Phoenix, AZ – No South Mountain Freeway Group to host No Loop 202 meet-up Tuesday, July 23.

No Loop 202 Meet-up Info Session
@ Cesar Chavez Public Library
3635 W Baseline Rd, Laveen
One of the main goals of this meeting is to listen to concerns of landowners and those living near the proposed route. We will have information regarding landowner rights on hand if you were unable to get them at one of ADOT’s Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) hearings. We are also helping to initiate a place for those affected by the route to come together and speak to one another. Please feel free to bring your feelings of frustrations with the freeway and share them with others. As a group at this meeting and in the future we hope to help answer questions that individuals and families have.
All EIS comments are due by July 24. We will have documents to assist you in making a last minute statement on one of the computers in the library. In addition to a slideshow of photographs of areas at risk of being destroyed by the mountain, there will be maps of the route on hand to look at.
At a recent ADOT EIS hearing, Erika Machuca had the following reaction, “I met people in Laveen that say they have been under the threat of their home being taken away from them since 1985. Most people don’t have to worry to live under the threat of having the land beneath their feet and the roof above their head taken from them, so it’s easy to believe that these public projects are justifiable.”
