The fact that Beach Cities Health District will be in the red is not a reason for them to assault the local neighborhoods with 10 to 15 years of construction for their Healthy Living Campus. Nearby property values will fall, homes will become harder to sell, and commute times will rise. Asthma, heart disease and stroke will all increase from the construction particulates. The constant noise, heavy truck traffic, sirens, and vibration will cause chronic stress, which Bluezones.com calls the “silent killer,” shortening the lives all around BCHD, including an entire generation of school children. If BCHD is so ready to sacrifice the local neighborhoods, then they need to reconsider their mission.
