Two 710 Meetings Scheduled This Week

More technical details are expected to be shared with concerned citizens.

On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, local residents will have the opportunity to discuss with experts and officials plans for the one 710 extension route that Metro has yet to scratch from its list: an underground tunnel that would run beneath the South Pasadena and El Sereno.

While several foothill cities have opposed the 710 tunnel, San Marino's City Council has been supportive of the idea.

Tuesday, Sept. 18, 7 p.m.
Pasadena Convention Center Ballroom, 300 E. Green St.

This forum, hosted by Pasadena City Councilmember Steve Madison, will feature experts from several fields who will answer specific questions about the proposed freeway tunnel.

Those slated to attend are Dr. Rob McConnell University of Southern California, who will speak about health concerns related to freeways; Dr. Ken Hudnut, who will discuss the technical challenges of building the proposed F7 tunnel; Susan Mossman, who will speak briefly on concerns about the impact on historic properties; Dr. John Seinfeld, who will address pollution issues resulting from freeways and  Ara Najarian, who currently serves on the Glendale Housing Authority. 

A representative from Metro has also been invited to attend the meeting.

Wednesday, Sept. 19, 6:30-8 p.m.
El Sereno Senior Center, 4818 Klamath Pl.

According to Metro, "the meeting will include a description of the environmental review process and an opportunity to hear about the proposed [F7 Tunnel] alternative from Metro technical staff. All homeowners, residents, and prospective residents are urged to attend the meeting and voice their opinions on this important issue."
