The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday joined several othercities in voting unanimously to oppose a tunnel extension of the Long Beach (710) Freeway through Pasadena. Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials last week narrowed the scope of possible routes for closing the so-called 710 gap between Alhambra and Pasadena from 12 to just five - one of them an extension of the 710 Freeway to the Foothill (210) Freeway. MTA officials have maintained that they have not settled on any one option, but critics say the agency favors the tunnel because it could better accommodate truck traffic carrying cargo up from local Southland ports.

A proposed mixed-use project along Colorado Street that was voted down by the City Council last June because it was too big has been scaled down and the public can comment on its draft environmental impact report through Monday. Glendale-based CMGT Construction Co. initially wanted to build a four-story building with 90 residential units, 28,828 square feet of retail space, a daycare and a restaurant on a .99-acre lot it owns at 507-525 W. Colorado St. Nearly a year after the development was denied, the commercial component is supplanted with 18,000 square feet of medical-office space and the daycare has been nixed, while the 1,700-square-foot restaurant is scaled back to a 1,000-square-foot counter-service eatery with limited seating, according to the draft environmental impact report.

Dear city of Glendale representatives: We are writing to request that a new Environmental Impact Report be required for the proposed cemetery project on the Oakmont V property. Use of this property as a cemetery is an entirely new and different project and, therefore, requires a new EIR. Use of this property as a cemetery was not considered nor discussed during the deliberation over use of the site as a proposed residential project. The proposal to use this site as a cemetery requires by state law a project description, project objectives, alternatives to the project, and an opportunity for we the public to review and comment on what is proposed.

LOS ANGELES — County transportation officials today will consider creating a community advisory committee for the proposed 710 Freeway tunnel extension while beefing up the environmental study process. Opponents of the proposed tunnel extension were dealt a major blow last month when the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority approved $59 million for the environmental studies needed to move the proposal forward. Meanwhile, many San Gabriel Valley cities heralded the decision as helping to improve the traffic and pollution associated with the Long Beach Freeway's dead end in Alhambra, which forces thousands of cars onto city streets and other area freeways.

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Opponents of the proposed underground tunnel extension of the Long Beach (710) Freeway were dealt a major blow Thursday when county transportation officials voted to initiate a major environmental study of project. The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority voted Thursday to approve the more in-depth environmental studies needed to move the proposal forward. Glendale Mayor Ara Najarian, who as chairman of the MTA Board of Directors has been a vocal opponent of the tunnel, attempted to push an amendment that would have called on officials to first study all available solutions to the traffic congestion — including a tunnel, light rail and freight corridor improvements — and compare the cost benefits, but that effort failed.

GLENDALE — State transportation officials Wednesday said they would continue to focus on a proposed underground tunnel extension for the Long Beach (710) Freeway, just days after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a law that would have made it the only available option. On Sunday, Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill written by state Sen. Gil Cedillo that would have required any extension of the 710 Freeway to be underground, calling the legislation “unnecessary.” “There is absolutely no need to enact statutory restrictions that would mandate certain project design options or remove others from potential consideration,” Schwarzenegger said in the bill’s veto message.

GLENDALE — A judge on Friday dismissed a lawsuit filed against the city that claimed officials failed to adequately address the impacts of a major downtown planning document, but the underlying fight will continue. The man behind that fight — frequent City Hall critic Herbert Molano — said he will eventually appeal the dismissal as he continues his quest for more open government and accountability. That effort has often been the source of contention between him and city officials, who often bear the brunt of his sometimes acidic critiques on management and performance.
