A scoping meeting to discuss returning streetcar service to downtown Los Angeles will be held from 4 to 7: 30 p.m. today at the Los Angeles Theatre in downtown at 615 South Broadway.
The big point of the meeting is to discuss and suggest possible routes for the project, which still needs to be funded in order to be built. As far as routes go, nothing has been decided yet — this is the start of the formal environmental review process. Downtown L.A. covers an enormous area and I hope a wide variety of ideas are discussed and refined for further study.
For tons more info about the project, visit the L.A. Streetcar website. The streetcar is a city of Los Angeles project but Metro is overseeing the environmental review aspect of the project.
