray Barnhart described the city at the time as a lovely community but politically corrupt. Barnhart recalled that a half dozen Pasadena officials were indicted in the late 1950s and early 1960s for public corruption. In 1965, Houston Post reporter Gene Goltz Received the Pulitzer Prize for his exposure of government corruption in Pasadena, Texas, which resulted in widespread reforms. The nearby Bayport Industrial District, one of the nation’s largest chemical processing complexes, is vital to employment. High-tech businesses in the area related to the JSC have developed as well, and the opening of the Bayport shipping terminal is rapidly adding to the city’s economic base.
The city’s key economic sectors include exploration for petroleum and gas, petroleum refining, petrochemical processing, maritime shipping, aerospace, and healthcare. The city’s economy is closely linked to the nearby Houston Ship Channel and the Bayport shipping terminal and industrial district, as well as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in the bordering Clear Lake Area. The Pasadena Refining System, a partnership of Petrobras and Astra Holding USA, is headquartered in Pasadena.
The city has several museums, including the Pasadena Historical Museum, the Bay Area Museum and Armand Bayou Nature Center. Pasadena also has a community theater, an annual rodeo, and the Pasadena Philharmonic. The city’s newspaper is the Pasadena Citizen. The Champion paper mill closed in 2005. Because of the odor from the plant, Pasadena had been dubbed by locals with the nickname Stinkadena. Several country music songs have been recorded with Pasa-get-down-dena as the title including Kenefick on their album Hard Road. John Travolta, Debra Winger and other actors came to the city to film the 1980 hit movie Urban Cowboy, which depicted life and young love in Pasadena. The film centered on the city’s honky-tonk bar Gilley’s, which was co-owned by country music star Mickey Gilley. In 1989 Gilley’s suffered an arson fire that gutted the interior, but the building’s shell was still standing until 2006 when it was demolished by the Pasadena Independent School District, its current owner. Only the old sound recording studio remains. Gilley still resides in Pasadena.
Pasadena is served by three freeway systems. Interstate 45 is the closest interstate to the Pasadena city limits. The main freeway artery is the Pasadena Freeway (State Highway 225). The east side of the Sam Houston Tollway (Beltway 8) runs through the eastern portion of the city. The Harris County Toll Road Authority sells EZ Tags in the city. Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, Texas (METRO) operates a park & ride service from the Pasadena Town Square Mall. This joint venture between Harris County, the city of Pasadena and METRO extended select trips. METRO operates four trips during the morning and five trips during the afternoon rush hours. Harris County Transit operates a bus route that runs through most of the city, stopping at health centers, shopping centers, colleges, and other venues, with connections to neighboring cites. The Pasadena Park and Ride lot is located on the north side of Pasadena Town Square.
