Do you have questions about the progress being made by the Metro Gold Line in its eastward extension from Pasadena to Azusa? Do you know about street closures in Arcadia and other areas? If you have questions like these and others, then the person to answer them is Sylvia Beltran who has been in charge of Community Relations with Foothill Extension Construction Authority for the past three years.

Sylvia Beltran will be guest speaker at the Monday evening, March 11 meeting of the Arcadia Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). The group meets at the Church of the Good Shepherd’s Jordan Hall, 400 W. Duarte Rd. (SW corner of Duarte Rd. and Holly Ave.), Arcadia. Socializing begins at 6:30 p.m. with Beltran’s presentation to follow at 7:00 p.m. Arcadia AAUW invites the public to attend this timely meeting and to actively participate in a question-answer period following the presentation. The meeting is free, and ample parking is available in the church parking lot.

In the past, Beltran has held similar community relations positions with major companies, such as the Golden State Water Company, as well as being a board member of the SGV-YMCA and other organizations. She holds a B. S. in business from CSU-Los Angeles and has also studied at the University of Michigan. Along with giving her audience an update on the Gold Line’s eastward progress, Beltran will also focus on careers for women in the business of light-rail regional construction projects.

    Can’t make the meeting-but a interesting question is: Is the contractor on this job offered an incentive if the job is completed under budget and on time/or a penalty if over budget and late? And if not-why not?
