Healthy Living Campus impacts
Daily Breeze, 8/11/22
The [proposed] BCHD Healthy Living Campus is anything but healthy. It is an overdone, glass and concrete superstructure that looms high over any surrounding structures. It’s five-plus years of demolition, excavation, concrete grinding, hauling away of debris, and construction will add noise(beyond acceptable levels for a residential area), and traffic to an already busy vehicular travel area. Imagine an estimated 10,000 heavy truck trips along with worker’s vehicles. (And where will they park?)
Worse yet, the breezes we’ve come to enjoy become a 24/7 conduit for toxins and carcinogens (documented in BCHD’s own environmental impact report) to be inhaled by school children attending Beryl Heights Elementary, Towers Elementary and Redondo Union High School.
We urge the surrounding community to stand up to BCHD’s CEO and board of directors and oppose this assault to our health.
