I became involved in fighting the building of
the 710 tunnel in May 2012 when one of Metro's ideas was to have the
tunnel portal in my neighborhood, thereby virtually destroying my
100-year-old neighborhood. I would then have a view of 6 lanes
of traffic speeding behind my house, including numerous big rigs. Metro
had detailed destruction plans. Those plans were shelved after much
uproar from us, but Metro still went ahead with plans for another tunnel
route, one that will destroy Pasadena. Why should you become involved
in this? Because you won't be watching the Rose Parade on January 1
after the tunnel starts being built. The tunnel construction will impact
the parade route for 10-15 years.
I ask you to take the time to watch
the video "Pasadena, California" at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhIERwrLhRo
and to sign the petition at http://www.no710.com/.
I know many
people do not like the sign petitions, but signing this one will not
come back to bite you. Thank you and please share this post.
