COMMENT PERIOD EXTENDED ON PROPOSED REGULATIONS GOVERNING STATE ROUTE 710 PROPERTY SALES

Caltrans has extended the written comment period on the proposed regulations governing the State Route 710 property sales in order to give the public more time to understand and comment on this complex process. The originally scheduled deadline was Thursday, July 31. The new deadline is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 2.

The proposed regulations will outline how surplus properties along the SR-710 corridor in Pasadena, South Pasadena and El Sereno will be sold pursuant to state law. Caltrans is requesting the public’s input as it adopts regulations to sell surplus properties along the State Route 710 corridor.

Written comments must be received by Caltrans no later than 5 p.m. on September 2, 2014. These may be submitted by e-mail to Affordable_Sales_Program@dot.ca.gov; by fax to 916-654-6378; or by mail to:

Caltrans Division of Right of Way and Land Surveys
ATTN:  Affordable Sales Program
California Department of Transportation
1120 N Street, MS 37
Sacramento, CA  95814


Caltrans will also host another public hearing in El Sereno in August. Date, time and location will be posted in the near future.

Caltrans will submit final regulations to the Office of Administrative Law for approval later this fall.

Caltrans set up a hotline for English and Spanish speakers (213-897-8184) and a web site (www.dot.ca.gov/dist07/business/710sales) to help answer questions about the proposed sale process and how it will impact tenants after the regulations are approved and adopted this fall.
