No 710 Petition

Posted by Peggy Drouet on Facebook, February 24, 2014

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.
