  1. ciacci: You’re suggesting the existing Division 22 facility. One of the four options is to slightly expand that facility by 3.5 acres, to provide storage capacity for the new Crenshaw Line trains.

    Steve Hymon: When is the FEIR for the Crenshaw project going to come out? I remember it was supposed to be finished in January.
