Joe Cano Videos: SR710 Historical Record

From Sylvia Plummer, August 13, 2014

Here are the early videos from 2003 & 2009 that were discussed at the last No710 Action Committee meeting.

The 2003 video shows SCAG, Metro and Caltrans introduction of a Tunnel idea to the City Councils.
South Pasadena City Council Meeting - 1/15/2003:


Here  is what Roger Snoble is referring to when he mentions the "napkin" :

Pasadena City Council Meeting - 3/24/2003:

La Canada City Council Meeting - 10/25/2003:
 
Glendale City Council Meeting - 7/28/2009 -  SR-710 Resolution.  Representatives of SCAG ask the City of Glendale to support the closing of the gap with a toll tunnel.  Barbara Messina and Nat Reed (Former Chair of the 710 Coalition) speak for the tunnel.  Many excellent comments made against the toll tunnel.  Anthony Portantino takes the 710 Tunnel project & it's supporters to task. (starts at 1:19.51 and speaks for 5 minutes)

Thanks to Joe Cano for putting this together.
