The Metro Board of Directors have their monthly meeting at Metro headquarters in downtown Thursday at 9:30 a.m. I’ll be there to cover the meeting and here’s quick look at the agenda and some of the decisions the Board is scheduled to make:
Item 5 expands the draft environmental impact report for the Downtown Connector to consider the train going under Alameda Street with a new underground station in Little Tokyo. Here’s a recent post.
Item 18 would approve a comprehensive audit of the money that Metro spends on litigation. There will likely be some debate among Board Members over the need for an audit, its cost and who would perform an audit if approved.
Item 34 would make Metro the lead agency in the environmental review of the city of Los Angeles’ downtown streetcar project.
Item 47 would allow for a delay of up to 19 months in implementing Metro’s Express Lanes project on parts of the 10 and 110 freeways. Here’s yesterday’s post about that issue.
