WESTSIDE SUBWAY

Westside Subway Extension

Upcoming Meeting Announcement

Public Scoping Meetings April 13 – 23, 2009

You are invited to a public scoping meeting to initiate the Westside Subway extension project, the next phase of Metro’s study evaluating ways to improve mobility on the Westside of Los Angeles.

These meetings start the Draft Environmental Impact Study/Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIS/EIR) process. Moving forward for analysis in the Draft EIS/EIR are two Build Alternatives – a Wilshire Subway (Alternative 1) and a Wilshire/West Hollywood Subway (Alternative 11) – as well as a No Build alternative and a Transportation Systems Management alternative.

The Draft Environmental Impact Study/Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIS/EIR) for the Westside Subway Extension follows the 18-month Alternatives Analysis Study (AA) of the Westside Extension Transit Corridor which considered whether a transit improvement was needed in the area, and evaluated various types of transit improvements and alignments. The AA included extensive public input and recommended the two Build Alternatives for further evaluation in the Draft EIS/EIR. In January 2009, the Metro Board approved the AA and authorized the Draft EIS/EIR.

The public scoping meetings provide the public an opportunity to comment on the project purpose, alternatives, and the potential effects of construction and operation that should be considered in the Draft EIS/EIR. Metro and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) will be preparing a joint document that meets the requirements of both the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

Agenda

Open House: 6 – 6:30pm
Project Update Presentation: 6:30 – 7:00 pm
Question & Answer Session: 7:00 – 8pm
