Urgent Call To Action: Metro Board Meeting, July 24, 2014

From Sylvia Plummer, July 23, 2014

Urgent Call To Action

Need people to attend the Metro Board Meeting and speak during Agenda Item #25

Thursday, July 24, 2014
Why?  Leland Dolley (Counsel for City of Alhambra) and Barbara Messina  are going to make a play at the Metro Board Meeting. 
They are making a request to restore the 710N Gap Closure Project to the Highway Program Map and Project List in the Draft Short Range Transportation Plan (SRTP) - Board Agenda Item #25
Isn't it clear that the 710 North is not a highway project?  It is a gap closure awaiting an EIR review.
We need people to attend the Metro Board meeting at 9:30 a.m at One Gateway Plaza (building adjacent to Union Station), Metro Board Room, 3rd floor.  
There is parking for $6 under Metro's Headquarters or take the Goldline and get off at  Union Station.
If you can attend, please be prepared to speak for one minute, telling the  Board  why they should not add the 710 North project to the Highway Program Map and Project List, after all, it is a gap closure awaiting an EIR review.   You must fill out a speaker card when you arrive at the  Board  Chambers (3rd floor), and the item number is 25.
