Eagle Rock is a Community of immeasurable diversity. Each one of us will have a multitude of concerns and proposals on how to improve our beloved Neighborhood. Every one of those ideas should be considered for they are equally as important as the Eagle Rocker sharing it.
As Representatives of the People of Eagle Rock, it is the responsibility of the Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council to allocate its resources toward a Collaborative purpose. The candidates of the Progress & Collaboration slate have listened to your concerns.
We, of the Progress & Collaboration Slate, propose a Vision for Eagle Rock:
Let us Revitalize Colorado Boulevard - Colorado Boulevard feels more like a highway than a small town's Main Street. We must remodel Colorado Boulevard and deliver a definitive proposal to our City Officials for implementation in order to bring back the "Small Town" feel for our Residents, Small Business Owners, and Patrons.
Let us reinvigorate our appeal to entrepreneurs by revisiting the Colorado Specific Plan and reaffirm our dedication to pedestrians by considering an increase in sidewalk size, reduction in speed limit, a two-lane design, bike lanes, additional green spaces, and practical parking alternatives.
Let us attract new patrons with storefronts such as additional bookstores, galleries, a Student Center, and a diverse set of family-friendly shops.
Let us consult with Urban Planners, examine previously successful models, build partnerships with developers, and seek financial expertise to build a definitively complete proposal for the redevelopment of one of Eagle Rock’s most Iconic Main Streets.
Let us contribute to established organizations such as Take Back the Boulevard, TERA, CERB, and all others in order to create strong alliances and achieve our goal.
Let us stimulate the local economy and increase local property value while protecting Eagle Rock’s Historical Elements and preserving the Small Town feel we all embrace.
Let Us Reaffirm Our Opposition to the 710 Extension - The 710 "Gap Closure Project" is full of unresolved matters, with air quality and health being a top concern.
Let us consider that this 4.5-mile long toll tunnel would have the emissions of over 7,000 vehicles captured daily and released at either end of tunnel; one end being in our neighboring City of Pasadena, thus creating the potential of "Cancer Alley’" air quality to arrive in Eagle Rock.
Let us Support South Pasadena and other neighboring Communities in their stand for clean air by building a strong alliance with their ongoing campaign.
Let us keep an open dialogue with all Community Leaders in order to form a stronger coalition against this project and allow all residents of Eagle Rock to breathe easier.
Let Us Tackle Litter in Our Community - Litter has become an issue on the streets of Eagle Rock. A clean Community can be reached by forming partnerships with local businesses, issuing more receptacles, and empowering our local volunteers.
