Attentive readers already know that Thursday’s meeting of the Board of Directors is an important one. The Board is scheduled to select a route for both the Westside Subway Extension and the Regional Connector and to vote on launching final environmental studies for both projects.
The studies are required by law and a necessary precursor to actual construction.
As many of you know, Board meetings are usually scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. The meeting tomorrow is set for a 9 a.m. start.
If you are planning on attending in person, keep in mind that the meeting likely will be crowded. I encourage you to arrive early. Caffeine is available right down the hall in the Metro cafeteria.
It’s also possible to listen to the meeting over the phone by dialing 213-922-6045.
Of course, we’ll be providing coverage of the meeting throughout the day on The Source.

I listened in to the meeting and it seems the BH people are all about fear-mongering. Too bad they play that card, using their kids as props, to try to push for the Santa Monica Blvd station.
The more we make it harder for people to use mass transit (less desireable stations, farther distances to get to stations, less options), the less people are going to take mass transit and in the end… WE FAIL! So in the end the BH people are hurting their community and their kids, not helping them.

What’s with the NIMBYism? We all know building the station in the middle of Century City instead of on the fringe next to a closed golf course and possible seismic zone is much better. I worked in CC once and it needs a station. The MTA built tunnels to the Valley under homes with no problems!
I lived in LA my whole life and this may be one of the best things to happen to us, less traffic and a better way to get around. This is a long term issue not a short term political opportunity for BH. Too bad the BH guys are playing the us against them card with the MTA… Very shortsighted.
