Two Public Meetings on SR-710 North Study Set April 13, 14

The public can attend one or both public meetings in Pasadena April 13 and April 14, 2015 regarding the Caltrans and Metro State Route 710 (SR-710) North Study, but official comments for inclusion in the SR-710 North Study Draft Environment Impact Report (DEIR) will only be accepted at Metro’s April 14 meeting, not the separate City Council meeting April 13.

The two separate meetings include the Pasadena City Council’s meeting Monday, April 13, beginning at 6:30 p.m., with a discussion on the Pasadena Working Group’s recommendations for a preferred alternative. The Working Group’s report, and other related SR-710 information, is online at www.cityofpasadena.net/sr710. The report is at the Pasadena Central Library, 285 E. Walnut Street.

Metro will hold a special hearing from 6-9 p.m., Tuesday, April 14 to receive official comments on the DEIR. The April 14 meeting begins with map viewing from 5-6 p.m. The DEIR is at http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist07/resources/envdocs/docs/710study/draft_eir-eis. A printed copy is also available at the Pasadena Central Library.

More information from Metro on the SR-710 North project can be found at www.metro.net/projects/sr-710-conversations.

Both meetings will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 E. Green St. Both meetings will be recorded by Pasadena Media, www.pasadenamedia.tv, to air on KPAS, the City’s government cable access TV station, seen on Channel 99 by AT&T U-Verse subscribers and on Channel 3 for Charter. The meetings will be streamed on the Pasadena Media website and the City’s website at www.cityofpasadena.net/Media.

Paid parking for the Council’s April 13 meeting will be available at the Paseo Colorado parking structure, 400 E. Green St., at Los Robles Avenue. Parking vouchers will be provided at the meeting site inside the Convention Center.

Official comments on the DEIR, released March 6, 2015, may be provided at Metro’s meeting April 14 or sent no later than Monday, July 6, 2015 to:

By Mail: Garrett Damrath, Chief Environmental Planner, Division of Environmental Planning, Caltrans District 7, 100 S. Main St., MS-16A, Los Angeles, CA 90012 or Caltrans Website Online:

www.dot.ca.gov/dist07/resources/envdocs/docs/710study/draft_eir-eis/comments.php.

Copies of the DEIR’s Executive Summary will be at the Hastings Branch Library, 3325 E. Orange Grove Blvd.; the Hill Avenue Branch Library, 55 S. Hill Ave.; the Lamanda Park Branch Library, 140 S. Altadena Dr.; the La Pintoresca Branch Library, 1355 N. Raymond Ave.; the Linda Vista Branch Library, 1281 Bryant St.; the Villa-Parke Community Center Library, 363 E. Villa St. and Pasadena City College, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd.

The Pasadena Working Group determined that the tunnel option “is not a preferred alternative for Pasadena” and recommended that the project instead concentrate on light rail transit, expanded bus service, local street network improvements and bicycle transit.
