Status of Environmental Assessment for Candidate Maintenance Facility Sites
The operation of a new transit line requires a maintenance facility. Currently, Metro is evaluating options for the required facility. Several sites are being considered. An Environmental Assessment/Revised Draft Environmental Impact Report (EA/Revised Draft EIR) focusing solely on maintenance facility issues is scheduled to be available for public review and comment later this year. Originally scheduled for a summer release, it was determined that additional analysis is required to evaluate which option best serves the needs of the Crenshaw/LAX Light Rail Transit Line. As soon as our evaluation is complete, we will send a Save-the-Date notice for the public hearing.
October/November 2010 Station Area Planning Workshops
Please stay tuned for information about our upcoming Station Area Planning Workshops in October and November. Over the past few months, we have held several Station Area Planning Workshops. During the next series of community workshops, we will provide a project update, discuss input received from past workshops, and present new information on station alternatives, station area planning, streetscape, and landscape design concepts. We will send a Save-the-Date notice for these workshops soon.
