Next time you’re in traffic on the 210, wondering how bad it will be in the next 10 years, consider attending the upcoming Pasadena-based panel discussions about transportation issues. On January 22, anyone interested in gaining first-hand information on the often-controversial plans for transportation improvement in the San Gabriel Valley is invited to attend a presentation entitled: “Regional Transportation 101: Where Do We Go from Here?”
One Community, a grassroots think tank, will host two panels, each led by expert speakers in the fields of public affairs, transportation and environmentalism. The first panel will inform the public of what a sustainable transportation future may look like in our town and the second will cover the issues surrounding the extension of the 710 freeway and the plans for a proposed tunnel that would perhaps provide a solution to this decades-long battle.
Several influential and well-known public figures, including mayor Bill Bogaard and city councilman Chris Holden, will attend the event. This free sneak peak into the thoughts of those who run transportation in our city sounds like it will certainly give curious citizens the perfect way to feel better informed about where we are headed, complete with the explanation of a 30-year master plan. And breakfast is even provided at no extra cost!

Jan. 22, 2011 from 7:30 a.m.- noon
