Below is Metro’s official response to the Community Connector Coalition’s letter suggesting realignments to stations and routes for the Regional Connector Project. As we mentioned in this morning’s headlines, the group’s letter can be read here.
We take the coalition’s letter and all public comments seriously, and will follow our well-established technical process to review and respond to all letters and comments to the Regional Connector’s environmental document. We are currently reviewing the letter with the project’s technical, environmental and operations staff and consultants, and expect to have written responses in the coming weeks. The Final EIS/EIR, which will include responses to all public comments, will be submitted for Metro Board consideration in December contingent on FTA approval.
