Metro has extended the scoping period for public comment on the North Hollywood to Pasadena Bus Rapid Transit Project (BRT) to August 15. We are also holding a community open house on Wednesday, Aug. 7 in Eagle Rock.
This open house will allow those interested in the project to get more information, speak one-on-one with project team members and provide additional comments regarding environmental concerns, route options and other issues that could be addressed in the project’s Draft Environmental Impact Report. Comments can be submitted in writing or verbally to a court reporter who will be at the open house.
The community open house details are as follows:
Wednesday, Aug. 7, 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Occidental College, Samuelson Pavilion
1600 Campus Road
Los Angeles, CA 90041
Metro is dedicated to civil and constructive discussion and will work to ensure that public meetings, including this meeting on August 7, are conducted in a manner that makes all participants feel welcome and comfortable.
All Metro meetings are held in ADA accessible facilities and are accessible by transit. Spanish translation will be provided. ADA accommodations and other translations are available by calling 323.466.3876 or California Relay Service at 711 at least 72 hours in advance.
The public scoping period will remain open for comments until August 15, 2019. For additional project information or to provide feedback, visit the NoHo-Pasadena BRT Project website and this previous Source post.

Let’s hope we actually see some civility here…
Open houses generally are more civil, since you can’t applaud or boo other comments. They also are more informative in actually sharing information and answering questions. At this stage, since no project has been defined, it is better for taking community sentiment. You can make performative public comments once a project has been defined and it goes before the board.
Wait, you can boo at these meetings? Cause oh man I will make these sell their homes immediately!!
On a serious note, I have actually thought about joining the meetings for this one in particular simply because, if I end up getting stuck in LA the rest of my life, Eagle Rock will be the place I am willing to conform with, so having this run on Colorado would be crucial. But please Metro, I don’t know who on earth gave you this dumb idea but remove the stop on Townsend?? If the 780 doesn’t stop there why on earth even add this now?? You guys really need to start lessening the stops here. Removing this stop will save time AND money.
The best way to limit stops and keep the BRT moving faster is to study the route on the 134 with a stop at Harvey and Figueroa
