This month, the Gateway Cities and Westside Central Service Councils will hold a joint meeting dedicated to the West Santa Ana Branch Transit Corridor (WSAB) project. The Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report (DEIS/R) for the WSAB project was recently released; more information can be found here.
At their July meeting, the Westside Central Service Council requested more time to review their Annual Work Plan, and agreed to meet in August to adopt the FY22 version. The rest of the Service Councils are taking August off, and will resume regular meetings in September.
Also this month, the Service Councils will convene for their first Meet and Confer with new CEO Stephanie Wiggins. The Meet and Confer meetings are quarterly gatherings of all five Regional Service Councils to meet with the CEO and discuss items of interest to the entire Metro service region.
These meetings will all be held on Thursday, August 12 as follows:
Meet and Confer with CEO – 2 to 4 p.m.
Joint Gateway Cities-Westside/Central Service Meeting for West Santa Ana Branch Transit Corridor Project briefing – 6 p.m.
Westside/Central Meeting to adopt FY22 Work Plan – 7:30 p.m.
All Service Council meetings will continue to be held virtually through at least September. With that, the Service Councils would like to know: have you attended a Service Council virtual meeting? Do you think the meetings should continue to provide a virtual option to the public once in-person meetings resume? What would encourage you to attend, or make it easier for you to attend a Service Council meeting? Let us know your thoughts, as the Service Councils will be discussing these topics in upcoming months.
Service Council meeting agendas are always posted here at least 3 days before the meeting, with links to the presentations and to submit comments to be read during the meeting, as well as information on how to call and comment by phone during the meeting.
