South Pasadena City Council members will consider a resolution that supports Measure J during a special meeting Tuesday.
Measure J, which, if approved, will extend the voter-approved one-half cent traffic relief sales tax for another 30 years. It was added to the Nov. 6 ballot by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The measure is subtitled: Accelerating Traffic Relief, Job Creation. The draft resolution can be found on the City website here.
A Pasadena Star News article states that some opponents to Metro's SR-710 N. Gap Closure Project have objected to Measure J, opining it will help Metro with the freeway project. However, Metro, the article says, has maintained that Measure R "provided sufficient funding for the SR-710, so the project would not be affected by Measure J.''
Since this is a special meeting, it will not be broadcast or webstreamed, according to a press release from the city. However, audio recordings will be available through the City Clerk’s Office at 626-403-7230.
