Report on Pasadena City Council Meeting

From Sylvia Plummer, January 14, 2013

At Monday's meeting the Pasadena City Council voted unanimously to appropriate $50,000 to the SR-710 5-City Alliance to study the SR-710 draft EIR.  The draft EIR will be released this March/April of 2014.  During public comment Nancy van den Hout asked the City Council to send an official to the January 15th Metro Planning and Programming Committee meeting.  (more information on the meeting below under item #2)  A decision was made to send an official from Pasadena.  Councilmember Gordo volunteered to attend if Mayor Bogaard is not able to attend due to prior commitments. The City Council also agreed with many that spoke during public comment that several of the city departments should have input to the draft EIR, and that there should be a way for the public to voice their concerns to the City of Pasadena.  (Not just to Metro)

Please note that the article mentions the Metro meeting is on January 22nd, that is incorrect, it is on January 15th. Also, that the meeting will be held at the

Metro Planning and Programming Committee
Metro Board Room, 3rd Floor
One Gateway Plaza
Los Angeles

and not in Paramount.
