The City of Pasadena is seeking to document the displacement of the established community formerly located within the area relinquished for the proposed freeway.
By News Desk
This stub displaced thousands of residents and divided a residential community from an active central business district. The current project seeks documentation regarding freeway expansion at the national and regional level as well as background on the impacts of construction of the SR 210 Freeway. The City seeks to understand the impacts that freeway expansion has had on all sectors of our community.
Extended to July 14
The 710 Freeway Displacement Report Request for Proposals (RFP) is extended to July 14, 2023. The link to the RFP can be found here: Procurement.opengov.com/portal/pasadena/projects/47897
Pasadena residents have an opportunity to reimagine the 710 stub
Community engagement and civic participation will be an integral part of developing a model for the former 710 property.
In recognition of this foundational concept, the City Council has created the Reconnecting Communities 710 Advisory Group (RC 710 Advisory Group) to provide input on the vision, land use, transportation network, infrastructure, economics, and restorative justice lens through which these key policy topics may be evaluated. The RC 710 Advisory Group is a Brown-Act body to provide transparency and encourage public participation.
A website regarding the 710 project is located at this link. The webpage contains information regarding current and past agendas and will be continuously updated to provide updated and relevant data, information, and content.
