On Wednesday a consortium calling themselves the “Friends of Beverly Hills High School” unveiled a change.org petition asking U.S. President Donald Trump and Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao to force the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to re-route the planned Purple Line extension from under BHHS into Century City by withholding federal funds.
In concert with the petition, the consortium, which is comprised of a group of residents wishing to remain anonymous, activated a website titled “Stop The Purple Threat” that details the hazards of running a subway tunnel under BHHS.
“Hopefully this website will initiate a more robust, independent environmental review,” said one resident who helped create the website.
