Los Angeles City Council supported our motion today that says #No710 tunnel and supports alternative funding plans that include #ElSereno and #NELA. Tomorrow, 5/25, at the 9 a.m. Metro Board meeting – I am seeking an amendment to a Metro motion that currently stops the 710 tunnel (great news), but reallocates funds to the San Gabriel Valley only (bad news!). I’m working with our @mayorofla and Supervisor @hildalsolis to make sure our City of LA communities like El Sereno and Northeast Los Angeles, along with East LA – communities that have been heavily impacted by the 710 freeway for decades, get their fair share of funds to support good, local transportation projects in the future.
We need your help to provide public comment that supports an amendment to include our LA communities impacted by 710, which are not in the San Gabriel sub-region. If this amendment is not made, it will mean that El Sereno and surrounding LA communities could miss out on being able to apply for hundreds of millions of dollars for future improvements that mitigate 710 related traffic. Please show up and add your voice to our collective efforts!
