Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) is moving his district office from Pasadena -- where it’s been for 16 years -- to new digs in Burbank, a move that puts the hub more squarely in a redrawn district.
The new office — located at 245 E. Olive Ave., Suite 200 — is centrally located in the redrawn district, which now goes from the western part of Pasadena to West Hollywood.
“It’s pretty much smack-dab in the middle of the district,” Schiff said.
His old office was only about three blocks from his new district boundary, but the location wouldn’t have been as easily accessible to all of his constituents, he added.
The new office has several amenities, including plenty of nearby restaurants and retail stores and free parking.
Still, Schiff said he will miss Pasadena, where he’s had an office since being elected to the state Senate in 1996.
“I have mixed emotions,” he said. “I’ve always had my office there. It’s a wonderful town.”
He said he looks forward to returning to represent areas that had at one point been in his district, including the foothills region and Silver Lake, which were cut out during a previous round of redistricting.
Schiff will hold an open house at his new office on Feb. 21.
