Over the next 2 weeks a number of community meetings are planned for bicycle and transit related projects. If you have questions about a project or would just like to show your support, consider attending one of the following:
Regional Connector Community Meetings
First off, Metro is holding multiple Regional Connector Community Meetings to discuss the project’s progress and the possibility of extending when construction crews could work on the project. The first meeting was held last night in the Los Angeles Central Library Taper auditorium at 630 W. Fifth St. Los Angeles, CA 90071. Another will take place tonight, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the same location.
Purple Line Extension Phase
Metro is hosting a meeting at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to discuss preparations for section 1 of the Purple Line Extension. Initial construction of the first section of the extension is set to begin in 2014 and will extend the subway nine miles, adding new stations at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/ Fairfax, and Wilshire/ La Cienega. Staff will be available to present information and answer questions about the project from 5:30pm to 7:30pm in the fifth floor Terrace Room, at 5905 Wilshire Blvd.
Union Station Master Plan
The Union Station Master Plan is still underway. The next public meeting is planned for August. However, in the meanwhile, you can still submit comments or questions by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org
