Board of Directors meet Thursday at 9 a.m.

As usual, the meeting is in the Metro headquarters adjacent to Los Angeles Union Station. The public is welcome to attend. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.

Here’s the agenda. The big item tomorrow is the Board’s consideration of the Crenshaw/LAX Line’s final environmental document.

The Board will also consider of a careers construction policy that seeks to hire more locals and union members to work on Metro construction projects.

In addition, the Board will consider: changing the names of six rail and bus stations, a $37.3-million contract to a firm to conduct the environmental analysis on the 710 gap project and grade-crossing improvements along the Eastside Gold Line (in street warning lights, signal adjustments).

And, of course, there’s item 52: consideration of providing free fares to all Girl Scouts in uniform on Oct. 29 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts.
