POLL: Alhambra city officials have pronounced July 10, 2013 as "710 Day" to celebrate its efforts to close the gap with a family festival at the arch park at Fremont and Valley.
According to the city website, the event will include "educational presentations and booths to raise awareness about air quality and reducing traffic congestion by CLOSING THE GAP via the proposed SR-710 extension from Alhambra to Pasadena."
But not everyone is a fan. The Pasadena Sun in an editorial cartoon recently ridiculed the idea, with a cartoon showing Alhambra Mayor Steven Placido standing by himself.
What do you think about the idea of 710 day? Is this a good way for the city to support efforts to close the gap?
