trucks using the freeway. Soundwalls are desperately needed in this
area, but the Glendale City Council has turned a deaf ear to
representing our needs here in the foothills.
The La Canada Flintridge City Council has allocated funds for a
210 Freeway soundwall study for their city. At the beginning of that
process, they asked the city of Glendale to join with them, which
Glendale declined. The city of Glendale now has another opportunity
to join the soundwall study for the Glendale portion of the 210
Freeway (from Pennsylvania Avenue to Lowell Avenue) by joining with
La Canada Flintridge to extend that study to the La Crescenta portion
In addition, the La Canada Flintridge City Council recently voted
against the extension of the 710 Freeway to the 210 Freeway because
it would increase even more traffic on the 210 Freeway. The Glendale
City Council approved the 710 Freeway extension.
The 210 Freeway negatively (affects) hundreds of Glendale
households between Pennsylvania and Lowell avenues. This area is
completely exposed to freeway noise, which affects our ability to
enjoy our homes and yards.
I am asking the Glendale City Council members to remember their
constituents here in La Crescenta and extend the La Canada Flintridge
soundwall study to include the Glendale portion between Pennsylvania
and Lowell avenues.
If you are a reader living in the La Crescenta portion of
Glendale, and would like to have a soundwall study, please contact
the Glendale City Council members and share your concern with them.
You can contact them at 548-4844, or at www.ci.glendale.ca.us.
In addition, the Glenwood Oaks Neighborhood Assn. is forming a
freeway soundwall committee. For more information, please e-mail
MMasters7@yahoo.com. If you live in the unincorporated area of La
Crescenta, contact a member of the Crescenta Valley Town Council and
ask that Los Angeles County allocate funds to be included in the
