Residents along the Ventura Freeway corridor are distressed at the possibility of elevated trains running through their communities. Several proposals are being considered that would run monorail, magnetic-levitation or other rail systems as high as 70 feet in the air through residential neighborhoods.
Both sides of the Ventura Freeway are flanked by residences. Elevated trains, stations and parking lots will cause monumental problems--noise, visual blight and traffic congestion within a few feet of these homes, an intolerable condition. It is very easy for those whose homes are not affected to sacrifice the residences of others.
