SR-710 April Events

From Sylvia Plummer, April 2, 2015

Mark your calendars.  Below is a calendar of three events taking place this month.  
If your schedule can only fit in one meeting:   You are needed at the Pasadena City Council meeting on Monday April 13th @ 6:30pm.  There will be plenty of speakers, we need an audience to support the No 710 Tunnel side as well as the Pasadena SR-710 Working Group (more information provided under item 2 below).
The City of Pasadena has an announcement postcard for the two meetings in Pasadena.  The attached postcard has been prepared by the Public Information Office and distributed to Pasadena Council members and Pasadena Public Libraries.

SR-710 Public Hearings:  It is not necessary to be there the entire time.  You can stop by and take a look at the maps and ask the SR-710 Engineers questions.
