REALTORS® Join Fight Against 710 Tunnel



The Pasadena-Foothills Association of REALTORS® has joined the fight against the proposed 710 tunnel now under environmental review. Citing major concerns with impacts on residential neighborhoods from increased air and noise pollution as well as untenable cost estimates, the Board of Directors voted to add its voice to the hundreds of residents and community leaders who oppose the tunnel.
“Our members represent homeowners in Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena and La Canada Flintridge who will see a huge detrimental impact on their property values should the tunnel be approved,” said Association President Ruth McNevin. “We join with so many others to ask METRO to drop the F7 tunnel from further consideration and concentrate on more worthy transportation alternatives with less adverse environmental impacts and more cost effectiveness”.
