The first regional meeting explaining the prospects for a High-Speed Rail that would pass through Alhambra near or on the 10 Freeway will be held October 6 from 4pm to 8pm in the city of El Monte, officials announced Monday night. The City Manager, Julio Fuentes, who has voiced his opposition to the project, said, that is not enough. "Alhambra needs its own particular meeting," he said, encouraging residents to tell the authorities they oppose the project. "We strongly recommend that in addition to the El Monte meeting they have one here in Alhambra." Since two meetings last month, officials said, information about resistance locally has traveled over the state and communities in Northern California, such as Mendel Park and Palo Alto have contacted the city.
