Second round of community meetings for Westside Subway Final EIR Planned in March

Metro will be holding its second round of community update meetings for the Westside Subway Extension Project Final EIR March 21 through 29.  Among the updates will be a report on current geotechnical work and the status of the Century City Station. Here’s the news release with meeting dates:

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is holding community update meetings March 21 through 29 for the Westside Subway Extension Project currently going through its Final Environmental Impact Statement/Report (EIS/EIR) planning phase.

Metro will provide feedback from its January community meetings, updates on the project’s ongoing geotechnical investigations, status of Station Area Advisory Groups, as well as project cost estimates and the status of the Century City station.

All the meetings begin at 6 p.m. and will include a presentation followed by an opportunity for public input.  The content for all three meetings will be identical.  Members of the public are invited to participate in the meeting that is most convenient for them:

  • Monday, March 21, 6-8 p.m., LACMA West – Terrace Room, 5th Floor, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90036.  Served by Metro Lines 20, 720, 217 & 780. Validated vehicle parking is available in the museum’s 6th Street underground garage.  Enter from 6th and Ogden.  Spanish & Korean translation will be provided.  For added convenience, Metro will offer a live webcast of this meeting that can be viewed from any computer by visiting metro.net/westside.
  • Wednesday, March 23, 6-8 p.m., Westwood United Methodist Church – Fellowship Hall, 3rd Floor, 10497 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90024.  Served by Metro Line 20.  Free parking is available below Belmont Village, the building east of the Sanctuary. From Wilshire Boulevard, use the Belmont Village driveway and proceed under the overhang to the underground parking lot.  Park on levels P2, P3 or P4 and take the church elevator in the southwest corner of the parking lot.  There will be signs to direct attendees to the meeting room. Spanish translation will be provided.

The final environmental review will continue into the summer when it is anticipated that the document will be released for public review.  Metro Board adoption could occur in the fall at which point the project would proceed into final design and construction based on funding availability.

  1. We have to bombard the March 29th meeting in Roxbury with reasonableness. We have to go to Constellation and not settle with Century Park East as an “alternative”. That decision can haunt us forever.

  2. Is Metro also validating bus riders to the LACMA meeting? If it isn’t, Metro is once again encouraging car use over its own system. Genius.

    Very good point. Metro really needs to do this if they are not already. If not, then its a completely backwards approach by metro which makes no sense at all.
