MISSION AND PURPOSE STATEMENT
The Regional Connector Community Leadership Council (RCCLC) is an advisory group formed by the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) to provide sustained involvement by community representatives from all parts of the alignment area of the Regional Connector light rail transit line. The mission of the RCCLC is to foster, advance and promote community-based dialogue and information-sharing regarding the needs and preferences of stakeholders in the neighborhoods where the Regional Connector will be constructed and operated.
The purpose of the RCCLC is to provide community-based input to Metro, including feedback on the project’s design, construction, and safe operation. The group seeks to make decisions based on a results,-oriented, consensus-seeking and collaborative process. The involved representatives will serve both in an advisory capacity to Metro, and as liaisons to the wider group of project stakeholders.
Members of the RCCLC will advise Metro, partnering when needed to address specific actions identified in the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Plan (MMRP), including providing input to Metro regarding the:
● Construction Mitigation and Outreach Plans
● Implementation plan for services to support businesses/organizations affected by construction
● Updates on construction progress, and upcoming transit, parking, or access changes
In addition, the RCCLC will assess and identify the Regional Connector project’s capacity to leverage public resources for neighborhood benefit, including community enhancements, and economic development along the Regional Connector corridor.
