• San Gabriel Residents Fuming Over Potential Bus Smoke


    by Winston Chua

    The San Gabriel City Council Tuesday night gave ear to someof the City’s disgruntled residents, who are upset about the prospect ofadditional traffic, noise and air pollution that may come from buses beingparked at San Gabriel High School.

    Alhambra Unified wants to use SGHS as a terminal for theirbuses because the District wants to expand Central High School. The meetingTuesday was filled with fewer outspoken residents than two weeks ago, whenthrongs of residents loudly protested the City’s meeting.

    “I think there’s still an opportunity for AUSD to recognizethe significant impact that the busing has on San Gabriel and its residents,”said San Gabriel Councilman David Gutierrez. The city leader is bothered by theDistrict’s apparent resistance to disclose certain pieces of information.

    Attorney Lisa Kranitz provided the Council with a verbalupdate and said it would be difficult to win a legal battle against theDistrict, which had prepared a negative declaration in June of 2008. Thestatute of limitations in this case far exceeds the 30 days San Gabriel had toappeal the approval.

    Kranitz also indicated that the District may have alreadycomplied with CEQA, or the California Environmental Quality Act. Unfortunately,CEQA statutes do not require residents to have notice, but merely a noticepublished in a newspaper.

    Trying to find a middle ground, the District has moved thebus parking 150 feet further from San Gabriel residents, placing the buses inAlhambra city limits. This move means that the District does not have to createa site plan.

    “We need the District to exhaust every possiblealternative,” said Gutierrez.
