Article from West Pasadena Residents' Association, The News, Winter 2014
Five cities along the proposed SR-710 extension have joined forces to analyze and respond to an Environmental Impact Report LA Metro and Caltrans expect to publish by spring 2014. The “5-Cities Alliance” includes Glendale, La Canada-Flintridge, Pasadena, Sierra Madre and South Pasadena.
The Alliance will allow participating cities to save money and share information related to SR-710 North studies. It is meant to eliminate expensive, patchwork consultant work.
Each city has agreed to contribute $50,000 (with South Pasadena serving as the treasurer) and serve a specialized role in the search for a professional to analyze the EIR:
Glendale will focus on safety and security; La Canada- Flintridge on soils geology and seismology, Pasadena on legal and the California Environmental Quality Act, Sierra Madre on air quality and South Pasadena on transportation. The Alliance members, jointly, will evaluate the contenders and award the contract.
